Brady % of Receptions Lost from Previous Season
Patriots defensive DVOA against different types of receivers. TEs and slot receivers killed them, with running backs just behind them.
Must read preview and one so dense you might need to print it out. Trust me it’s worth it.
Check out NE’s season DVOA from the season below, excellent overall consistency.
Great nuggets throughout, as always… including this one:
New England’s defense forced 42 fumbles, that’s a fumble on 2.62% of opponent touches, and recovered 21 of them, all league highs this season and club records (easily) since they began tracking the stat in 1995. In those 18 seasons that they’ve tracked fumbles, only two defenses have forced more fumbles in a season (2002 Eagles and 2000 Ravens with 45), six have had more recoveries of opponent fumbles (led by the 2000 Ravens with 26), and the Patriots rank sixth in fumbles forced per opponent touch: 3.07% – Ravens, 2000 2.84% – Eagles, 2002 2.75% – Titans, 2000 2.72% – Giants, 2010 2.63% – Cardinals, 1995 2.62% – Patriots, 2012
Great stats throughout!
