In Case You Missed It: Month 1 of Houston Texans Advanced Stat of the Week

Nate Dunlevy@NateDunlevyGuest ColumnistApril 26, 2012

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 Houston Texans.

Pythagorean Wins: This stat looks at points for and points against to determine a team's "true" record. The Texans were very much for real in 2011.

Net Yards Per Attempt (NY/A): This stat figures sack yardage into a classic passing stat. Matt Schaub is much, much better than T.J. Yates.

Catch Rate: This stat takes the percentage of catches made versus times a receiver was targeted. How will the Texans replace Joel Dreessen?

Success Rate: This stat looks at successful runs. This was a controversial piece. I still don't understand why.

Passer Rating Differential (PRD): This stat looks at the difference between offensive and defensive passer rating. What happens if the Texans take a step back on defense?
