Bucs QB Josh Freeman solid in Total QBR

By Pat Yasinskas

At least on Sunday, Tampa Bay’s Josh Freeman was a top-10 quarterback.

Freeman’s 65.2 Total QBR in Sunday’s victory against Kansas City ranked No. 10 in the league. For the season, Freeman ranks No. 30 with a 37.5 Total QBR.

A score of 50 is considered average. Atlanta’s Matt Ryan didn’t have his best game, throwing three interceptions in a victory against Oakland, but he still came in slightly above average. Ryan’s 53.1 Total QBR ranked No. 14. On the season, Ryan is tied for No. 5 at 74.4.

New Orleans’ Drew Brees and Carolina’s Cam Newton were on their bye weeks. But Brees (62.8) is ranked No. 14 for the season.

Newton (42.4) is No. 27.
