When you look at the rankings like this I feel as though that is not far off actual performance. The special teams haven't been bad enough to produce huge game costing blunders, but I feel as though it's going to happen at some point. If our special teams plays even mediocre we would probably be the top of the AFC.

However there is merit to the argument that football doesn't lend itself as well to advanced statistics such as DVOA or PFF's grading system, due to the small sample size. I think both advanced metrics and traditional statistics can be intertwined and you can glean a very accurate picture of how each team is doing relative to the other teams in the NFL.
