Kyler Murray’s sack total went way down from 2019 to 2020, but that doesn’t always tell the whole story.
It did in this case, as the Cardinals’ offensive line was equally adept at limiting pressure.
The Cardinals allowed a team hurry probability of only 7.2 percent last season, per NextGenStats’ tracking data, which was the lowest rate in the league. The Browns finished second at 7.4 percent, followed by the Chiefs at 7.6 percent, the Saints at 8.2 percent and the Packers at 8.9 percent.
NextGenStats used a baseline of three seconds for a quarterback to experience pressure, with the league average coming in at 13.2 percent of the time.
