2012 NFL Week 4 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential


Week 4 of the 2012 NFL season is now in the books and here are the final ANYPPAD (Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential) stats year to date. As i have mentioned previously, 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 caution at the beginning of the season that it is really hard to read much into these stats until each team has 4 or 5 games behind them and we are about at that point now. The drastic jumps up and down the rankings should start to subside soon.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts both had their bye weeks in week 4 and thus their numbers obviously remain unchanged from last week.

The Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons are obviously for real and baring significant injuries they both should stay near the top for the rest of the season as both of their offenses and defenses are playing really well and the numbers support it. The Texans get the New York Jets next Monday night and I feel that the they could very well be close to the 5.00 differential number after that game, which is an unreal number in this stat. The Chicago Bears made a huge jump this week thanks in part to the 5 interceptions that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw Monday night. I expect the Bears differential number will come back to earth over the course of the next few weeks. The Arizona Cardinals are 4-0 thus far and their offensive numbers really do not support that record. I am not convinced that they are the real deal yet and they let Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill throw for 400 yards against them this past weekend.

The Steelers have a huge test this week against the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that relies heavily on their defense, while the Steelers rely heavily on their offense.
