Beyond the Stats: Week 10

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

Did You Know?

  • Start your quarterbacks against these teams - Detroit, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Atlanta and Indianapolis - All allow a QB Rating against of 100+ 
  • Consider keeping your quarterback away from these teams - Denver, Arizona, Minnesota, NY Giants - All allow a QB Rating against of less than 80. 
  • Run Stoppers - Kansas City and Dallas have each allowed only 3 rushing touchdowns this year. 
  • Scoring efficiency - Buffalo, New England, Dallas, Oakland and Tennessee are the only teams with double digit rushing and receiving touchdowns scored this year. 
  • Surprising penalty stat - The Panthers have allowed only 5 first downs to opposing offenses by penalty. 
  • Kicker defense! Kickers against Baltimore have converted only 50% of their field goals. 5/10. At this time last year, Baltimore allowed the most field goals (21). 
  • Speaking of kickers - Four teams have made 20 field goals, tied for first in the league (SD, BAL, PHI, ATL).  The Colts have allowed 27 FG attempts (2.5 per game) 23 of those 27 were made. 
  • Not finding the end zone - Andy Dalton has the most passing yards (2,349) without having double-digit touchdown passes (9). 
  • Scoring isn't everything - Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers, Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston have the most touchdown passes (17) with a losing record. 
  • No end zone celebration yet - Le'Veon Bell has the most rushing yards (376) without a rushing touchdown. At this time last year Melvin Gordon III owned this stat with 413 rushing yards without a rushing touchdown. This year he has 768 rushing yards and 9 rushing touchdowns. 
  • No end zone celebration yet II - Marqise Lee has the most receiving yards (442) without a receiving touchdown. Last year, at this time, the stat belonged to Jamison Crowder with 432 yards and zero scores. Crowder now has 498 yards and 4 touchdowns. 
  • No end zone celebration yet III - Marqise Lee and Breshad Perriman are the only wide receiver with an average of 12.0 yards per catch or higher without a touchdown. 
  • No end zone celebration yet IV - Excluding Eddie Lacy, DeAndre Washington (4.9 YPC) and Darren Sproles (4.8 YPC) have the highest yards per carry for a running back with a minimum of 50 carries to not have a rushing touchdown. 
  • Good Luck Cleveland - The Browns score points on 29.4% of their drives (6th worst). Baltimore allows opponents to score on a drive 23.5% of the time (#1 in the league). They'll meet in Baltimore this Thursday night. 
  • Good Luck San Francisco - The Cardinals have allowed only 5 passing touchdowns all year, fewest in the league.
