The writer should have set of the initial "Of the year" in quotes, since he is emphasizing that part of the article's title. It's not a complete sentence, but rather a sentence fragment that the writer is highlighting to make a point.
It's like writing an article with the title: Daryl Dixon is the Best Fighter in the Zombie Apocalypse
(And then my article continues as follows:)"In the zombie apocalypse." It's important to remember that qualifier. Daryl is not the biggest or tallest person in the world, but he is an expert with a crossbow and in a world where noise attracts zombies and bullets are limited, that weapon makes him the best person to have in your group.
