Week 13 DVOA Ratings

Hey, remember last week when the Patriots almost lost to Philadelphia, and it didn't affect DVOA? Yeah, it didn't quite work that way this week. Plus: Jacksonville is so inconsistent that their inconsistency has no consistency, and check out the new Premium matchup view.

Week 12 DVOA Ratings

Wondering how much Sunday night's surprising near-loss to the Eagles dropped New England's DVOA rating? Would you believe the answer is "not much at all?" The top eight teams all stay basically the same, while good things are happening in Minnesota and Ohio.

Week 9 DVOA Ratings

The Pats and Colts play the game that DVOA expected, while the Steelers and Cowboys score prime time blowouts to give us a dramatically dominant top four. Actually, it is a dominant four-and-a-half, because the Titans defense is climbing into rarefied air.

Week 8 DVOA Ratings

The Patriots have officially slipped the bonds of reality, the first team ever to have a DVOA over 70% later than Week 5. The Colts are the best team of the past dozen years other than the Patriots. Maybe the hype is warranted this time? Plus: San Diego returns to the top five and Tennessee's defense widens its lead.

Week 5 DVOA Ratings

The historic dominance of the Colts and Patriots continues, but two 53-yard field goals can't keep the Cowboys from falling off the pace -- and into fourth place behind Pittsburgh.

Week 4 DVOA Ratings

New England blows away the league with the greatest start of the DVOA Era. Dallas and Indianapolis are right behind, and... wait... is that Arizona in the top ten? Oh, will the wonders of DVOA ever cease?
