Like golf, a low score is better (i.e. if a team was ranked #1 in the NFL in all 8 offensive categories, their Offensive Ranking would be 8). Here is what I found:

In the AFC, the Bengals are the most balanced team and are far superior on defense than their AFC counterparts. In the AFC, we also see what we likely already knew – although the Broncos are clearly the top offensive team, their defense is extremely vulnerable. A more balanced team like the Bengals or Patriots have a decent shot against an unbalanced team like the Broncos.
