Aikman Efficiency Ratings

05

AIKMAN RATINGS 

The Packers and Lions, the NFL’s two undefeated teams, sit atop the Aikman Combined Ratings after four weeks of the 2011 NFL season, and eight of the 11 3-1 teams are lined up behind them to conclude the top 10.

Troy Aikman designed the Aikman Ratings to measure the qualities of offense and defense that best lead to victories – and the Aikmans are certainly living up to that goal so far this year.

On the other hand, the NFL continues to “officially” measure offense and defense based exclusively on yards gained.  And right now the two teams with the best combined rankings for offense and defense are the 2-2 Cowboys (6 on offense, 4 on defense for a combined 10) with the equally 2-2 Steelers third at a combined total of 15.

One thing the Aikmans and the NFL rankings agree on is that the Patriots have the top offense. In Aikman Defense, the Ravens are on top after scoring three defensive touchdowns last week. 

The 4-0 Packers (10th in the Aikmans, 28th in the NFL) and the 3-1 49ers (2nd in the Aikmans, 17th in the NFL) are the top “Aikman” defenses at the moment in the sense that they rank the most spots higher in the current Aikmans than they do when measured just by yards.
