Aikman Efficiency Ratings

16
AIKMAN RATINGS
Thru Week 10

 
 
With an 8-1 record, and the only loss by a single point, the Cowboys have the best record in the NFL and they also sit atop the Aikman Combined Ratings, as compiled by STATS, for a second consecutive week.
 
We would note that their rating of 163.6 is low for a league leader, as that number fell 3.0 points while they were defeating Pittsburgh.  However, the teams close to them near the top also dropped off slightly.
 
The Aikman Combined crown is still very much up for grabs as seven teams are within 5.0 points of Dallas.  And four of those teams (Titans, Saints, Cardinals and Bills) do not have a record better than .500.
 
In most years, the Aikman Combined Ratings tend to correspond with won-loss records, but that has not necessarily been the case in 2016, which tends to indicate a year of exceptional parity.  The Chiefs (7-2), Giants (6-3) and Texans (6-3) are teams with winning records that have not known success in the Aikman Combined so far.
 
The Cowboys stayed steady at 96.6 in Aikman Offense, and that was enough to regain first place in that rating as the Saints fell off while losing to Denver.
 
Meanwhile, the Ravens have moved into first place past Arizona in Aikman Defense and pushed across the 80-point mark.  Baltimore also ranks first in the NFL’s yards-only method of ranking defenses.
