Real Analytics compares the NFL’s top five Passer rating to overall standings. Three of the top five quarterbacks/teams match up in the overall top five of each catagory. The overall passer rating as defined by the NFL, can be at times somewhat suspect and also misleading.
Although in this case at week 9/10 the two separate statistics are fairly accurate yielding a 67% ratio of the top five QB’s versus top five teams.
Teams at 6-2 were judged by + net points rather than percentage.
