Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS

Thru Week 9

 

The New York Jets are the darlings of the 2015 Aikman Ratings.

 

After their Week 9 victory over the Jaguars to boost their record to 5-3, the Jets moved past the undefeated Patriots to regain first in the Aikman Combined Ratings.  Gang Green also regained the top spot in Aikman Defense after the Broncos spent two weeks in the top spot.

 

New England remains atop Aikman Offense for the seventh straight week and with a lead of 7.1 points over the Cardinals are likely to do so for the foreseeable future.

 

The Aikman Combined Ratings often follow overall NFL won-loss records with the surge of the Jets to the top spot being something of an outlier.  The NFL’s three 8-0 teams are lined up behind New York in three of the next four spots.

 

The Jets benefit in the Aikman Combined by a strong 4th-place ranking in Aikman Offense (the NFL’s yards-only ranking has New York 11th in offense).  While the Patriots have the NFL’s dominant Aikman Offense, New England is only 11th in Aikman Defense.

 

In the Aikman formula, the Jets are benefiting from strong play in the red zone, which counts for 10% of the Aikman points.  Gang Green leads the NFL on both sides of the ball, averaging 5.89 points per red-zone appearance while allowing just 3.70 points each time their foes get inside the 20-yard line.
