I'm not talking about Bank's rankings, those are his thoughts. I am talking about the Offensive (O) and Defensive (D) ranking assigned to your team in the little bar at the top of your team site or better yet scroll half way down on the left and below NFC East standings is your teams stats. In this case Dallas is 4th in the Division (20th in the league) in yards allowed/game but 1st in points allowed. SI assigns the power ranking for D based on points and makes Dallas 7th in the league. For years the metric of a Defense has been yds/game. When did this change? Oddly, Skins are 2nd in the division (6th in the league) on D allowed yds/game and but 3rd in points allowed. All with an offense that cannot stay on the field and make first downs. I would think this would put more pressure on the Skins Defense Ok, now here is the kicker....Giants; 1st in the division (FIRST IN THE LEAGUE) on yards/game but 4th in the division (21ST IN THE LEAGUE) on points per game!!!?? I know points win games but the Giants are upside down in regards to the rest of the league regarding yards allowed and points? Any thoughts or answers? Special teams points? Offense allowed pick-6s?
