2012 NFL Week 3 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential


Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season is now behind us and here are the final ANYPPAD (Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential) stats year to date. This stat is great for tracking teams success over the season and is a great measuring stick to show which teams might be headed for the post season and which teams might be staying at home.

If you want to get a better understanding of the stat, read here and here is the final regular season ANYPPAD stats from last year.

I always like to caution that it is really hard to read much into these stats until a good 4 or 5 games into the season for each team as you will see quite a bit of bouncing over the first four weeks. After that the true colors of the passing offense and defense start emerging and you can see how certain teams slightly get better or worse on offense and defense in relation to the passing game over the forthcoming weeks.

3 weeks in and we are still seeing great jumps in the DIFF stat, but that will start calming down now.

As far as the Pittsburgh Steelers go, despite their 1-2 record, they have jumped up to 13th overall in ANYPPAD and at least now have a positive number. Of course the true stat is wins and losses, but as long as the quarterback play remains as it has been through the first three weeks, the Steelers will be in each and every game this season. The defense is bound to improve, even if it is slightly, so don\'t rule the black and gold out of anything just yet. The offense will have to carry this team this year, and that unit is off to a great start.

The Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans remain supreme and both of those teams will be there at the end baring significant injuries to key positions.
