*  The total number of passing attempts includes all instances where the QB receives the snap with the intention of throwing the ball.  This includes all completions, incompletions, interceptions, and sacks.

*  A Hit is defined as a play where a defender makes contact with the QB before, during, or immediately following a pass.  A Hit does not count as a Sack, nor does it count as a Pressure, and vice versa.

*  A Pressure is a subjective stat that is counted when a Quarterback is forced to unduly move in the pocket, or scramble from the pocket, to avoid taking a hit or a sack.

*  A “Pass Stuff,” is any negative, non-penalty play by the opposing offense where the result of the play is negative or no gain in yardage.  Incompletions do not count as stuffs.  Only completed passes that do not gain positive yardage are considered in this figure.

*  In Run Support, the total number of Attempts includes kneel downs by opposing QBs.

*  A Stuff is defined as any play which results in negative or no yards gained on the play

*  A “Tackle,” is defined as any tackle where the player in question is the first person to make contact with the ball carrier, and that contact is maintained through the end of the tackle.  The only exception is in the case where a defender makes the ball carrier trip, and therefore is down by contact.  Those instances are also considered “Tackles.”

*  An “Assist,” is defined as any tackle where the player in question finishes off a tackle that was already initiated by another player.  In cases where more than one player converges on the ball carrier, the second player to make sustained contact is credited with the “Assist.”  In cases where it is not possible to distinguish which player made contact second, all players in question for the secondary contact are credited with an “Assist.”  A Player may also earn an “Assist” if they are the first to make contact, but the tackle is broken, or only a chip was made on the ball carrier, but the contact sufficiently slows the ball carrier so that the next person to make contact completes the tackle.  This secondary contact must happen within a reasonably short period of time for a player who does not sustain contact to be credited with an Assist.
