Aikman Efficiency Ratings

27

With three games played, the Aikman Ratings are beginning to be a better reflection of relative strength as the short-term vagaries from a small schedule sample begin to even out.   

As a sign that the Aikmans usually track well with the teams with the best record, the top three teams in the Aikman Combined are the three remaining undefeated clubs, and four of the NFL’s five winless teams are in the bottom five.  

The surprising Lions and Bills have performed on nearly the same level as the more established Packers, Ravens and Patriots, so for now they appear to be for real.  Buffalo currently has the league’s top Aikman Offense, while Detroit tops Aikman Defense. 

The Raiders and Giants stand out as team’s that have performed more efficiently on offense in the first three weeks than their NFL ranking, which is strictly determined by yards gained only, would indicate.  Both are more than 10 spots higher in the rankings. 

On defense, the Ravens, Redskins, Giants and Packers are performing better than mere yards would indicate.
