Each week I cover an Advanced Stat of the Week.

If you've missed any of your team's weeks, now is great time to catch up. The series will take a brief hiatus for a couple of weeks until the draft is out of the way.

Here are the first five editions for the Tennessee Titans:

Pythagorean Wins: This stat looks at points for and points against to determine a team's "true" record. Are the Titans who we thought they were?

Net Yards Per Attempt (NY/A): This stat figures sack yardage into a classic passing stat. How were the Titans able to post such a great number without any pass rush?

Catch Rate: This stat takes the percentage of catches made versus times a receiver was targeted. I look at why losing Kenny Britt hurt the Titans so much.

Success Rate: This stat looks at successful runs. I examine the boom/bust nature of Chris Johnson.

Passer Rating Differential (PRD): This stat looks at the difference between offensive and defensive passer rating. What do the Titans have to do to make the playoffs?
