Research Notes

  • Matt Ryan had arguably the most successful rookie campaign over the last five seasons, finishing the 2008 season with the second-best Total QBR (72.4) in the league and leading the Falcons to an 11-5 record and playoff appearance. Through nine games, Andrew Luck has put up similar, if not better, numbers than Ryan while leading his team to a 5-3 record.

  • Andrew Luck posted a 89.1 Total QBR on Sunday as he passed for a rookie-record 433 yards and two touchdowns against the Dolphins. In the past five seasons, no rookie had a higher Total QBR through nine games than Luck, who has already led the Colts to three more wins than they had all of last season.

  • Andrew Luck completed all six of his passes on throws outside the pocket Sunday, and has completed 11 of 12 such passes over his last two games, averaging 14 yards per attempt. Entering Sunday, the league average completion percentage on throws outside the pocket was 51.9 percent.

  • Andrew Luck aired it out Sunday against the Dolphins, even more than usual. Luck entered the week leading the NFL with an average pass distance of 9.8 yards downfield but averaged 12.4 yards per attempt on Sunday. Even more impressive, his average completion was thrown 9.8 yards downfield against Miami, his highest in his eight-game career and more than a yard better than his league-high average entering Week 9 (8.4).

  • Andrew Luck completed 8 of 11 (72.7 percent) passes using play action Sunday, including a go-ahead touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton. Entering Sunday, Luck had only one touchdown and completed 59.1 percent of his passes on play-action.

  • Andrew Luck took advantage of a Dolphins defense that sent four or fewer pass rushers on more than 60 percent of his dropbacks on Sunday. Despite struggling against such a pass rush in his first seven games, Luck rebounded to complete nearly 70 percent of his attempts including a go-ahead touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton late in the third quarter.

  • Andrew Luck ended the game with 433 pass yards, the most ever by an NFL rookie in a game. Here's the list including 1pm games today:

  • Andrew Luck is 2nd rookie in NFL history with 4 300-yd passing games. The other was Peyton Manning in 199
