2011 NFL Team Defense Passing Efficiency Rankings- Week 4
New York Jets Salary Cap Page

NFL Team Passing Efficiency- Week 4

These are some other stats that I have kept for certain teams in the league in the past. There was a period last year where I was posting these for the Jets on a per game basis, but it got a bit time consuming to do.
,br /> These stats measure just how much better or worse than average a defense has been against their own schedule.

The Jets passing defense has been excellent thus far this season. Teams are avoiding the pass, throwing 14% less than normal against the Jets. The team ranks first in touchdowns allowed, third in yards allowed and fourth in 20 plus yard plays allowed. The stat that surprised me most was sacks, where the Jets rank 4th. For whatever reason I feel as if the Jets opponents have too long to throw most of the time, but that does not seem to have been the case this year. The Jets opponents have allowed 26 sacks in 16 games, with 9 of them being attributed to the four games against the Jets. So basically if you drop back you can expect to find yourself eating the football 60% more times than normal. On a per attempt basis it is even more impressive with 85% more sacks than normal being attributed to the Jets.

Where are the weak areas? I often take Eric Smith and Jim Leonhard to task and I think the stats also prove that being correct. The Jets Safeties are either not making the tackle to save the huge play or are getting beaten to allow the play. The Jets have allowed 3 plays longer than 40 yards this season. That is average for their schedule and below average on an attempt adjusted basis. The Jets certainly are not awful in this regard but it's the one weakness they have had thus far in their pass defense and is always going to give teams some hope to take chances. Just to bring the other AFC squads into this, Miami is the worst team in the NFL in giving up big plays so I guess the talk of their corners being great was a bit overblown. They have allowed 6 of their opponents 9 40+ yard plays. That's obscene. Much like their offense the Pats defense gives up limited 40+ yard plays, but is worst in the NFL at giving up the 20 yard pass plays. The Bills live off the turnover and are below average in the other categories
