STATS OF THE WEEK: Just the Way the Ball Bounces

25 Sep

The number of 4th quarter comebacks by the Falcons’ Matt Ryan — most by any NFL QB since the start of the 2008 season — after he led Atlanta back from a 10-point deficit to a 24-20 win against the New York Giants on Sunday. As dearly departed Yogi Berra famously said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

23

The number of consecutive starts not including a win for Atlanta Braves starting pitcher  Shelby Miller after a “quality start” but another loss versus the Mets on Monday. The Braves’ only All-Star — yes, that is correct — hasn’t won a game since May 17th, when coincidentally he came within one out of a no-hitter against the Marlins. In 19 of the 23 games, Miller has given up four or fewer earned runs.

24

The number of passes completed by Georgia QB Greyson Lambert in the Bulldogs’ conference home opener. Out of 25 attempts! The former UVa. signal-caller set the NCAA single-game record for pass completion percentage (96) against the not-so Gamecocks of South Carolina.
