Brown collects the right stats

Total rushing yards isn’t a perfect yardstick for running backs.  Donald Brown compiled all the right stats however in his stellar performance Sunday against the Titans but Reggie Bush still won the AFC Player of the Week Award because he rushed for 203 yards:

Brown led his Colts to their first and possibly only win of the year. He compiled 0.10 WPA, 5.9 EPA, 41% SR with 10.1 YPC average. He totaled 161 rushing yards with no turnovers.

WPA is win probabilty added.  EPA is expected points added. SR is success rate.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
