There is no account in the like opponents analysis for the health of either team (for Example playing Jax with Henne and Blackmon or playing with Gabbert and no Blackmon).
and to wrap that up, it doesn't take into account individual match-ups. Strengths vs. Weaknesses. Numbers don't occur in a vacuum.
I may have oversimplified it a bit for the sake of time and space and look how long the post was anyway! Perhaps you would like to do the adjusted analysis and correct my numbers?
Like I said, the numbers are only an indicator but I think in general my analysis holds up. Points scored are based on a sampling against 9 different teams and points allowed are adjusted for these
two specific teams, based on the competition they have faced.
Accounting for different players being in or out is hypothetical and very difficult to quantify with specific numbers.
