Check out this web app I put together to measure the effectiveness of plays and drives:
Here are some interesting stats I’ve found so far:
The stats show Andy Reid’s Eagles performed poorly when down a score in the final 2 minutes. The biggest problem seems to be the terrible 34% pass success rate and a below average plays-per-drive (4.4 compared to 4.7). Two-minute drill drives ended in 11 picks (21.2%), 12 turnovers on downs (23.1%), and 10 TDs (19.2%). They ran out of the clock 9 times. Their scoring percentage was 25% compared to a league average of 33.4%. Good luck Kansas City!
The 2012 Jets stand out as a weak offense. There was a big drop in touchdowns, pass play effectiveness, and interestingly, pass play selection. The Jets passed on 57.1% of plays in 2011, compared to 52.1% this year. The loss of CB Darrelle Revis also had an impact. Opposing team’s pass success rate went from 40.8% (with 15 picks) in 2011 to 42.8% (with 9 picks) in 2012.
Finally, the Pats offense was scary-effective this year. Their touchdown rate stands out the most — 32.4% compared to league average 21.0%.
