2012 NFL Week 15 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

The season is coming to an end soon and Week 15 is now in the books. 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 Seattle Seahawks and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson continue to amaze as they enter week 16 ranked second overall in differential. Their offensive and defensive ANY/A numbers are that of a quality playoff team. Their upcoming Sunday night game against the San Francisco 49ers should be a good one and it is one that they have to win in order to keep control of their Wild Card spot.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals enter their key game against each other this coming Sunday with very similar numbers. The Steelers defensive ANY/A number of course has slipped the last few weeks thanks in part to the injuries in the secondary. Their offensive ANY/A number ticked back up this past week and hopefully will continue to do so on Sunday. Like the Seahawks/49ers game, this one figures to be very entertaining.

The Baltimore Ravens have become a very average team on both sides of the ball. You can understand the defensive slide due to injuries, but their offense really is struggling right now. They are not going in the right direction heading into the playoffs.

The Indianapolis Colts continue to be a team that is powered by the play of a rookie quarterback. Assuming they make the playoffs, they are a prime candidate to be one and done depending on who they play if their defense does not improve, as that will be a lot of pressure on the offense to win a shootout. Should they draw the Ravens, however, I like their chances to make it to the next round.

The New York Giants might not make the playoffs. They need to play some defense and luckily they get the struggling Ravens this week.
