Aikman Efficiency Ratings

2013 AIKMAN RATINGS

After Week 1

 

The Aikman Ratings, conceived by Troy Aikman several years ago as a more accurate barometer of NFL offensive and defensive performance than the NFL’s official yards-only method, are back.

 

They use a balance of seven different categories to rank NFL units. Although higher or lower figures often occur with single-game ratings, over time the Aikman Ratings tend to cluster around a scale of 50 to 100 with a mean near 75.

 

After Week 1, the Aikman Combined Ratings are just an inverse of how much one team had an edge in both categories over their first opponent.  Therefore, the Chiefs sit atop the Aikman Combined after dominating the Jaguars the most in Week 1 – and the Jaguars are last.  Conversely the Cardinals and Rams, involved in the closest game, by Aikman Ratings measurement, are 16-17.

 

As usual, more teams with higher Aikman Game ratings won in Week 1 (13-3) than teams with higher yards totals (10-6).
