Aikman Efficiency Ratings

27
AIKMAN RATINGS
Thru Week 16

 
 
With one week remaining in the 2016 season, we have a new leader in the Aikman Combined Ratings as compiled by STATS.  The Patriots have moved 1.3 points ahead of the NFL’s other 13-2 team, the Cowboys.  Dallas led by 0.7 after Week 15, but that was before the Patriots turned in a dominant defensive performance against the Jets that boosted them from 6th to 3rd in Aikman Defense and put them atop the Aikman Combined.
 
Should the Patriots finish the year in 1st, it would be New England’s first season championship in the Aikman Combined since 2012.  The Patriots are in the top five in both offense and defense, while no other team sits in the top 10 in both.
 
The Falcons continue atop Aikman Offense for the third straight week, but we have a new leader in Aikman Defense.  The Giants, rising from 8th place during the course of the last five weeks, have opened up a 2.0-point advantage over the Ravens, whose four-week run is over.
 
We would note that the Steelers have been making a big run in the Aikman Combined Ratings in addition to winning six straight games.  Pittsburgh was in 11th place in the Aikman Combined at the season’s mid-point and has now risen to 4th.
