Dropped Passes by Quarterback: 2016 NFL Season

The NFL stats definition of a dropped pass is pretty strict, it has to be a clear drop by the wide receiver as opposed to a bad pass by the quarterback or one that goes off a receiver's fingertips.  Looking at the percentage of dropped passes per attempt (percentage) is a more effective way of evaluating incompletions that resulted from dropped passes.
