Aikman Efficiency Ratings

17

AIKMAN RATINGS

Through Week 2

Conventional wisdom has the Broncos and Seahawks as the dominant teams in the NFL through Week 2 – and both do well in this week’s edition of the Aikman Ratings.  Still, it is the Chiefs who sit atop the Aikman Combined Ratings after wins over Jacksonville and Dallas. 

The Broncos do have the top offense and the Seahawks stand first on defense.

The Buccaneers, losers twice in the final seconds, have the best Aikman Combined of the 0-2 teams, while New England is the least impressive of the 2-0 clubs.  Those two teams meet Sunday in Foxborough.

It should be remembered that after just two weeks, the ratings are also a significant reflection of a team’s competition.  Still, the 49ers are a surprise at 28th after games with the Packers and Seahawks.
