Aikman Efficiency Ratings

16

AIKMAN RATINGS WITH COMMENTARY

Week 1, 2015

 

The Aikman Ratings are back- although in Week 1 all we know for sure is that in Week 1, the Jets had the most dominant victory.  It will take a couple of weeks for this measurement of seven key categories of offensive and defensive performance to shake out.

 

We would note, as you can see by comparing the Aikman Combined Ratings, the team with the higher Aikman Game Rating (same thing in Week 1) won 14 of 16 Week 1 games, while the teams that gained more yards went 10-6. 

 

The Steelers enter Week 2 with the “number two” offense in the NFL as the League compiles it by merely measuring total yards gained.  The team that beat them, New England, is in the middle of the pack at 12.  The turnover-free, red zone-efficient Patriots won the game and produced a higher game rating and ranks higher in the Aikman Combined.

 

The Packers against the Bears and the Chiefs against the Texans were other teams that won their games significantly while being substantially outgained.  Their actual dominance in the score and other key factors is reflected with higher Aikman Combined/Aikman Game Rating scores.
