2015 NFL Week 9 Stats: Adjusted Net Yards Per Passing Attempt Differential

Week 9 of the 2015 NFL season wrapped up on Monday night and below are the league-wide ANY/A differential stats as we enter Week 10.

Currently, there are 14 teams in the league that own a positive differential number and the Pittsburgh Steelers are not one of them. While the Steelers offense was able to raise their offensive ANY/A in their Sunday win over the Oakland Raiders, their defensive ANY/A unfortunately went in the wrong direction. That’s probably not surprising to you if you saw the game as they gave up 6 explosive plays and 4 touchdown passes in that contest in addition to failing to register a sack.

Fortunately for the Steelers, they will play a Cleveland Browns defense this coming Sunday at Heinz Field that currently possesses a defensive ANY/A number that is even higher than their own so hopefully quarterback Landry Jones will be able to take advantage of that in what will be his second career start. The Steelers defense absolutely must start lowering their defensive ANY/A number moving forward.

The Cincinnati Bengals certainly don’t look like they should be worried about suffering their first loss of the season on Monday night when they play the Houston Texans¬†judging by the stats below and especially when you consider that they haven’t played since Thursday.

The most interesting game in Week 10 figures to be the Thursday night contest between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills with the slight edge going to the former. The Steelers are currently behind the Jets in the AFC Wild Card race while the Bills are currently the No. 8 team in the conference.

Consider these my power rankings heading into Week 10.
