Getting to see them on Monday Night Football, it was an impressive team to watch. And now, preparing for them, it’s going to be a challenge.

But it’s safe to say that the new statistic at least tells us something about how well a quarterback handles the little but important aspects of the game: taking care of the football, not committing penalties, and avoiding sacks.
