Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick played better than Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week.
At least that’s the case based on ESPN’s Total QBR statistic — which is a fancy new way to measure QB performance.
Here were the QBR leaders:
- Ryan Fitzpatrick (Bills) — 91.2
- Aaron Rodgers (Packers) — 91.1
- Matthew Stafford (Lions) — 87.4
- Joe Flacco (Ravens) — 79.6
- Cam Newton (Panthers) — 75.7
Total QBR is different from traditional QB Rating because it weights meaningful plays in tight games more heavily than meaningless plays in blowouts.
That’s way Kerry Collins had a 2.3 Total QBR even though he had a decent second-half performance in Houston (when the Colts were down by 34).
We thought Aaron Rodgers looked dominant in his game against the Saints, but apparently Fitzpatrick topped him with a 41-7 blowout in Kansas City.
