Ratings courtesy of STATS, Inc.

The Aikman Efficiency Ratings measure offensive and defensive performance using a combination of seven key statistics identified by Troy Aikman, and then measured against league norms (and extremes) established over the last 10 years. An offense or defense performing exactly at league norms in all categories will achieve a score of 75.

It will take a truly exceptional unit to score more than 90 during an entire season on either the offensive or defensive scale. In 2003, AER scores ranged on offense from 93.95 (Kansas City) to 63.55 (New York Giants) and on defense from 86.87 (New England) to 62.60 (San Diego).

The seven categories measured are:

* Adjusted Points (20 percent) -- Total Points Scored or Allowed minus Points on Returns and Safeties.
* Turnovers (20 percent).
* Red Zone Efficiency (20 percent) -- Measured by Percent of Possible Points (figured by taking the number of Red Zone Chances times 7, then dividing it by the number of Points Actually Scored (defined as TDs times 7 plus FGs times 3).
* Yards Per Play -- Divided into Yards Per Rush (10 percent of total) and Yards Per Pass Play (10 percent of total). Yards Per Pass Play includes yards on plays involving sacks.
* First Down Achievement -- Divided into Total First Downs (10 percent of total) and 3rd Down Conversion Percentage (10 percent of total).

I wonder if the league itself will ever realize that total yards only tell part of the story?

The Pats are the most balanced team as far as offense/defense goes. But the Colts Lead in Offense (no surprise) and are better than average Defense. I can live with that.

GO COLTS!

Thes nice fact is, that while the Patriots have stayed about level since we played KC, the Colts have gotten better every week. (I haven't compared this weeks numbers.) It will be good to have Bob Sanders back. Hope we can have him back for the playoffs. Our D plays better with him in there.

It's interesting that there are only 2 NFC teams in the top 10 & the bottom 5 is all NFC.

The rankings are that much lower even considering they primarly play against fellow weak NFC teams.

The Pats are just plain solid. I think the Colts could beat the Steelers in a high-scoring game, just hope the offense does good in January. I don't know about the Pats: it will be an epic battle as always
