2021 Preseason NFL Overall Team Offense Top 10 Grades/Rankings

Over the last five weeks, we have covered the top offenses and defenses using different categories. For offense, we graded and ranked passing offense, run offense, receivers, run blocking, and pass blocking. On the defensive side of the football, we graded and ranked the top pass-rush, run stop, and pass coverage defenses. The results of each, when combined, provide us with a preseason situational analysis grade for both the offense and defense of every NFL team that we use to determine NFL power rankings, the strength of schedule for all teams, and projected win totals.

About The Analysis

Today's analysis wraps up our total offensive team grades combining passing offense, run offense, run blocking, and pass blocking team grades. The average for each team determines how a team will be ranked heading into the 2021 NFL season.

The Grade Scale

The team grades use the individual player grades to get an average for each category. For offense, it's passing, the run offense, receivers, run blocking, and pass blocking. As mentioned above, we use pass rush, run stop, and pass coverage for the defense. The scale is a 1 to 10 rating scale, with one being the lowest and ten being the highest. On average, based on preliminary analysis, a grade of 6 to 6.99 is a playoff-caliber position group, or if the entire offensive grade is in the area of 6 to 6.99, that will represent a playoff-caliber offense. A seven or higher average represents a Super Bowl Caliber offense, defense, or position group.
