    NFL Football Stats - NFL Team Opponent Yards per Game on TeamRankings.com

    Granted they have played just 2 games at home and 4 games away,it is still a big gap between Home and Away if you go by total yards allowed per game

    They are ranked 7th in Total defense in terms of total yardage on average at home and ranked a putrid 26th in away games

    Makes you wonder why the defense is so much worse away than home.....all games are still played on a 100 yard football field,and we pretty much have the same players in H & A games....right?

    Eh, I'm going with way too small of a sample. Peyton killed them and Kolb kills the average.

    meanwhile...the pats defense held manning in check until the offense started turning it over.

    This is the problem with using a sample size of two.

    I guess 21 against peyton really isn't that bad when you think about it. This rankings is based on yardage(which I hate) he threw something like 300+. Kolb threw like 140 something if I remember correctly.

    if it stays like this 3-4 more home games..then home field advantage will be imperative..but i believe they are too far behind at this point

    Not too far behind at all, my friend.

    The Steelers will handle Baltimore at least once for sure, you can pretty much take that one to the bank. We'll see how the Raven defense deals with the loss of Lewis and Webb, all while still having Suggs out for at least a few more games.

    In the meantime, there isn't any reason why we can't head into the bye with a 5-3 record; which is the same that we had last year.

    We may not be able to get the #1, but we are still right in the thick of #2 for sure.

    The first step is to get into the bye at 5-3, then we'll go from there.

    Probably because, as is universally recognised, the noise at the Razor is so intense that the opposition offense crumbles ;)

    In all seriousness id imagine most teams have a better defense at home than on the road, the gap of course is too big between home and away but im sure that it will even itself a little more over the course of the next 10 games.

    hopefully the trend continues on Sunday. However small the sample size.

    What pleasently surprises me though is that after 6 games there are only 4 road games left, of which two are in the division and one in (neutral) London. NICE!!!

    So, you are saying that once we play a few more home games the D will be ranked maybe 20th at home....:bricks:


    I certainly hope the anomaly is in the sample size of 4.:rolleyes:

    In addition to the small sample size, it's also worth noting the defense has gone against two teams which play significantly better at home vs. the road.

    Chart: Home-road splits since 2002

    Over the past 10 years, the Ravens have the biggest difference between win percentage at home vs. the road. The Seahawks are 3rd.

    To expand on this further, Joe Flacco has a 106.6 rating at home and 62.4 on the road. That's a small sample size as well, but last year the split was 84 at home vs. 78.2 on the road, and in 2010 it was 104.4 at home and 84.7 on the road.

    Russell Wilson's best game came against our D, but he also put up solid performances at home against the Cowboys and the Packers (112.7, 99.3) and has not thrown an interception at home compared to his road rating of 60.3 and 6 INTs thrown.

    So I'm not so sure I'd conclude the defense plays worse on the road, as it may have more to do with certain offenses playing significantly better when they are at home.

    Sample size. Next...

    (edit: I see others said the same thing, but it is small enough to make the analysis meaningless.)
