Aikman Efficiency Ratings

AIKMAN RATINGS

Week 6

The Tennessee Titans, with a big win over Jacksonville, move to the top of the Aikman Combined Ratings after Week 6.

They are the fourth team to take the top spot this year, displacing the Chargers who fell to 4th after losing at St. Louis. The top four teams in the Aikman Combined (Titans, Steelers, Jets and Chargers) are all from the AFC.

Usually the Aikman Combined Ratings bear a distinct correlation to won-loss record, but that is not the case in the NFC North at the moment.

What appeared to be a strong division at the beginning of the season does not have a team ranked higher than 11th after Week 6.

Team W-L Aikman Combined Rank

Packers 3-3 11th (154.8)

Vikings 2-3 16th (149.6)

Lions 1-5 19th (147.7)

Bears 4-2 27th (141.7)

With a big game against Kansas City (including a week-high Aikman Game Rating of 114.5), the Texans move into 1st in the Aikman Offense Ratings through Week 6. Their 93.7 mark is nearly four points better than the Colts who are in 2nd.

Most of the teams that rank high in yards also rank high in the Aikman Offense Ratings this year, but one exception is the Chargers. San Diego stands 1st in the NFL in yards gained, but only 11th in Aikman Offense. The Chargers are hurt by lower than average performance in the red zone and in turnovers.

On the other hand, the Jets who have the fewest turnovers in the NFL, get a boost in the Aikman Offense. Gang Green is 5th in Aikman Offense versus 17th when only yards gained are measured.

The Steelers at 89.9 sit atop the Aikman Defense Ratings for the 4th time in five weeks. The Titans, at 87.9, moved from 7th to 2nd after a stifling Monday night performance against the Jaguars.

These two clubs have opened up a bit of an advantage over the rest of the competition with five teams bunched between 82.8 and 81.0.
