TD%: 4.4%, 16th
int%: 3.6, 10th
sack%: 6.3%, 21th
QB rating: 87.8, 17th
After two games with Von (rankings are where these stats would be if sustained over the whole season):

yards/attempt: 5.3, 1st
completion %: 53.2%, 1st
TD%: 5.2%, 25th
int%: 5.2%, 1st
sack%: 6.5%, 22nd
QB rating: 64.2, 1st

small sample sizes here so tough to make definitive calls, but so far, it seems:
* significant improvement in y/a, completion %, interception rate, and QB rating.
* no significant improvement in TD % (due to Luck tossing 3 against us)
* no significant improvement in sack rate, which is a little surprising.
* worth noting: 1st implies "better than Kansas City". Just putting it out there - when this D plays to it's potential, it may actually be better than KC.
