Close loss or not, DVOA is ready to ride or die with the Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, Chiefs-Rams was one of a number of games this week where the losing team ended up with a higher rating than the winning team.
A historic week of close contests ends with the first game ever where both teams scored 50 points. Was Chiefs-Rams the greatest regular-season game in NFL history? Also: Roethlisberger shakes off his worst start, Riverboat Ron sinks, and the Falcons and Chargers are up to their old tricks.

San Francisco has fallen out of the playoff race, which means this will be the last time they appear in Word of Muth this year -- which is too bad, because between scheme, talent, and execution, they were one of the better offensive lines in the league this season.

The Packers and Seahawks bring drama back to Thursday Night Football. Were those really catches by the Seahawks, and what are these numbers that Mike McCarthy is going by to punt the ball away with one timeout?
Alex Vigderman of Sports Info Solutions introduces Total Points, a tool for player evaluation. Like DVOA, it starts with play-by-play data, but then it adds charting information to more accurately measure the contributions of each player on the field. And it will tell you that Matt Ryan has been the NFL's best quarterback for several years now.
