2012 NFL Week 9 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

Week 9 of the 2012 season is now behind us and the picture is really becoming much more clearer now in regard to 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 remain in 7th overall in differential following their win over the New York Giants as their differential stat slowly grows in the right direction. The only three teams not currently ranked in the top 16 that I believe have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs are the Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers, and the New Orleans Saints, but it would have to be as a Wild Card and all three will need a bunch of help.

The Chicago Bears continue to live mostly off of their defense as their offensive ANY/A is the lowest of any of the top 16 teams. They do, however, sport the best defensive ANY/A number. The team with the worst defensive number in the top 16 is the New England Patriots. They are likely hoping that their newly acquired cornerback, Aqib Talib, can help on that side of the ball as they move into the second half of the season.
