2012 NFL Week 12 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential


Week 12 of the 2012 season is behind us and the playoff picture, especially in the AFC, is really in plain view right now with 5 weeks remaining in the season. Below are the 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 differential slipped this again this week because of the absence of one Ben Roethlisberger. This was almost guaranteed to happen. Their defensive ANY/A number remains strong, however, and it needs to stay that way. The Steelers of course play the Baltimore Ravens again this week and to beat them it will take a near perfect game on both sides of the football regardless of who winds up playing quarterback.

The Cincinatti Bengals are really playing good football right now and currently have the 4th best differential in the AFC heading into their game against the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers can\’t afford to lose another game, so this sets up for an interesting matchup.

The Indianapolis Colts are defying the odds in the differential stat. Their defense is playing awful yet they continue to win games. A win against the Detroit Lions on Sunday and I think you can pencil them into one of the Wild Card spots. Should they make it, I think they will be one and done in the Wild Card round regardless of who they play.

The Chicago Bears are horrible on offense and are sticking around only because of their defense.

The Seattle Seahawks is another team that is a bit of a head scratcher. They face the Bears this week and something has to give here.

11 of the 12 teams that make the playoffs should finish with a positive differential number. If the Colts stumble down the stretch it could be 12 of 12.
