2016 Week 7 NFL Passing Statistics
By Chris Malumphy
Eleven quarterbacks had QB Ratings of 100+ in Week 7. Only the Saints' Drew Brees and the Redskins' Kirk Cousins lost, both to other quarterbacks who topped 100.
The only quarterbacks with game QB Ratings greater than the Patriots' Tom Brady in Week 7 were the Jets' Geno Smith, the Bengals' Andy Dalton and the Chiefs' Alex Smith. Who would've guessed?
The Texans' Brock Osweiler doubled his passing yardage against the Broncos after the game was out of reach, yet finished with only 131 yds. Do the Texans miss Brian Hoyer?
The Browns' fifth string rookie quarterback Kevin Hogan passed for 100 yards in 24 attempts against the Bengals, but gained 104 yards with a longest of 28 in just 7 carries.
The Rams' Case Keenum went from a QB Rating of 126.7 in 28-31 Week 6 loss to the Lions to a 50.9 rating in a 10-26 Week 7 loss Giants in London. The Giants' Landon Collins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie robbed Keenum with two interceptions each. It's not always safe to travel abroad.
The Browns' Cody Kessler was once again moving the team before getting concussed. Kessler has now been knocked out of two of the last three games. The Browns' line and Kessler's smallish stature don't help. The Browns' have also had injuries to three other quarterbacks: Robert Griffin, Josh McCown and Charlie Whitehurst.
The Broncos' Trevor Siemian continues to prove you don't need to be a great quarterback, just solid, to win with Denver's defense and running game.
The injury limited Seahawks' Russell Wilson and the aging Cardinals' Carson Palmer couldn't put a touchdown on the board against solid defenses on Sunday night. And multiple missed chipped shot field goals added to the night's futility that resulted in an overtime tie. Bruce Arians and the Cardinals must be "kicking" themselves for not investing in better punters, place kickers and special teamers.
The Vikings' Sam Bradford came back to earth averaging only 5.5 yards per attempt in a 10-21 loss to Eagles. Bradford was sacked six times.
The Eagles' Carson Wentz had the lowest QB Rating (52.4) of any winning quarterback in Week 7, beating the Vikings and Sam Bradford (71.6) 21-10.
The Jets' Geno Smith (who left with injury) and Ryan Fitzpatrick both topped 100 QB Rating without an interception in 24-16 victory over Ravens despite being sacked a combined five times.
It is quite a shame that the miraculous talents of the Saints' Drew Brees are surrounded by so much mediocrity in New Orleans.
Chargers' QB Philip Rivers (86.5) had his worst QB Rating of the year in Week 7, yet out dueled the Falcons' Matt Ryan (87.0) 33-30.
The 2016 statistics of Browns' quarterback Cody Kessler (66.9 %comp, 7.1 yds/att, 10.6 yds/comp 3.0 %TD, 0.8 %Int) are very similar to those of the Chiefs' Alex Smith (67.8, 7.1, 10.4, 3.3, 0.9).
The Lions' Matthew Stafford is having a career year even without the great wide receiver Calvin Johnson: 68.0 %comp, 7.9 yds/att, 11.7 yds/comp, 15 TD, 4 Int, 105.7 QB Rating.
