Who Leads the NFL in Turnovers?

The NFL season is well underway, and there are already a few teams that are making a name for themselves in the turnover department. Who leads the NFL in turnovers so far?

The Green Bay Packers

Packers have been one of the best teams in the NFL this season. They are currently leading the league in turnovers with a plus-12 turnover differential. The defense has been stellar, forcing 19 turnovers (tied for second in the NFL) while the offense has only turned it over seven times (tied for fifth fewest).

Some of this can be attributed to luck, but a lot of it is simply due to the fact that the Packers have been taking care of the ball and forcing their opponents into mistakes. If they can continue to do that, they will be a difficult team to beat down the stretch.

The New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have been the team to beat in the NFL for the past few years, and they continue to be one of the best teams in the league at taking the ball away from their opponents. The Pats have racked up an impressive number of turnovers this season, and they currently lead the NFL in turnover differential. With a +14 turnover margin, the Patriots are well on their way to yet another winning season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of the most dominant teams in the NFL for the past decade. They have won Super Bowls, made the playoffs, and had some of the best players in the league. However, one thing that they have not been able to do is protect the football. The Steelers have led the NFL in turnovers for the past two seasons, and they are on pace to do so again this year.

Turnovers are a big reason why the Steelers have not been able to win a Super Bowl in recent years. In their last two playoff appearances, they have turned the ball over a combined 11 times. In their most recent loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, they turned it over five times. The Jaguars didn’t even need to score a touchdown to win that game; they just needed to not turn it over themselves.

The good news for Steelers fans is that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The team has made some changes this offseason that should help them cut down on turnovers. They brought in a new offensive coordinator, Randy Fichtner, who is known for his ability to develop quarterbacks and an offense that takes care of the ball. They also drafted James Washington, a receiver who has shown an ability to catch passes in traffic and make plays after the catch. If the Steelers can cut down on their turnover rate, they could be contenders for a Super Bowl again next year.

The Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks currently lead the NFL in turnovers, with 18. The New England Patriots are close behind with 17, while the Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens have 16 each.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers leads the NFL in turnovers with 27.
