No win probability this week. Something went wrong with my numbers and I haven’t had time to look into it. If you have any complaints, please write them on the back of a $100 bill and send them to the AG PO Box.

Look at Butker go! He’s now the 2nd best kicker in the NFL according to the
infallible rankings AG rankings. He’s perfect on the year, along with 5 other kickers, but since he’s faced the 2nd most difficult situations, he gets 2nd place.
That being said McLaughlin has earned his rank, not only making all 9 attempts but doing so while facing some of the toughest situations in the league.
In other news, Jacksonville’s Josh Lambo remains in last place, where he’s been the last several weeks. His numbers haven’t changed at all, which made me wonder if my query was broken, but nope. He’s still only attempted 3 field goals the entire season. That’s surely the strangest thing happening in Jacksonville recently.
