2020 NFL TEAM EFFICIENCY RATINGS

Regular season totals, through Week 1

Revised as of 9/15/2020

These are the Football Outsiders team efficiency ratings for 2020, 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 based on strength of opponent as well as to consider all fumbles, kept or lost, as equal value. (Opponent adjustments are not yet included because it is early in the season; they will begin after Week 4.) SPECIAL TEAMS DVOA is adjusted for type of stadium (warm, cold, dome, Denver) and week of season.

DAVE combines our preseason forecast with games played so far to get a more accurate projection of how teams will play the rest of the season. DAVE is currently 93% preseason forecast and 7% actual performance.

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