2012 NFL Week 16 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential


There is just one week left now in the 2012 regular season and here now 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 keep amazing with their beat down of the San Francisco 49ers Sunday night. Not only is rookie Russell Wilson putting up good numbers offensively, the Seahawks defense is also playing lights out as well. They should not have any problems with the St. Louis Rams this week at home and will hope for a 49ers loss so that they can claim the division.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are now eliminated thanks to their 13-10 loss Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals, who clinched a Wild Card spot with the win. While the Steelers posted a respectable ANY/A number on defense, it was still higher than last season. The offense also dipped this year as well in their ANY/A number and thus you have a team with a differential of under 1.0. The Bengals better hope that their offense improves drastically or they will be one and done in the playoffs.

The Washington Redskins can win the NFC East by beating the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night at home and the differential between the two teams suggest that they will.

The Indianapolis Colts will only go as far as Andrew Luck will take them and they better be ready to put up some points in the playoffs. Their ANY/A numbers on both sides of the ball suggest that they might have an early playoff exit.

The New York Giants, much like the Steelers, have become a very average team and they need a lot of help on Sunday. The kind of help that suggest they will be watching the playoffs at home just like the Steelers.

Can the Minnesota Vikings do the unthinkable and knock off the Green Bay Packers? If they do it will be because Adrian Peterson has a huge day, because they are not a team that can win a passing shootout type of game.

If things go like I expect they will go on Sunday there will only be one team with a negative differential that makes the playoffs. That team would be the Colts.
