Offensive and Defensive Points Per Drive by Starting Field Position

A look at the offensive and defensive points per drive by starting field position through the first 6 games.

The defense has given up only 51 points on 75 drives when opponents start on their end of the field.


On the offensive side, it’s interesting to note that the team often does better when it starts farther away. For example starting between the 10 and 20 yields 2.7 points, but starting between the 40-49 averages only 2.4 points. ┬áThese are small sample sizes, in general, so think of these as guidelines vs. absolutes.
