Off The Charts Podcast: November 19

This week's Off The Charts podcast looks closely at three teams where the win-loss record does not quite match our DVOA ratings. Go deeper into the world of the Minnesota Vikings and how they relate to a baseball stats concept known as "sequencing." Learn about the Kansas City Chiefs and a running game that somehow got better without Jamaal Charles. And go back in time to revisit the similarities between the 2015 Seattle Seahawks and the team that had the best DVOA ever for a 4-5 team: the 2003 Tampa Bay Bucs.

Update #2: Saints DO IN FACT Fire Rob Ryan

The Saints are on pace to break the NFL record for touchdown passes allowed, so out you go, Rob Ryan. UPDATE: Well, change of plans. Apparently, these original reports were incorrect. In a press conference today, Sean Payton insisted that Rob Ryan was still his defensive coordinator. As of Monday afternoon, at least.

Andrew Luck Out 2-6 Weeks with Lacerated Kidney

Breaking and unexpected injury news. Andrew Luck will miss 2-6 weeks with a laceration in one of his kidneys as well as a partial tear of an abdominal muscle. It's not quite as bad for the Colts as you might imagine. They have a bye this week, and Matt Hasselbeck is still a reasonable backup at the age of 40. I assume Hasselbeck faces Atlanta in Week 11 -- the Falcons schedule gets EVEN MORE RIDICULOUSLY EASY with this injury -- and probably Tampa Bay in Week 12. Perhaps Luck can be back in time for Week 13 at Pittsburgh?
