Beyond the Stats Week 4

Each week I uncover some interesting stats, tidbits and information that you may not know.

DID YOU KNOW?

The NFL moves fast - Jacksonville leads the league with a +38 points scored differential. 

Pittsburgh to rule the AFC North? The Ravens, Bengals and Browns have thrown a combined 16 interceptions. Pittsburgh has thrown just 1. 

Consistent production - DeAndre Hopkins is the only player with at least 6 receptions in each game this season. LeSean McCoy is the only running back to have at least 5 receptions in each game this season. Zach Ertz is the only tight end with at least 5 receptions in each game this season.

Joe Slacco?  - You would think the Buccaneers and Dolphins would have the fewest yards passing since they already had their bye, but that belongs to Joe Flacco's Ravens. Miami has 56 more yards than Baltimore in one less game played. 

It's all about the pass touchdowns in Detroit - The Lions are tied for 2nd in touchdown passes with 7 and have score zero rushing touchdowns. 

One of the best quarterbacks in the game- 13 quarterbacks have a quarterback rating of 93.0 or higher. Only one has a losing record. That player is Drew Brees (109.7 QB Rating)

The 100/100 Club - Running backs with 100+ yards rushing and 100+ yards receiving

Is Alvin Kamara the next PPR running back to emerge?  Running Backs with at least 10 rushes, 10 receptions and a yards per carry average of 5.0 or higher.

Is James White on the verge?  Running Backs with 10+ carries, 10+ receptions and 10+ yards per catch
