Tom Brady at No. 22 spot in Total QBR

After he ranked no lower than third in Total QBR over the past three seasons, it’s odd to see Tom Brady at the No. 22 spot through two games in 2013.

He’s behind guys like Terrelle Pryor, Jake Locker, EJ Manuel and Carson Palmer, and just one spot ahead of Eli Manning, who has seven interceptions through two games.

It’s a ranking that probably speaks more about the 36-year-old’s depleted receiving corps than any diminishing skills.

Total QBR is an ESPN-developed metric used to measure the performance of quarterback. It is a statistical measure that incorporates the contexts and details of those throws and what they mean for wins. Here’s more about how it is calculated.
