Total QBR is a quarterback rating that takes into account all of a quarterback's contributions (passing, rushing, sacks, fumbles, penalties) to his team's scoring and winning and summarizes them into one number on a 0-100 scale, on which 50 is average.

For a game, the number can be interpreted as a percentile, so a score of 80 means a quarterback's performance is in the 80th percentile of all quarterbacks' games. For more about the methodology and statistics behind Total QBR, see here.

Drew Brees had the third-best QBR game of the season, going a perfect 12-of-12 on passes that travelled at least 6 yards in the air. Matt Schaub also had his season-high QBR, going 15-of-16 for 257 yards in the final three quarters.

The Raiders' quarterback duo of Carson Palmer and Kyle Boller finished the week next-to-last and last, respectively, among qualified QBs.

Below is the full breakdown of Total QBR and its component statistics for the NFL QBs with a minimum of 10 action plays in Week 7.
