Beyond the Stats: Week 13

Each week I uncover some interesting stats, tidbits and information that you may or may not know about. This week I take a look at frequency of big games by position. 

This week's Beyond the Stats takes a look at which players are performing well on a consistent basis. Stats don't tell the whole story, but they can definitely paint a picture and provide some clarity on which players are successful and how they compare to other players at the same position. For example: Josh McCown and Aaron Rodgers both have three 300-yard passing games this season. Going further, Derek Carr has twice as many 300-yard games as Aaron Rodgers. Not only does that tell us how well Carr is playing, but it also illustrates how Rodgers is having a pedestrian season compared to the lofty expectations that seemed almost impossible to miss back in August.
