NFL Week 11: QB Productivity Rating Report


Photo Credit:: Washington Redskins

Week 11 of the NFL Regular Season is in the books! Starting this week, I'll be doing a weekly report of the NFL's QB Productivity Ratings, featuring the Top and Bottom 5 performances of the week, along with every starting quarterback's rating, rather than just tweeting the Top/Bottom 5 on Twitter (which you can follow me at @KennethGoit).

I'm going to break this down into divisions, first, before I show the Top and Bottom 5 performances.

For those new to the QB Productivity Rating, you can click here for an explanation, and here is the 2016 Midseason Report to see how this week's performances stack up against the midseason averages.

Top Division of the Week

The top division of Week 11 should be no surprise: the NFC East. The quarterbacks in the East have been pretty good this season, and this week was no exception. The league's average QB Productivity Rating for this was 33.94, and Philadelphia Eagles rookie Carson Wentz is the only one to score below that average with a 22.64 QPR, which is impressive, given he was playing the Minnesota Vikings.

Top 5 Performances of the Week

No major surprises here. The Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers were the only team with a Top 5 QB this week to lose, but those chances are pretty good when the opposing quarterback was as productive as the Washington Redskins Kirk Cousins was.

Bottom 5 Performances of the Week

This week's Bottom 5 is not too disappointing (partially because New York Jets Ryan Fitzpatrick did not get a chance to participate given the Jets were on a bye). Two teams with a Bottom 5 quarterback won, but the Pittsburgh Steelers had help from the worst starting quarterback of the week, the Cleveland Browns' Cody Kessler. Jared Goff's rookie debut was bad enough to be in the Bottom 5, but it was only the 8th-worst starting rookie debut since 2012 (nothing compared to Johnny Manziel's -19.25 in 2014).

How is Bortles higher than Osseiler? lol

Bortles had one more pick than Osweiler, but he had one more TD and didn't get sacked at all, while Brock was sacked a couple times.
