2007 Quick Reads: Week 14

This week, Tom Brady puts up one of the top 10 quarterback games since 1996 -- to go with the three other games he's had this year which rank in the top 10 quarterback games since 1996. Oh, and he passes Peyton Manning to set the all-time single-season record for passing DPAR, with three games to go. Just another day at the office for the 2007 Patriots.

ESPN Numbers Crunching: Week 14

This week's survey of interesting FO stats for all 16 games tells you why it will be a big week for T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Greg Jennings, and Roddy White, and why anyone who likes punt returns should watch Seattle-Arizona while anyone who likes kickoff returns should watch Cleveland-New York.

DVOA on AOL: Week 13

Here are the (weighted) DVOA power rankings on AOL, with comments on all 32 teams. Just to cut things off at the pass: Yes, I moved the Giants past the Bengals, because there isn't enough space on AOL to try to get into why the Bengals are so darn high. We all make sacrifices, right?

Week 13 DVOA Ratings

Hey, remember last week when the Patriots almost lost to Philadelphia, and it didn't affect DVOA? Yeah, it didn't quite work that way this week. Plus: Jacksonville is so inconsistent that their inconsistency has no consistency, and check out the new Premium matchup view.

Brett Favre Named SI Sportsman of the Year

I know I'm supposed to say something pithy here about how much the media loves Brett Favre, but the guy is having a remarkable year. Tim Duncan already won the thing, and they did the Red Sox back in 2004, so who's left? Roger Federer, perhaps? Colts fans, feel free to argue for Peyton Manning.

Roy Williams Likely Out for Year

Hey, remember when you put down $100 a few weeks ago because you got good odds on the Lions making the playoffs? Yeah, that wasn't such a good idea.
