Week 1 NFL Takeaways: One Thought from Each Game

Reading Time: 6 minutes Jets 17 – Bills 27: The Jets are going to suckThis game looks fairly close but if you watched the game at all it’s obvious that it wasn’t really that close with the Bills going up 21-0 early and then letting up eventually.

True Interceptions: An Advanced Stat Created by Paranjai Patil

Reading Time: 4 minutes Recently, I read an interesting article about NFL Stats that were pretty overrated. Among one of those stats was interceptions, although it was in the sense of interceptions being overrated to judge defensive backs.Then I thought, interceptions are also a pretty overrated stat for quarterbacks as well.
