In a sport that can feel wholly trapped in small sample size theater, reaching midseason point is a significant mark in identifying which preseason narratives are borne from data while taking stock of the unexpected storylines that have cropped up.

Trevor Lawrence games Dropbacks % of Passes Beyond 1st Down Marker Completion % Passer Rating Passing Grade
Week 6 vs MIA 44 29% 61% 93.4 82.3
Week 5 vs TEN 38 45% 70% 92.1 56.1
Week 4 vs CIN 28 29% 71% 96.5 73.5
Week 3 vs ARZ 40 44% 65% 68.1 50.3
