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 Indianapolis Colts.

Pythagorean Wins: This stat looks at points for and points against to determine a team's "true" record. Peyton Manning was the master of getting more than expected out of a team.

Net Yards Per Attempt (NY/A): This stat figures sack yardage into a classic passing stat. The Colts struggled at this.

Catch Rate: This stat takes the percentage of catches made versus times a receiver was targeted. A great Colt may well be done.

Success Rate: This stat looks at successful runs. Donald Brown goes boom and bust.

Passer Rating Differential (PRD): This stat looks at the difference between offensive and defensive passer rating. The Colts have a long way to go.
