Statapalooza: No Frills

Well, I'm really jammed for time today (must be going around) so this will be a bare bones, tale of the tape style rundown. I feared this might happen today, but thought I could slide this in somewhere between all the commitments and mishegaas, but no. So, light posting today, I'll take a couple days off next week, as I assume, most all of us will, and then we'll ramp up the activity in anticipation of the playoffs. All stats courtesy the incomparable Football Outsiders.

The Ravens suck against #2 receivers (38.5 (31)), but since that's nominally Nate Burleson, I'm not sure how to categorize that...
