NFL Rewind - Week 14

For this particular piece, I decided to perform an analysis on key stats for each team - I will glance over each team's page in my NFL 2012 file, and show what metrics stand out as potential indicators to success or failure. All records listed below are ATS unless otherwise noted. In the below table, you can get a better feel for each metric. Here is the average or 16th ranked value for each stat which can help you gauge how tough or easy it is to reach some of the levels discussed below:
