Our weekly outside-the-box, statistical homage to Raymond Babbitt continues with a difficult task to narrow down one for bad and come up with two for good.
For those who missed the "One for bad, two for good" introductory blog post, you can check out the background by clicking on the link.
One for bad
* The Buffalo Bills have two cornerbacks among the NFL's worst 14 in passer rating against, so says ProFootballFocus.com.
Aaron Williams, out with a knee injury, has allowed the second-highest passer rating on throws into his coverage at 136.9 (19 catches, 283 yards, five touchdowns, zero interceptions). Stephon Gilmore has allowed the 14th-highest at 107.5 (25 catches, 399 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions).
Two for good
* Tackles for losses aren't an official NFL stat, and some teams don't even keep those numbers at all. AdvancedNFLStats.com does, and it has Bills captain Kyle Williams down for seven of them. That ranks fourth among all defensive tackles and tied for 11th among all defensive linemen, regardless of scheme.
AdvancedNFLStats.com also ranks Kyle Williams third among defensive tackles with seven quarterback hits.
* As I've said many times before, offensive linemen don't have stats on the backs of their football cards for a reason: because there aren't any.
But some outlets try to quantify good O-line play. ColdHardFootballFacts.com have the Bills ranked sixth on its Offensive Hog Index, a metric that factors rushing yards per play, sacks, interceptions and third-down percentage.
