It's still early in the season and it's interesting to see some of the teams with good defenses being rewarded in the offensive category for leaving their offenses with good field position, but it's starting to shake out with the best offenses at the very top already - the top four are arguably the best offenses in the league.

Most Overrated Offense: Atlanta, #12 in Total Yards but #29 in OPSPY
Most Underrated Offense: A tie between Baltimore (#23 vs. #5) and shock of shocks, Houston (#29 vs. #11).

Oakland is worst in both Offensive and Defensive rankings. San Diego is showing a #1 Defense to go with their #2 offense. The Colts moved up a few spots on Defense after Week 3 - much of that due to Jacksonville piling up yards but unable to seal the deal with scores either due to turnovers or missed field goals.

Most Overrated Defense: Oakland is #10 in Yards Allowed, but #32 in OPAPY.
Most Underrated Defense: NY Jets, #12 in OPAPY but #30 in Yards Allowed.
