Sorry it just hurts my eyes, but +6 is not a ratio. We are +6 in the turnover differential. We have a 4:1 (4 to 1) turnover ratio, for every 4 turnovers our opponent commits, we commit 1 turnover. Essentially through 3 games we are playing 4 times more mistake free than our opponents.

Here's a surprising stat...
According to STATS, Inc., Smith ranks third in the NFL against the blitz this season with a 143.1 passer rating.
Invalid stat since he has not thrown for 300 yards yet
All it means against the blitz is that he completed a pass, wasn't intercepted or not sacked. Deceiving stat. during that stat-did he get a first down? Touchdown? We all know -rarely.
This is still a shocking stat, no one would've ever guessed Alex would have a passer rating that high against blitzes! Everyone kept saying "Oh defenses will just stack the box and force Alex to beat them and Alex will lose everytime..." well not anymore!
