2013 NFL Week 13 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential


Week 13 of the 2013 NFL season is now behind and it’s time again to look at the adjusted net yards per passing attempt differential stats heading into Week 14.

The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped .03 points this past week in their loss to the Baltimore Ravens and they currently remain ranked 15th overall and behind both the Tennessee Titans and the San Diego Chargers. As I have noted for several weeks now, according to this stat, the Steelers have been an extremely average team for most of the season. While the offense is moving in the right direction, mostly due to the decrease in sacks and interceptions, the defense really hasn’t budged.

The Steelers best shot at making the playoff revolves around them winning their final four games, but when you watch the tape and look at this stat, there’s no reason to believe that they will. Even going 3-1 will be tough when you consider that they still have to play the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers. The Packers differential number of -.41 is deceiving because they have been without the services of quarterback Aaron Rodgers for several weeks.

Thankfully, the Ravens schedule to close out the season is not a favorable one and the same goes for the Titans and the Chargers.

This week, the Steelers play the Miami Dolphins, a team that has played well against the pass. In order for the Steelers to win this game, their defense must have a big game. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill leads the league in sacks taken this season and he’s thrown 13 interceptions to boot. On the flip side, the Steelers offense will have their hands full in keeping quarterback Ben Roethlisberger upright, especially if left tackle Kelvin Beachum is unable to play.

As for the rest of the league, it will be surprising if any of the top nine ranked teams miss the playoffs. Due to their hot start, the Kansas City Chiefs also seem playoff bound, even though they have been moving in the wrong direction over the course of the last few weeks. The same goes for the Indianapolis Colts, who haven’t been the same since they lost wide receiver Reggie Wayne. There’s definitely something to be said about starting a season fast.
