Newton posts league-low Total QBR

Of the 26 quarterbacks to start Sunday, Carolina’s Cam Newton had the lowest Total QBR: 15.1.

That came in a loss to Seattle. Jacksonville’s Blaine Gabbert (19.7) had the only score that was even close to Newton’s.

New Orleans Drew Brees had a season-high 83.7 to finish fourth in Total QBR in Sunday’s games. Atlanta’s Matt Ryan was No. 8 at 74.4.

For the season, Ryan is third in the league at 78.4. Brees is No. 15 at 62.8.

Newton (42.4) is No. 25 and Tampa Bay’s Josh Freeman, who had a bye Sunday, is No. 31 at 33.1.
