Since we're not putting up the new DVOA ratings and commentary until tomorrow morning, I feel like I owe you all something new. So here, enjoy this updated list of leaders in quarterback hurries according to the FO Game Charting Project. We've compiled through Week 14, and most teams have roughly 12 games charted. Some have fewer or more, so the list is ordered according to hurries per charted game.
This only includes plays that count officially, so hurries that lead to offensive holding are not included on this list.
Chris Long was lapping the field the last time we measured hurries, but he had a midseason slump with only one hurry in Weeks 11-13. That allowed the rest of the league to catch up, hso now he's only in first place by a normal amount.
Nice job by a couple rookies getting on the bottom of our list.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
