Aikman Efficiency Ratings

12

AIKMAN RATINGS

Thru Week 10

For the third straight week, the Panthers sit atop the Aikman Combined Ratings, maintaining their hold on the top spot with an impressive win at San Francisco.

Carolina is also closing on the top-ranked Chiefs, idle last week, in the Aikman Defense Ratings.  With Kansas City facing Denver, still number one in Aikman Offense, there could be a swing in Week 11 (although the Panthers also have a tough test in the Patriots).

The offense of the Colts is this week’s example of how the NFL’s yards-only formula can reward units that actually don’t perform very well.

Indianapolis actually outgained St. Louis, 406-372, while turning the ball over five times in an atypical performance in a 38-8 loss.

The Colts, usually efficient, came into the game ranking 3rd in the Aikman Offense Ratings while standing just 19th in the NFL’s yards-only rankings.  Their substandard effort against St. Louis saw them drop to 13th in Aikman Offense – even as they were perversely rewarded by the NFL system with a rise of six spots to 13th.

Even after another defeat, with their opponents putting 27 points on the board, the Texans are proclaimed by the NFL as having the “number one” defense in the league.

The ranking as 20th in the Aikman Defense Ratings seems more reflective of Houston’s defensive play this season.  The Texans only have created eight turnovers (tied for 27th) and have allowed 5.23 points per opponent trip to the red zone (29th).

Conversely, the defense has carried the Chiefs to a 9-0 record this season.  The Aikman Defense Ratings reflect that with Kansas City atop the listing.  Most accounts proclaim the lack of points allowed by Kansas City, but the “official” yards-only ranking only has the Chiefs in 10th place.
