Beyond The Stats - Week 2

Each week I uncover some interesting stats, tidbits and information that you may or may not know about. This week I delve into what stands out from Week 1. 


Pass efficiency usually wins - Seven quarterbacks had a 70% completion percentage or higher in Week 1. Five of them won their game, two lost. Eli Manning and Drew Brees. It's hard to believe how efficient Eli Manning was in such a dreadful offensive performance from the Giants. 

It's gotta be an anomaly, right? Every quarterback in the Top 12 in passing yards from Week 1 had at least one touchdown pass, except Tom Brady, who has enough Super Bowl rings for his entire hand and thumb. 

Off to a good start - Last year Cam Newton had 19 touchdown passes and was sacked 36 times. This year he's off to a good start with 2 touchdown passes and 0 sacks. Blake Bortles was the only other starting quarterback to not get sacked. 

He's still Drew Brees - Drew Brees had the highest QB Rating (104.7) last week among all losing quarterbacks. 

Defense and rushing attack wins - The Ravens and Panthers were the only two teams to have more rushing first downs than passing first downs in Week 1. They also outscored their opponent by a combined 43-3 score. 

At least you're not Tom Savage - The Houston quarterback was sacked by Jacksonville 6 times in 13 pass attempts. Deshaun Watson was only slightly much better, sacked 4 times in 23 pass attempts.
