Infographic: Five Teams Rank In Top-10 In Offense, Defense DVOA

Dec 13, 2017 12:30 PM

The NFL has five teams ranking in the top-10 in DVOA on both Offense and Defense after Week 14. In an indication of how much turnover there's been in parts of the NFL, none of those five teams (Rams, Eagles, Vikings, Saints and Chargers) made the playoffs in 2016.

The Chiefs, Cowboys, Steelers, Falcons and Patriots also rank in the top-10 on offense, while the Jaguars, Broncos, Panthers, Ravens and Cardinals rank in the top-10 on defense.

The Seahawks, who have consistently been one of the NFL's top teams in DVOA during the Russell Wilson era, are just outside the top-10 in both categories.

Nov 6, 2017 8:16 AM

Julius Thomas, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills knelt during the anthem before Sunday night's game between the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders.

The three players waited in the tunnel during the anthem before recent games. Adam Gase had established a team rule requiring players either to stand for the anthem or stay in the tunnel.

The players, however, told Gase they felt waiting in the tunnel was interfering with their game preparation. According to a source, Gase expressed his preference for standing during the anthem but respected their right to express themselves and relaxed the team rule.
