2012 NFL Week 8 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

Roughly half of the 2012 season is now behind us as week 8 is now in the books. 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 Pittsburgh Steelers remain in 7th overall in differential following their win over the Washington Redskins and they boast the 4th best offensive ANY/A stat right now behind only the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers defensive number still needs improvement and the only way that comes is if they start getting some sacks or turnovers. This of course has plagued this defense going on a year and a half now.

I think it is safe to say now that the top 7 of the top 8 teams will make the playoffs. The Steelers really remain a Wild Card based on their record right now, but you really have to like their chances the way the offense is clicking right now. Can they catch the Baltimore Ravens?

The game against the Giants should be a great one as these two teams are basically tied in the differential number with the Giants getting the slight edge on decimal points. If they Steelers are going to win this game they will need some splash plays on defense. The bottom 8 ranked teams will not be making the playoffs if you trust history and this this number at this point of the season.
