Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS

Through Week 4

Looking to be wire-to-wire winners, the Houston Texans remain atop the Aikman Combined Ratings for the fourth consecutive week.  The Texans are 4th in Offense and 2nd in Defense for a solid 178.3 Combined number.  

Atlanta’s close-call win over the Panthers cost them second place as the Patriots, Bears and Ravens all edged ahead of Atlanta.  The NFL’s other undefeated team, the Cardinals, who have three of their wins by three points or less, are 8th.

The Aikman Combined Rankings often roughly follow the won-loss record of teams.  Although the Cardinals are not in the top three, it should be noted that their combined offense-defense (31+17=48) by the NFL method of ranking, total yards only, would put them 26th.

With their big comeback against the Bills, and an Aikman Game Rating of 116.7, the Patriots have jumped into 1st in Aikman Offense, knocking off the Ravens who have fallen to 5th.

The NFL calls Chicago’s defense the 11th best in the league, based strictly on yards allowed, but the 3-1 Bears sit atop the Aikman Defense Rankings.  The Bears lead the league in takeaways and are 5th in points allowed per red-zone possession.  It is Chicago’s second straight week in first place in Aikman Defense.
