This week's show focuses on the question of players where the advanced stats seem to disagree with conventional wisdom. Is Blake Bortles having a good season, or not? Why does DeAngelo Williams fly under all the radars for Pittsburgh, maybe the best offense in the NFL? And what the heck happened to Dez Bryant this year: quarterback problems, the lingering foot injury, or both? (Click for audio link.)

Greg Thomas sits in for Scott Spratt on this week's Off The Charts podcast and we discuss the weird split this year between the top teams and all those bad (but not too bad) teams. We go in depth into the worst DVOA teams to ever make the playoffs, talking about whether the NFC East and AFC South champions will join them. Plus, interesting Brock Osweiler charting stats.

Seattle moves into the No. 1 spot in weighted DVOA and threatens to finish No. 1 overall for a fourth straight year, while the undefeated Panthers drop to a surprising sixth. Blame an easy schedule that may have included two games with the worst defense ever.
