DVOA Week 6: Bills Come Back to Earth

DVOA Week 6: Bills Come Back to Earth

Why do you keep calling me bill?

Falcons are 2-3 and still the worst team in the league.


ryanedwards0101

The Eagles are really not doing them any favors with how they've played since week 1


SyphiliticMonk

We're 18th.


ryanedwards0101

Yeah losing 32-6 at home against the 18th ranked team will tank you lol


SyphiliticMonk

Oh I understand your original comment now. My bad.

Want to bet?

The defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now the top team in DAVE, combining their strong preseason projection with their current No. 4 rank in DVOA. The Bills are still our Super Bowl favorites, but the Baltimore Ravens have narrowly passed the Bills as our favorite for the AFC's No. 1 seed, 36.5% to 36.0%. The Bills have stronger Super Bowl chances than the Ravens because of their higher DAVE rating and because they have a better chance to finish with the No. 2 through No. 4 seeds given that the Ravens still face competition for the AFC North title while the Bills essentially have the AFC East sewn up. Can only one team in the AFC east ever be good at a time?

Jets and Patriots were both good once.

I'm honestly shocked we're the 20th ranked offense, it feels worse Granted I guess Ben at this point statistically isn't particularly bad and the run game is getting more efficient


SnowmanMat

That’s what happens when youre used to putting up 30 with Ben and co for 15 years, now youre just an averag-ish offense and it feels like shit because of it


nope96

We're 25th in yards per game and points per game, it's definitely below average


LifeSexyShaba-da-doo

Playing the bills is probably helping you. Also, the bengals have the 5th best defense.


dusters

Didn't realize they put half the chart behind a paywall now. Lame.


IWasRightOnce

It’s not actually a paywall, you do have to make a (free) account though.


LifeSexyShaba-da-doo

It's subscription-locked, not paywalled. The falcons, jets, and texans are the worst teams


Wrinkle_Tinkle

We have a higher DVOA than the chargers, suck it Staley. jk pls comeback I can’t stand Raheem’s soft ass coverages


Zoidberg22

Rams and Packers special teams ranks are bad for 5-1 teams.


TheUltimate721

> The good news is that the Chiefs climbed out of the bottom spot on defense! Not only are the Chiefs no longer a historically bad defense, they aren't even the worst defense of this season! That spot belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have given up 6.3 net yards per play (29th in the league) to one of the easiest schedules of opposing offenses (also 29th in the league) with only two turnovers. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

SHIP HAS BEEN RIGHTED, WE’RE BACK BABY

I really don't get why people like DVOA so much


MIBPJ

Because its one of the few stats that accounts for quality of opponent.


Dr__Flo__

It adjusts for opponent, which most other stats don't. It isn't very good early in the season, hence why it seems like every year there's one "historically" good or bad team to start. But later in the season, I think it tends to give more accurate assessments of team performance than other singular stats.


[deleted]

That's mainly the reason I don't really like it. It's really only valuable once the playoffs start coming around and we see the bigger picture. So many variables change from week to week.

When your team beats the good teams and loses to the bad teams, DVOA has a really hard time placing you. Excluding the 2019 run, DVOA seems to regularly place Tennessee much lower than where they finish the year.
