Fitz ranks 8th

Posted by Chris Brown on June 7, 2011 – 8:13 am

Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for all intents and purposes ranked in the top 10 among NFL QBs in this one statistic that was broken down by the stat crunchers at Pro Football Focus.

In a very long write up about teams that allow pressure on their quarterback, towards the tail end was a subset about quarterbacks that invite pressure unnecessarily. In this category Buffalo ranked eighth in the league with Fitzpatrick having the biggest hand in avoiding pressure or making a bad play worse by getting rid of the ball.

It also stands to reason that Buffalo may have ranked even higher had Fitz played in the first two games of the season and the season finale, seeing as he only made 13 starts last season.
