Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS thru Week 6

 

There is a shakeup atop the Aikman Combined Ratings compiled by STATS after Week 6, as the Chiefs relinquish their season-long position in first to the rising Eagles, who were in 2nd last week. 

 

Kansas City fell to 4th while losing to the Steelers, with the surprising Jaguars moving to 2nd.  Jacksonville lost to the Rams, but two of the biggest plays that led to the defeat occurred on special teams, which falls outside the range of Aikman Ratings measurement.

 

The Vikings jumped from 6th to 3rd in the Aikman Combined while defeating the Packers.

 

The Chiefs did retain their lead in Aikman Offense, a position they have held since Week 1. 

 

The idle Bills also continue to stand in 1st place in Aikman Defense.

One trend to note in 2017 is a decline in Aikman Offense ratings on a league-wide basis.  Originally designed where 75 would represent the average score on both sides of the ball, the Aikman Offense Ratings have moved steadily upwards in recent years.  On a league-wide basis they passed the 80 mark in 2013 and have stayed there since, reaching a high of 81.9 last year.

 

But in 2017, with over a third of the season complete, the NFL has an average Aikman Offense rating of 79.7, compared to 82.4 at this point last year.
