So I've been wanting to put together a number that signifies how well an offensive line will do against a defensive line based on past performance and strength of schedule. It has take longer than expected but I feel good enough about the numbers to share them with you today. Basically, the chart below tells how well an offensive line will be able to protect or not protect the quarterback. Naturally it also tells us how well a defense will be able to get after the quarterback. It's pretty self explanatory and I added notes in the table below that may or may not help you. So if you've ever wondered how well this offensive line will do versus that defensive line this chart may shed some numerical light on the topic. Unfortunately there's things in the NFL that change each week. Coaches make adjustments and players get injured, this is every week, so I really only pay attention to the larger variations in the numbers, same with RAdv and PAdv in our optimal lineup tool.
Good luck this week!
|Pass Protection Ratings for Week 15|
|TEN||NE||-28.00||this is a pretty big negative number for the Tenn
|SF||CIN||-25.00||Another really big negative number for SF offensive line|
|NE||TEN||-19.00||I would worry about -19 if it wasn't Brady, but he's the
king of dink and dunk to avoid pressure
|CLE||SEA||-16.00||Seattle will feast!|
|SEA||CLE||-15.00||Wilson will scramble to make plays.|
|TB||STL||-15.00||The Saints showed how early pressure hurts Winston long
|NO||DET||-10.00||The Saints O-Line seems to be solidifying based on the
last two week performances so….
|HOU||IND||11.00||This makes for some sleeper plays in Houston|
|SD||MIA||12.00||Didn't expect this rating, not sure I trust the numbers
but those that do could reach pay dirt.
|CAR||NYG||14.00||So you're saying Newton will have time to pass.. Ding
|OAK||GB||15.00||Another unexpected number saying Oakland should be able
to keep Carr upright versus GB.
|CHI||MIN||16.00||It's Miller time…|
|NYJ||DAL||18.00||As if you needed another reason to pick Decker, Marshall
|CIN||SF||20.00||You probably didn't need this number to tip you off to
|WAS||BUF||21.00||Now this one is a nice little ding ding ding for the best
overall O-Line match of the week.
