Pass Defense when leading


The new ESPN Stats & Info Blog has this to say about our beloved pass defense:

Atlanta's pass defense has done a much better job of protecting leads in 2010. Last year when leading in games, the Falcons allowed 12 touchdown passes and had just two interceptions in 190 attempts. This season, Atlanta has five interceptions on 89 pass attempts when protecting a lead and has allowed only three touchdowns. When protecting the lead against three or more wide receiver sets, their opponents’ passer rating has dropped from 99.7 last season to 54.8 in 2010.

Now, I don't know what they are measuring exactly, but I'm counting nine allowed pass TDs while holding a lead in the last four games alone. Can anyone figure out what they're saying here?
