Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS

Through Week 5

 

The Chiefs have edged ahead of the Broncos in the Aikman Combined Ratings through Week 5 as the two AFC West powers continue unbeaten. 

 

The Broncos offense, off another 50-point effort, continues at a record pace in the AIkman Offense Ratings, but Denver’s sub-standard defense (23rd in the Aikman Defense Ratings, 29th as the NFL tracks only yards) prevents them from dominating.

 

The NFL’s yards only method continues to rank the defense of the 2-3 Texans as the NFL’s “best”, while most observers would track the Chiefs as having performed more dominantly.  Ranked 7th in NFL yards, Kansas City continues to rank 1st in the Aikmans on defense as it has from the first week of the season.

We note that even as the offenses and defenses continued to rise and fall in the NFL’s official yards only ranking in Week 5, teams that gained more yards were only 5-9 in Week 5.
