The raw passing numbers of rookies Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys and Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles look fairly similar:Prescott: 68.7 completion percentage, 7 passing touchdowns, 1 interception, 103.9 passer ratingWentz: 63.8 completion percentage, 8 passing touchdowns, 3 interceptions, 92.7 passer ratingBut through the lens of Total QBR, a significant difference emerges. Prescott leads the league with an 82.9 QBR, while Wentz ranks 29th with a 49.9. Both quarterbacks have been good enough to win (the Cowboys are 5-1 heading into their Sunday night showdown against the 4-2 Eagles), so where do the differences in their performances lie?Context is keyTotal QBR is opponent-adjusted, so a?good performance against a bad defense is weighed as such. Wentzs numbers are hurt by the fact that hes faced the easiest set of QBR defenses in the league thus far.For example, in Week 1, Wentz had an unadjusted QBR of 66.1, which looks pretty good by itself, but if we take into account that it came at home, the opponent was the Cleveland Browns and that it was the second-lowest opponent QBR allowed by the Browns this season, it gets adjusted down to a 53.2 -- just about average. This isnt isolated to just the Browns game. Wentz has the lowest QBR allowed by the Lions and the Redskins as well. A look at the strength of Wentzs performances for each team Philadelphia has played:Prescott has also faced a fairly easy set of opponents (28th easiest of 31 qualified quarterbacks) but has exceeded what other quarterbacks have done against those defenses:Its worth noting that the duo shares a pair of common games so far, having both played Washington and Chicago. In both cases, Prescott had a vastly superior raw QBR (98.8 to 58.8 against Chicago and 88.2 to 30.7 against Washington) to Wentz.Moving the chains on third downOne big spot in which Prescott has separated himself from Wentz is third down. Prescott has the sixth-best raw QBR on third down, with a 72.0, while Wentz ranks 22nd with a 36.8.The big driver here is their conversion rates when passing. Both have converted their only third-down scramble attempt and have taken five sacks apiece, but when they do throw on that down, Prescott has converted 48 percent of his attempts into first downs, where Wentz has converted only 35 percent of his attempts -- less than the league average of nearly 40 percent.Overall Prescott is completing 73.1 percent of his third-down pass attempts, best of any quarterback in the league, while Wentz is connecting at a 56.3 percent rate, slightly less than the league average (59.4 percent).Wentz reliant on short passesNo qualified quarterback has a higher percentage of pass attempts come on screen plays than Wentz at 16 percent, and only Matthew Stafford has attempted more screen passes overall (32 to Wentzs 29). Wentz also has the second-highest percent of attempts at or behind the line of scrimmage of qualified quarterbacks, slightly behind Alex Smith at 27.6 percent.These shorter passes by design are set up to help the quarterback, and QBR takes that into account when dividing credit on the play. So when Wentz connects with running back?Darren Sproles 5 or 6 yards behind the line of scrimmage and Sproles ends up with a big gain, most of the credit there is given to Sproles and the offensive line, not Wentz. Meanwhile, Prescott is in the bottom third of the league in passes at or behind the line of scrimmage, with just 17 percent of his attempts in that range, less than the league average of 20.7 percent.When we add everything up, we see that Wentz has not outplayed other quarterbacks who have faced the same defenses, is not converting third downs at a high rate and is reliant on having his receivers make plays for him on short passes, all in contrast to Prescott.All of the above tells the QBR story -- even if the raw numbers and team records would suggest the players are equal.?

After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Hes confident he can be a three-down linebacker in the NFL. It takes some serious leverage to play against tight end Antonio Gates. Being drafted by the San Diego Chargers has put the former Notre Dame star in a "perfect place" because of the support from those in the organization. Oh, and Teo and some friends "just chilled and had a good time" last month in Hollywood at a party hosted by Maxim magazine, which included Teos fake girlfriend on its list of the worlds 100 hottest women. Kept largely off limits since the draft by rookie head coach Mike McCoy, Teo was allowed to speak with reporters for the first time in more than a month as the Chargers opened minicamp Tuesday. Questions about football outnumbered the ones about the fallout from him being the target of a hoax involving a fake girlfriend. Teo said hes had no problem putting behind him the issues that dogged him since they surfaced in January. "When were out on the football field, everything else doesnt matter," he said. "Thankfully for me, Im surrounded by a bunch of teammates who have really pushed me to be better. All they care about is that No. 50 is working his butt off. Ill take care of the work ethic part and for them, they just make sure that Im going in the right direction. Personally, that hasnt been difficult at all. "We have a saying in the defensive room: Keep the main thing the main thing. Im here to play football. Im here to be the best Charger I can be and Im not going to let anything get in the way of that. Well keep the main thing the main thing." The last time Teo was allowed to speak with reporters was on May 10 during rookie minicamp. Since then the team has had several weeks of organized team activities, which are basically practices in helmets, shorts and jerseys, but no pads. Minicamp is the same thing, with no pads until training camp. Teo said the biggest difference between college and the NFL is technique. "The speed, there are guys that are faster, but for the most part, speed isnt the biggest thing," he said. "Its how everybody is technically sound. For young guys youve just got to learn. You cantt just run off blocks, you cant just run through a hole.dddddddddddd Youve got to use techniques when you do the simple things. Its those guys who are great at this game who have mastered those little things." There were questions before the draft about whether Teo could handle being a three-down linebacker, including passing situations. "Yeah, its very exciting for me," said Teo, the Heisman Trophy runner-up. "I have confidence in my ability to be a three-down linebacker. For me to go against guys out here like Antonio Gates, whos a future Hall of Famer, and compete with him every day, is only going to get me better." The rookie said going up against Gates is "very difficult. With Antonio Gates, not only does he run crisp routes, but he changes it up on you. He changes his get-offs and he changes the way he comes out of his breaks. And so for a defender youve always got to play him honest. Youve always got to keep your feet moving. Youve always got to win with leverage. ... As each day goes by Im getting better at it." Quarterback Philip Rivers said Teo is "one of the guys. He hasnt been treated differently than any of the other guys, He hasnt acted any differently than any of the other guys. Hes acted himself. Hes lived up to everything thus far that I think is expected of him, both on the field and off." Actually, Teo was the only Chargers player kept away from the media. "Coach and the organization had a plan for me," Teo said. "That plan was to prepare me the best way for the season. Were out here for football. I think thats the bottom line. The plan was for me to focus on football, focus on getting my head in the playbook and just trying to make that transition as quickly as possible. I definitely have reaped the benefits of that and am thankful that Ive had the time to just focus on the plays and focus on what goes on on the field. That has definitely helped me improve each day." Teo said the biggest thing hes learned from the veterans is to "just come in and work hard. The worst thing you can do is be somebody that they have to push. And so for me, one of the strengths has always been my work ethic." ' ' '
