NFL Playoff Teams Critical Defensive Stats:  Where Is Your Team?

NFL Playoff Teams:  These stats are compiled through the final game of the regular season in the National Football League with each team having 16 games under its belt.  The following charts show the top contenders for the Super Bowl along with their respective rankings in the NFL for each stat.  Lower numbers are better meaning higher ranked in the league.  We chose these particular stats because A) winning and holding down points is the name of the game, and B) the league is clearly oriented around the passing game and the quarterback.

Scoring Defense:  This is a statistic that is exactly how it sounds.  It measures the total pints given up by each team.  Bear in mind this does not account for scores given up by the offense or special teams or horrendous field position for the defense.

Team Opponent Scoring Efficiency:  This statistic measures the rate at which opponents have had scoring drives as a percentage of all drives.  This would include drives that result in a touchdown or a field goal.  This tells you how effective your team’s defense is at keeping points off the board regardless of field position and the number of drives the opponent had for the game.

Ever find yourself watching your team and saying “we really need a stop here”???  If so then you might want to zero in on Team Opponent Scoring Efficiency.  That stat is telling you how good your team is at getting off the field defensively without giving up points.  That is, after all, the primary objective of any defense. 

Now let’s take a look at the average of all four categories.  Remember, the lower the number the better for your team’s DEFENSIVE productivity.
