PACKERS’ RED-HOT RODGERS WINS WEEK 7, CATAPULTS INTO MIAMI HERALD SEASON LEAD
Packer Aaron Rodgers wins the Week 7 title, his second consecutive weekly crown, and jumps into the overall season lead in The Miami Herald’s Passer Success System (PASS) quarterback rankings. Season-long leader Matt Ryan of the Falcons slips to third place off a bye week, while Dolphin Ryan Tannehill tumbles five spots, also after a bye. (Players on a bye take a temporary hit that evens out over the course of a season.) Our rankings, in their 15th year, use a simple formula unchanged since 1998, factoring accuracy, yardage, TD/INT ratio and team result. Most ratings including the NFL’s are complicated and percent-based, allowing a player who misses half a season injured to still win a title. Our rankings are cumulative, placing a premium on productive QBs who avoid injury or benching. Our updated 2012 rankings appear in this space every Sunday.
