Aikman Efficiency Ratings

27

AIKMAN RATINGS

Week 7

The leaders remained the same in all three categories in the Aikman Ratings after Week 7 action Houston on Offense, Pittsburgh on Defense and Tennessee in the Aikman Combined.

The Texans maintained 1st place by 3.8 points over the Colts in the Aikman Offense as both teams were on bye.

There is quite a gap after the first two teams and then a bunch of clubs and it was in this bunch that the Chiefs were able to vault from 14th to 3rd after a big day against the Jaguars.

The Steelers are atop the Aikman Defense for the fifth time in six weeks and the third week in a row, although the Titans whittled the advantage down slightly. The Seahawks have moved to 3rd from 6th.

The Titans, 8th in Aikman Offense and 2nd in Aikman Defense, lead the Aikman Combined as the top three (2nd Steelers, 3rd Jets) remains the same for the second straight week.

The Titans are a formidable 5-2 on the year and not a surprise to be near the top of any power ranking yet if one were to judge them strictly by the addition of their yards gained on offense (24th in the NFLs yards only ranking) and defense (14th in the NFLs yards allowed ranking) they would not fair so well. That sum of 38 for the Titans NFL offense and defense rankings is higher or worse than 20 teams.

On the other hand, the 2-5 Chargers lead the NFL in both yards gained and fewest yards allowed, while the disappointing Saints and Cowboys would also be in the top four in a system based just on adding the NFLs offense and defense rankings.

This is further support for our contention that the Aikman Ratings better reflect the kind of performance that actually wins NFL games. So far, teams with higher Aikman Game Ratings have won 78.8% of their games, while teams with more yards gained are only winning at a 58.7% clip.
