Buffalo continues its comeback tradition

Posted by Chase Stuart on September 26, 2011

The most famous comeback in history happened in Buffalo. The second largest comeback in regular season history occurred inside of Rich Stadium. The largest comeback in the NFL last season came via the right arm of Ryan Fitzpatrick. And now, Orchard Park was the site of another record, as the Bills became the first team to ever come back from 18+ deficits to win in consecutive weeks.

From 2002 to 2010, 22 teams overcame a deficit of 18 points or more to win a game. So far this season, the Bills have come from 18 and 21 points back to win in consecutive weeks. At the same time, the Vikings lost 17 and 20 point leads to Tampa Bay and Detroit. Jason Lisk thinks the craziness might continue, thanks to the ridiculous passing numbers so far this season (more to come on this in a future post).

From 1945 to 2010, there were 126 games where the winning team was trailing by more than 17 points at some point in the game. While the Bills became the first team to win consecutive games after trailing by 18+ points, six other teams did that feat twice over the course of a season. In '96, Bill Parcells' Patriots did the trick against his former and future employer, and in the same stadium: New England trailed the Jets 21-0 in week 11 and the Giants 22-0 in week 17, but ended up winning both games. The '95 Colts came up one play shy of the Super Bowl, but began their never-say-die ways earlier in the season. Indianapolis won two divisions games 27-24, after trailing 24-3 in both games against the Jets and Dolphins. In 1983, the Falcons trailed the (you guessed it) Jets and Packers 21-0 over the course of five weeks, but won both games by six points.

On the other side of things, it's hard to envision a more anxiety-inducing three weeks than weeks six through eight of the 1987 season for Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay scored three first quarter touchdowns against the Chicago Bears, although failed to convert the PAT following the third touchdown. Tampa extended the lead to 26-14 in the third quarter, but ultimately fell 27-26. The next week, the Tampa defense held the Packers off the scoreboard in the first half. The Bucs extended the lead to 23-3 in the 4th quarter, before Green Bay scored two more touchdowns. Tampa held on for the victory. Then, against the Cardinals, the Buccaneers took a 28-3 lead into the fourth quarter. But the Cardinals scored four fourth quarter touchdowns to win the game, 31-28. Remember, folks: for every great comeback, there's an equal and opposite stomach punch.

Road playoff victories

Posted by Chase Stuart on January 22, 2011

Obviously the number of road playoff wins a quarterback has earned is as meaningless a piece of trivia as one could drum up, but that hasn't stopped people from discussing the point this week. With a win tomorrow night, Mark Sanchez will become the all-time leader in road playoff wins. Below is a list of all quarterback with two or more road playoff wins since 1950. Note that Super Bowl games are considered neutral site games, but championship games in the pre-Super Bowl era were not.

Checkdowns: Manning & Brady Nearly Tied in Lifetime Passer Rating

Posted by Neil Paine on December 9, 2010

Here's a checkdown sent to us by Eddy Elfenbein, who points out an interesting fact:

"Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are nearly tied in the NFL’s (mostly useless) Passer Rating.

[...]

[T]he Manning camp could always say that their guy had the better passing rating. This was true for most of the past few years.

But thanks to throwing 11 interceptions in the last three weeks, Manning’s Passer Rating has dropped 94.7567. Tom Brady’s is 94.6978. They’re now separated by less than 0.06 points. Just seven weeks ago, Manning was leading by over two full points. Four years ago, he was leading by more than six points."

Eddy goes on to show an incredible week-by-week graph, illustrating the two players' career passer ratings since 2002.

In Manning's defense (and like Eddy points out), passer rating is a flawed metric. Also, if you examine the graph, Manning's career rating is basically the same as it was in 2008 -- the real change has been almost entirely on the part of Brady, who's improved from 88 to 95 in just three full seasons. Besides, Manning is also a year older than Brady, so he could be hitting his decline phase while Brady is still at his peak (yes, this is grasping at straws, but I want to avoid the appearance of this being Patriots homer week).

