Some NFL stats from 2007-2014

Some explanations: Fumbles is with all special teams plays removed. PPF is plays-per-fumble. It also does not include Special Teams TO Differential is turnover differential. The final column is what the turnover differential looks like if every team recovered their own fumbles at a league average rate. So, for example: The Atlanta Falcons were not particularly good at recovering their own fumbles over the past 8 seasons, and their already solid TO differential would be improved had the been merely average in that somewhat random skill. Denver has been stunningly awful at recovering their own fumbles during this time frame. As for everyone’s favorites deflators, lead the NFL in plays-per-fumble, turnover differential, and turnover differential sans luck. In fact, the terms of turnover differential, only Green Bay is in the same league.

I’m planning on doing a deeper dive into this stuff, including a separate sample from 1999-2006 when I get some free time.
