The biggest illustration of the difference between QBR and traditional passer rating this week was provided by Curtis Painter, who played for the Colts after Kerry Collins suffered a concussion.

Painter’s passing numbers looked reasonably good: 5-for-11 for 60 yards. But he lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. That factors into his QBR, the metric that is more inclusive than passer rating when trying to pin a number on a quarterback performance.


Passer rating maxes out at 158.3; QBR goes to 100.

Here's a look at the Week 3 starters. And here's the whole season.
