The Brian Hoyer experiment is likely to return mixed results, but so far the Mike Lombardi/Joe Banner plan has been executed to a T: the defense they worked on all offseason is dramatically improved, and they'll have two shots at a new franchise quarterback next April.

The 2013 NFL season is on pace to be the pass-happiest season in NFL history. In other words, the pass ratio (60.1 percent) is set to break last year's mark (57.65 percent). Using DVOA, we found the correlation with wins for passing and rushing efficiency along with some data on whether or not you need a good running game to succeed with play-action passing.

DeMarco Murray had a big game by traditional statistics on Sunday, but just like his big game against the Rams in 2011, it says more about his skill than it does the overall profile of the Dallas run game.

Why can't Aaron Rodgers seem to lead his team to a comeback in the fourth quarter? There's certainly a lot of regression to the mean on fourth-quarter comebacks, but a 5-24 record is pretty significant.

Yes, penalties are bad. And yes, Greg Schiano isn't on the cutting edge of clock management strategy. But the real problem in Tampa Bay is that Josh Freeman is too inconsistent to fit what Schiano wants to do on offense.

Terrelle Pryor showcased a lot of speed on the edge against the Colts, but how should we weigh that against Indy's poor defense?

Golly, Peyton Manning sure does like himself some slot receivers.

Over at ESPN Insider, I look at which teams are most likely to snag the No. 1 overall pick and a shot at Jadeveon Clowney. Well, we list all our projected last place teams, and of course that includes Atlanta... which finishes 8-8 or better in over half our simulations and isn't going anywhere near the No. 1 overall pick.

Can Adrian Peterson ever break Emmitt Smith's career rushing record? It's hard to imagine, given that fewer and fewer NFL carries are going to running backs over the age of 30. (Click to read more.)

With no reason to believe that Geno Smith would be better than Mark Sanchez right now, and no reason to believe that starting Smith right now would help him long-term, why not use Sanchez to give Smith a little space to learn the NFL game and the Marty Mornhinweg offense?
