Aikman Efficiency Ratings

09

Week 13 

All three leaders remained the same in the Aikman Efficiency Ratings after Week 13.

With their big wins in division showdowns, the Patriots and Steelers widened the leads each first assumed in Week 12 in the Aikman Offense and Aikman Defense Ratings respectively.  

The Steelers also remain in 1st in the Aikman Combined.  The Giants and Packers have moved ahead of the Falcons who slipped from 2nd to 4th.

While there can be no denying that the Patriots are one of the NFL’s powers at the moment, the Aikman Combined ratings represent a team’s totals throughout the season, including New England’s slow start.

New England has moved to 6th in the Aikman Combined, considerable progress from just four weeks ago.  The Patriots were 20th after Week 9.

If you were to add the NFL’s offense (13) and defense (31) rankings, that combined total of 44 would puts New England in 25th place.

It should be noted that the NFL’s “yards only” measurement still ranks the Patriots, the league’s highest-scoring team, as only the #13 offense in the league. 

The Aikman Ratings also value New England’s defense more than the NFL’s “yards only” rankings. Even after holding the Jets to just a field goal, the NFL would still call New England as the 31st-ranked defense.  They fare somewhat better in the Aikmans with a ranking of 27th.
