This One Statistic Says Tom Brady Was The Best NFL Quarterback In 2016

There’s no doubt Tom Brady has had a remarkable season, no matter how many games he’s played.

The New England Patriots quarterback threw 28 touchdowns and just two picks with a 112.2 passer rating. Unfortunately for Brady, the stat that’s been receiving the most attention is the amount of games he’s played (12). Brady missed the first four games of the season due to his Deflategate suspension, and the Patriots went 3-1 with two different quarterbacks in his absence.

Only time will tell if that ultimately hinders Brady’s MVP chances, but there is one other statistic out there that bolsters his case.

Pro Football Focus released its grades for the top five quarterbacks in 2016, and TB12 leads the pack, including MVP hopefuls Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers, by a pretty sizeable margin.

A 99.3 grade seems pretty good, eh?
