DeForest Buckner believes Colts can be ‘No. 1 defense’ in NFL

A trip to the playoffs and finishing as the eighth-ranked overall defense was good for the 2020 Indianapolis Colts, but not great. DeForest Buckner believes the Colts defense can achieve greatness in 2021 in the form of being the top unit in the league if it plays at its best on a consistent basis. “Last year, throughout the year, we played some great ball games,” Buckner said Tuesday, via Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star. “For me, looking back at [the] 2020 season, it’s consistency. For a point in time, we were the No. 1 defense in the league. And then we kind of fell off towards the end. That’s because there were certain games where we let off the gas pedal a little bit, or [there was a] miscommunication, or a missed tackle here and there. And for me, it’s just consistency. if we’re consistent from start to finish, I believe we could finish [as] the No. 1 defense in the league.”
