Despite the Big 12's reputation, Baker Mayfield faced stiffer competition than either Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen last year. The adjusted defensive QBR of Mayfield's opponents, weighted by his number of action plays against them, was 44.8 last season. By the same method, Darnold's and Rosen's opponents' defensive QBR were 47.4 and 50.9, respectively. The lower the defensive QBR, the better the defense is at stopping opposing quarterbacks.
