Aikman Efficiency Ratings

24

AIKMAN RATINGS Thru Week 7

There are times when the Aikman Ratings reveal expected teams at the top – and sometimes there are surprises.  This is one of those latter times as the 4-3 Jaguars have emerged in first place in the Aikman Combined Ratings through Week 7.

On the strength of a defense that also advanced from 2nd place to 1st this week, the Jaguars now sit ahead of four NFC teams, while replacing the Eagles in the lead.

It should be noted that with a combined ranking of 16 in the NFL’s yards-only method, the Jaguars are tied for the second-best mark in the NFL.  And they are highly ranked in most other statistical-based ratings systems. 

The Jacksonville defense, after shutting out the Colts, leads the NFL in fewest points allowed.  The Jaguars are also 1st in fewest yards allowed per pass play and takeaways per game.  Offensively, the Jaguars are 8th in Aikman Offense (10th in the NFL rankings).
