Aikman Efficiency Ratings

30
AIKMAN RATINGS
Thru Week 8

 
As they have all season, the Denver Broncos sit atop the Aikman Offensive Ratings through Week 8 of the NFL season.
 
As they have all season, except for Week 2, the Kansas City Chiefs stand 1st in the Aikman Defensive Ratings.
 
But, for the first time this season, neither the Broncos nor Chiefs are the top team in Aikman Combined.  That honor belongs to the Carolina Panthers, who displaced the Chiefs and moved into 1st after a dominating win over Tampa Bay last Thursday.
 
The Broncos and Chiefs are in a virtual tie for 2nd, 3.4 points behind Carolina.  The Seahawks are now 4th.
 
The Panthers, 6th in AIkman Offense and 3rd in Aikman Defense, are the only team in the top 6 on both sides of the ball.  The only other teams in the top 10 on both sides are the Saints (8th in Aikman Offense, 9th in Aikman Defense) and the 49ers (10th in Aikman Offense, 7th in Aikman Defense).

While the competition is tight at the top of the Aikman Combined, the Jaguars are the clear choice at the bottom, ranking 32nd in both Aikman Offense and Aikman Defense.  Their Aikman Combined Rating of 110.9 is more than 25 points below the 31st-ranked Vikings and puts them in line for the lowest score on record in Aikman history, which dates to 1995.  
 
The 2000 Cardinals, a 3-13 team that won two games by a single point, hold the current low mark for a full season at 120.2.  They are one of four teams, including the winless 2008 Lions, under 126.

It was another perfect week, the second of the season for the Aikman Game Ratings, meaning teams with a higher Game Rating went 13-0 in actually winning on the field.  Teams with higher Aikman Game Ratings have won 86.7% of NFL games this season.  Teams that gain more yardage, and are rewarded in the NFL’s yards-only offense and defense rankings, have won just 63.3% of the time.
