I've been recording drive stats from the NFL gamebooks for all games.....


Here's the most telling stat for this week:


For the year, the Atlanta defense is allowing a scoring drive 50% of the time. (17 FGs, 19 TDs, 72 drives).

This is worst in the NFL. And the "best" showing was against StLouis who was held to 36%. (4 of 11 drives). Which is league average.


The Panthers defense is allowing offenses to score on 27% of all drives for the year. (12 FGs, 8 TDs, 73 drives). Panthers are tied for 2nd (with SEA, SF, NE). KC is a clear #1 @19%.


Atlanta's offense has actually performed well for the year with very similar numbers to the Panthers. 41% for both teams.


This game may not reach a Minnesota Def (ranked 31st @47%) type blowout, but ATL's D shouldn't be stopping Cam & Co.



And for the division leader:

NO defense continues to play well. They are right behind the Panthers (and SEA, SF, NE) @ 29%, ranked 6th.

Their offense (46%, ranked 4th) vs is just a bit higher than the Panthers. (41%, ranked 6th). That game is a long time away and the numbers may move a bit. If we were to play right now, I'd go with home team wins each matchup in two close games.

That was rather informative. Way better than the shart skid mark thread, but that one's going on 4 pages...
