Aikman Efficiency Ratings

28
AIKMAN RATINGS

Through Week 12

Bolstered by an offense that is working at a record-setting pace, the Patriots have pulled into first place in the Aikman Combined Ratings, ending Houston’s three-week run at the top.

The Patriots have been clicking at an incredible 110.2 pace for the last four weeks while averaging 47.5 points per game.  Other areas of remarkable performance for New England’s offense that have boosted their Aikman Offense number to 101.7 include having only one turnover, converting 64.7% of third down opportunities and averaging 8.61 yards per pass play.

The Patriots, who have opened up a huge lead of 11.7 points over the second-place Texans, are seeking to break their own Aikman Offense record (since 1995) of 99.0 in 1997.

On defense, the NFL, which only considers yards allowed, has New England in 27th place, while the Aikman Defense Ratings place them 13th.  We would argue that a more intuitive rating for the totality of New England’s defensive play so far is indeed in the middle of the pack and not near the bottom.

In Aikman Defense, the Bears continue to steam along in first with a 7.7-point lead over the Cardinals.  They have been in first since Week 3 and, at 88.1, are seeking to become just the fourth defense in Aikman history to top the 90.0 mark.

The 49ers are known as a defensive team, but in the Aikmans they stand fourth on both sides of the ball.  This combined success has pushed them into second in the Aikman Combined.
