A newer stat to measure the overall value and performance of a quarterback is Total QBR, and it has become the metric of choice in some circles while replacing the more established passer rating.

If you think Teddy Bridgewater had only a so-so game Sunday because he didn't put up eye-popping yardage totals, perhaps you will be influenced to think again based on his Total QBR.

The top score a QB can attain is 99.9. Bridgewater put up a 98.5, good for the third best in the NFL in Week 2 (it would have easily led Week 1) and putting him in the top 60 single games since 2006.
