Neat stat about the 49ers defense

A total of 9 missed games from that starting defense dating back to the beginning of 2011. And for those of you who didn't know, they have the exact same starting defense.
By contrast, Pats have 8 this season:
(4 from Gregory, 2 from Hightower, 2 from Jones)
That number can be higher if you want to include Dennard and Chung (who was the starter).

they definitely do a good job of staying healthy, and im sure they have a great medical staff there as well. the pats have been pretty good at this as well besides dowling of course and chung.
