Quick Hits & Uh?

Despite the monster performance from Aaron Rodgers (34/42, 480 yards, 4TD), his QB Rating was at 146. A perfect passer rating is 158.3, and since it was introduced in 1973, only 35 quarterbacks have achieved this mark (RGIII was the last in 2012).
Mario Williams 4.5 sack performance against the Panthers ranks T-15th all-time. The career record is 7, set by the late Derrick Thomas of the Chiefs in 1990. This record will likely never be broken.
These are the teams you probably weren’t expecting to be 2-0: Miami & Kansas City (the others that are: New England, Houston, Denver, Chicago, New Orleans, Seattle)
On the flip side, here’s these are the teams you probably weren’t expecting to be 0-2: Washington, NY Giants, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, & Carolina (you probably were expecting Cleveland & Jacksonville)
Through 2 weeks, the Broncos lead everyone in Net Points (+40), and the Jaguars sit at the bottom in Net Points (-36)
If you thought your offensive line had issues, just talk to Brandon Weeden, Tannehill, & Geno Smith. The Browns have allowed 11 sacks, and the Dolphins & Jets have allowed 9 sacks.
Maybe 21 is the magic number, because again, that’s how many defensive players had 10 or more tackles on Sunday. Those of you in IDP leagues, hope you are all over that.
