2012 NFL Week 6 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

Week 6 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. 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 as it is based around the passing offense and passing defense of all 32 teams.

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.

The Green Bay Packers, and more specifically quarterback Aaron Rodgers, put a hurting on the Houston Texans and their gaudy ANYPPAD stat Sunday night. Throwing for 6 touchdowns and over 300 yards will do that. Rodgers is a great quarterback and perhaps the best that the Texans will see this year so I fully expect the Texans to start inching their number back up over the next coming weeks.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have the third best offensive ANYPPA number, but are giving back away on defense as reflected by their 6.36 defensive number. Through the first 6 weeks of the season there are 16 teams with positive differential numbers.

Both the Texans and the Baltimore Ravens are tied in differential heading into their week 7 match-up, but it should be noted that the Ravens lost both Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb for the season this past weekend. While this stat does not reflect rushing yardage at all, the Ravens are in for a tough game unless quarterback Joe Flacco has a perfect day. The Texans are currently a 6.5 favorite at home and can move the ball on the ground and through the air.

I will have more related to this stat later on in the week from a historical perspective.
