Here's the first Quick Reads featuring YAR and EYds. (That's right, the folks who didn't like the name "Equivalent Yards (EqYds)" won -- the name will be changed on all the sheets to "Effective Yards" in the next few days.) Sorry this is so late, we're still getting used to our ESPN filing schedule. As a bonus, it includes both Monday Night games.

The first ESPN MNF feature of the season finds that, no, division games don't feature more upsets than other games, even if it sometimes seems that way when Oakland plays Denver or Green Bay plays Minnesota. Also, some small sample size fun with a look at which rivalry most often goes to the better team, and which big NFC East rivalry is actually won the majority of the time by the team with fewer wins overall.
