2017 TEAM EFFICIENCY RATINGS

Regular season totals, through Week 2

Revised as of 9/19/2017

These are the Football Outsiders team efficiency ratings for 2017, measured by our proprietary Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) system that breaks down every single NFL play and compares a team's performance to a league baseline based on situation in order to determine value over average. (Explained further here.)

OFFENSE and DEFENSE DVOA are adjusted to consider all fumbles, kept or lost, as equal value. No opponent adjustments are included in DVOA until after Week 4 of the NFL season. SPECIAL TEAMS DVOA is adjusted for type of stadium (warm, cold, dome, Denver) and week of season.

DAVE is a formula which combines our preseason projection with current DVOA to get a more accurate forecast of how a team will play the rest of the season. Right now, the preseason projection makes up 80 percent of DAVE (90 percent for Tampa Bay and Miami).

As always, positive numbers represent more points so DEFENSE is better when it is NEGATIVE.
