AIKMAN RATINGS

Through Week 6

Resting on a bye in Week 6, the Chicago Bears still surged to the top of the Aikman Combined Ratings, building a lead of 6.2 points over the Texans, who faltered against Green Bay on Sunday night.

Houston falls out of the top spot in the Aikman Combined for the first time this year, landing in 2nd, just 0.2 ahead of the Patriots.

The Bears have built their lead with a defense that is now 8.8 points ahead of the second-place team, this week the Cardinals, and an offense that ranks 14th.

The NFL, using yards allowed as the lone factor, considers the 49ers to have the “top” defense.  The Aikman Ratings factor in seven different factors, and Chicago’s defense ranks 1st in fewest points allowed and in turnovers forced to key its domination.  The Bears have also been much tougher in the red zone, denying their opponents any points on four occasions, while San Francisco’s opponents have scored on all 12 of their trips to the red zone.

On offense, the Patriots are in 1st for the third consecutive week.

The NFL uses yards as its sole determination of ranking, yet it is interesting to note that teams that have gained more yards this year have won their games only 58.7% of the time.
