Our passing offense is terrible on first down, great on third down

Recommended Posts

I was looking though some stats and came across these interesting nuggets:

By a decent margin, Matt's worst down is 1st down. He completes only 56% of his passes and averages a meager 5.5 YPA, while having thrown no touchdowns with one interception. His rating on first down, 63.2, would rank among the worst in the league if his other two downs weren't dramatically better.

By contrast, Matt's best down by far is 3rd down, where he has a rating of 113.1 (which would be the best rating in the league if he could duplicate it on the other downs and almost 50 points better than his first down rating). He's thrown 5 touchdowns, completed 61% of his passes and averaged over 7.5 yards an attempt on that down while only throwing 1 interception.
