yet it was not big enough to keep the offense fro being 7th in the league in scoring
John, I've said this a million times before, but to repeat ... scoring simply is NOT a QB statistic. It just isn't.
It's a whole offense stat, with a major defense and STs component in terms of field position (and the Bills offense had the 11th best average drive start field position in the league while leaving the defense screwed with the 23rd worst average drive start field position).
Tyrod and our poor passing game should get down on their knees and thank our excellent run game for doing so much scoring to make the offense look good.
17 passing TDs, 29 running TDs and three scored by the defense. Just barely more than a third of our scoring was by the passing attack ... in a league where not one single solitary lonely desolate unaccompanied isolated other team in the league scored less passing TDs than running TDs. Thank goodness the run game was so good. Because the passing game just wasn't.
Tyrod's regression was indeed big. 20th in passer rating and 26th in YPA.
