2013 NFL Week 14 Stats – Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

Week 14 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 15.

Despite losing to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers actually had a nice jump of .29 as far as their differential went this week. What does that mean? Well, you can really thank the offense as that has been the side of the football that has made the most improvement over the course of the last several weeks. The team is rarely turning the football over and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is throwing touchdowns now inside the red zone.

The Steelers defense really has been the Achilles’ heel of this team as they have been consistently inconsistent. How bad were they on Sunday? Try this on for size. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was 8-of-10 with 3 passing touchdowns inside the Steelers red zone on Sunday and that was just the second time in the last five seasons that that feat has been accomplished against a Steelers defense. This is Tannehill that we are talking about here, not Peyton Manning.

As for the rest of the league, it’s pretty clear who the favorites to win it all are. Several weeks ago I told you to watch out for the Philadelphia Eagles and they haven’t let me down.

As for the Baltimore Ravens, they are currently inside the playoff bubble, but their differential continues to drop. They have the Detroit Lions, New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals left on their schedule and it wouldn’t surprise me if they lost all there of those games. At the very least, I bet they lose two of them.

As for the Bengals, they have slowly been improving and the Steelers will certainly have a tough time beating them Sunday night at Heinz Field.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Is there any reason to believe we will keep Haley? The offense has improved some, but is it enough?
