New England’s not-so-pretty 24-17 win over the New York Jets Sunday was Tom Brady's 187th victory as a starting quarterback. The 187 wins, as has been widely reported yesterday and today, launches Brady into sole possession of the No. 1 spot in the all-time wins list by a starting quarterback. But those reports look only at regular-season victories. Brady, until Sunday, was in a three-way tie for No. 1 on the regular-season wins list with Peyton Manning and Brett Favre.
The New England Patriots are fresh off their worst back-to-back pass-defense performances of the Bill Belichick Era – shredded by both Atlanta’s Matt Ryan in Super Bowl LI and by Kansas City’s Alex Smith in their dismal Week 1 opening loss to the Chiefs. Here is the combined performance of Ryan and Smith in New England’s last two games:Those are losing numbers for a defense.
The Kansas City Chiefs physically and statistically dominated the New England Patriots in a Week 1 game that wasn’t even as close as the 42-27 margin would indicate. More importantly for the long-term prospects of the Chiefs this year, they enter Week 2 ranked No. 1 in the NFL in the single most important stat in sports: Passer Rating Differential, an indicator we pioneered at Cold, Hard Football Facts.com that’s so powerful and so important we call it the Mother of All Stats.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
