Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS COMMENTARY

Thru Week 13

 

Still plagued by a struggling defense, the unbeaten Packers have fallen to fourth in the latest Aikman Combined Ratings.  Through 13 weeks of the NFL season, it is the defensive-oriented Texans, Ravens and 49ers who claim the top three spots.  Green Bay’s defense does rank a bit better in Aikman Defense (22nd) than it does in the NFL’s yards-only measurement, where it is 31st.

- - -

The Packers do continue to sit atop the Aikman Offense Ratings, but the red-hot Saints have pulled to within 0.5 points.  Like the Packers, the Saints have defensive issues, ranking 31st in the Aikmans.

- - -

The three teams cited above continue to battle for the Aikman Defense lead, with the 49ers in first after their shutout of St. Louis, just 0.3 ahead of the Ravens.

- - -

The Dolphins have made remarkable strides in recent weeks, moving up to 14th of the Aikman Combined.  The Panthers are the other team with a losing record to rank in the top half, moving to 16th after beating Tampa Bay.

- - -

Teams with higher Aikman Game Ratings were 15-1 this week, with the lone loss being suffered by the Vikings (whose AGR of 77.9 was better than Denver’s 74.0).

That was one of six games, though, where the team with more yards gained lost.  Minnesota helped its NFL yards-only rankings by outgaining the Broncos, 489 to 336, but still lost. 

Teams that were outgained in yards, but still won easily with higher Aikman Game Ratings included the Saints over the Lions and Patriots over the Colts.
