Joe Flacco is better than the average Joe.
A new interactive study by Fanatics compiled NFL players’ average statistics to show how they compare to those sharing their first name. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback averages 3.7 more touchdowns than other NFL Joes, while Tom Brady racks up nearly 1,500 yards more passing yards per season on average among his name class.
Other notable findings:
- NFL players named Chris average 1,180 rushing yards per season.
- New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall averages four more touchdowns than the average Brandon.
- Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett averages nearly 20 fewer combined tackles and 1.23 fewer picks than other Michaels.
The study also allows you to plug your own name into the database to see how it stacks up in the NFL and other major sports leagues.
