Some links and notes from Pro Football Focus on Seahawks-Broncos game

Here is the usual Friday collection of some links and notes from Pro Football Focus previewing the upcoming game.
First, some links:

— If you missed it here are Week 2’s ReFocused articles for Seattle at San Diego and Kansas City at Denver.

Signature Stats:

And a few comments of my own:

— It seems a little odd that Manning has the lowest average time to throw while Denver has the best pass blocking efficiency. But it speaks to the nature of the Denver offense to get the ball off quickly. Seattle was able to get a lot of pressure on Manning in the Super Bowl despite getting what was officially just one sack — from Chris Clemons. Getting similar pressure is paramount Sunday, even if once again it’s unlikely that the Seahawks actually sack Manning much. He has been sacked two times so far this season.

— Wilson’s accuracy under pressure rating was high last year, as well, and speaks again to how well he throws on the run.

— The stat on Ware shows he doesn’t necessarily move around all that much. If he stays on the right side throughout Sunday’s game then that means he’ll be matched up primarily with Russell Okung. And that would mean Von Miller going up primarily against Seattle rookie Justin Britt. Ware has 1.5 sacks so far and Denver has five, though the general perception is that the pass rush hasn’t quite been what everyone has anticipated it could be. Those will be critical matchups Sunday.
