Passer Ratings: Through Week 17

Below are my passer ratings through week 17. See here for the methodology (including an update as to what the numbers actually mean). Basically, the values can be loosely treated as the number of points a team would score with a given QB (passing offense) vs if they had an average QB. So, if Peyton has a 5.75, this means that his team is scoring 5.75 more points per game than if they had an average QB in his place.
