Passer Rating Differential

Final Statistics for the 2011 Season

About Passer Rating Differential. This indicator is nothing more than the difference between a team's Offensive Passer Rating and Defensive Passer Rating. We call it the "mother stat" of football analysis because it has an incredible Correlation to Victory: as CHFF Insiders know, 40 of 69 NFL champs since 1940 (58%) finished No. 1 or No. 2 in Passer Rating Differential, nearly the same number that finished No. 1 or No. 2 in scoring differential (Insiders can see the entire history of both indicators here). In fact, we would argue that you cannot truly analyze football without studying Passer Rating Differential. The Cold, Hard Football Facts have issued countless studies of the importance of Offensive Passer Rating, Defensive Passer Rating and Passer Rating Differential, each of them critical Quality Stats, including here on SportsIllustrated.com in the summer of 2011.
