BREES CAPTURES WEEK 10 TITLE IN MIAMI HERALD RANK, CUTS INTO MANNING’S DOMINANCE IN SEASON RACE
The Saints’ Drew Brees racked up 63.60 Week 10 points for his second title in the past three weeks in the Miami Herald’s Passer Success System (PASS) NFL quarterback rankings. That’s the second best week of the season after Aaron Rodgers’ 67.00 points in Week 2. Brees now moves within 65 points of season-long leader Peyton Manning, each with seven games to play. (Manning’s lead had been 109 points after Week 8.) The Miami Herald rankings, in their 16th season, use a simple formula unchanged since its inception in 1998, factoring accuracy, yardage, TD/interception ratio and team result. These are passer rankings per se and do not weigh a QB’s running ability. Most rating systems including the NFL’s and ESPN’s are complicated and percentile based, allowing players who miss half a season to still win a passing title. Our rankings are cumulative, placing a premium on passers who are consistently productive and avoid injury or benching. Because they are cumulative, QBs on a bye take a temporary hit that evens out over the course of a season. Find our updated weekly 2013 rankings in this space every Sunday.
