Carr leads all rookie QBs in yards, TDs, completions, and attempts. His 83.5 PFF QB Rating also ranks first among rookies and 28th in the league. The Seattle defense this year is not quite what they were last year, but still come in at 10th in the league in overall defense as a team. Richard Sherman has only given up one TD on the year, and hasn’t intercepted a ball, but still comes in as the third-best CB in pass coverage among those with at least 155 snaps.

He is first among 3-4 OLBs with at least 115 snaps in Run Stop Percentage, and comes in 13th in Pass Rush Productivity creating 21 pressures. He’ll be chasing Russell Wilson who has the highest-rated run grade among all QBs, +3.8, and is also fourth in Accuracy Percentage among those with 210 or more drop-backs.
