HOW IT WORKS:
Pro Football Focus, which nearly a third of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE subscribes to, has a complex grading process, looking at every player upon every offensive, defensive and special-teams play. Plus or minus grades are given and are based around typically 0, with each position graded slightly differently. If a player will something you normally would anticipate, then a score of 0 is usually given. Grades are given for plays that are reasonably considered to be better or worse than the average or anticipated play. For the final grade, gamer participation is factored in, using a normalization factor to set the average player for the reason that facet of the game to 0.
A rough season continues to get rougher for Bears defensive finish Julius Peppers. According to PFF’s ratings, Peppers had his worst sport of the season Thursday night contrary to the Giants.
Right after sacked six times over two games, the Bears’ offensive range kept quarterback Jay Cutler “clean, ” as coach Marc Trestman calls it, and he had another strong performance because of it.
Injuries forced the Has to rely heavily on protective tackles Landon Cohen and Zach Minter (above, left) and protective end David Bass. Minter plus Bass are both rookies.
