Since Luc Brodeur-Jourdain says the Als 1st or 2nd in the league in some categories,

here is what categories the Als are doing well in and what needs improvment and a few other tidbits from the latest league stats.
OFFENSE - RANKED 1ST
-Sacks allowed (BC is 9th)
OFFENSE - RANKED 2ND
-Rushing yards per game (BC is 1st)
-Yards per rush
DEFENSE - RANKED 1ST
-Points per game
-Yards per pass
-30+ yards completions
-tied in turnover ratio and turnovers forced.
DEFENSE - RANKED 2ND
-Offense points allowed per game
-Yards per play
OFFENSE - RANKED 9TH
-Plays per game
-Passing yards per game
DEFENSE - RANKED 9TH
-Plays per game
-Als are last in sacks (1). BC is last in sacks allowed (9). Opportunity for the Als defensive line to show something.
-On the flip side, the Als are 1st in sacks allowed (0), while BC is 2nd in sacks generated (5).
-Defense being last in plays per game is not a good sign considering BC is first in time of possession.
-Only defensive category in which BC is ranked low is in 30+ yard plays allowed as they are ranked 8th. However, the Als are tied for fewest 30+ yard plays on offense.
-On special teams, the Als are ranked last in punt return average with only 5.4 yards per return.
-Being 4th in yards per kickoff would be considered a mild disappointment as Boris Bede is usually 1st in that category.
-Darian Durant has a better QB &QUAR rating that Jonathon Jennings.
-However, the Als are the bottom in QB rating for passes between 0-8 yards with only a 74.
-Als and Lions actually have the same number of “big plays” so far this year. Both are only ahead of Hamilton who played only 1 game so far.