Even so, after the 2006 season it was almost inconceivable that Brady and Manning's regular-season ratings would be even by 2010.

Checkdowns: Former Track Stars Turned Pro in Other Sports

Posted by Neil Paine on September 22, 2010

At the website TrackAndFieldNews.com, Heimo Elonen has compiled a neat list of pro football, basketball, and baseball players who were track and field stars before pursuing a career in a different sport. All in all, it's an interesting piece of research if you're a sports fan, and especially if you like football -- as you might expect, lots of NFL players turn up here, including a punter! (Brian Moorman ran the 400m hurdles at Pittsburg State and was actually a highly accomplished Division II track athlete.)

Feature Watch: Introducing the Team Game Finder

Posted by Doug on August 4, 2010

As I announced in the last episode of the podcast, we're adding a new toy to the Play Index section of p-f-r.

It's the team game finder. Like the player game finder, it has five different modes, and I'll walk you through each of them with a few interesting queries.

Quarterbacks and fourth quarter comebacks, Part III

Posted by Scott Kacsmar on January 15, 2010

By Scott Kacsmar (posted by Sean Forman)

Last time I wrote out my methodology in gruesome detail for tabulating comebacks and game-winning drives. What's changed since then? Now that data can be found on every QB's page at Pro-Football-Reference in it's own table.

Schools with the Most Consecutive Weeks Scoring

Posted by Sean on November 3, 2009

As Chase pointed out earlier "the U"s alumni have an active 113 consecutive week scoring streak in the NFL, which is pretty astounding when you think about it. That is over six and a half seasons without missing a weekend. I had to check and see if this is a record of some sort, so I wrote a little perl script to find the longest streak for every school with a scoring alum.

Maurice Jones-Drew, Miami Hurricanes, making history

Posted by Chase Stuart on November 1, 2009

Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for an incredible 177 yards on just 8 carries against the Titans yesterday. Jones-Drew rushed for an 80-yard score on his first touch from scrimmage... in the second quarter. On the first play of the second half, Jones-Drew ran 79 yards for his second and last touchdown of the day. Jones-Drew joined Barry Sanders and Frank Gore as just the third running back ever with two 75-yard rushing touchdowns in the same game.

Jones-Drew's 177 rushing yards were the most by any running back with just eight carries in a game since 1960 (and probably ever). In fact, no one with fewer than 13 carries in a game has rushed for as many yards in the last 50+ years. The table below shows the most yards gained on the ground in a game from 1960 to 2008, for X number of carries:

Percy Harvin and Tony Dorsett

Posted by Chase Stuart on October 13, 2009

At 5-0, the Minnesota Vikings are off to a terrific start. Part of the reason? Minnesota's two big additions in the off-season -- Brett Favre and rookie wide receiver/running back/returner Percy Harvin -- have paid significant dividends already for the Vikings. The New York Times NFL Blog, The Fifth Down, reminded me of something interesting -- Harvin won the national championship last year with the Florida Gators and is on a pretty good team in the pros. If he were to win the Super Bowl this season, he'd join a pretty exclusive club: only three players have won a college championship their last season in college and then were starters on a Super Bowl champion the following year: Randall Gay (LSU, New England 2004), William Floyd (Florida State, San Francisco 1994) and Tony Dorsett (Pittsburgh, Dallas 1977). Percy Harvin actually isn't a starter yet (he's started in 2 of 5 games, but is generally behind Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian on the depth chart), but his impact on the team may be more significant than that of any other receiver on the Vikes.

Whether Harvin starts or not, he'll still join an exclusive club. There haven't been many players to win a national title and then earn any amount of playing time and a Super Bowl ring the following season. The complete list is presented below, including the approximate value the player contributed to his team in his rookie year:

player   	 rkyr	tm	college	        AV
Eric Alexander	 2004	nwe	lsu	         0
Randall Gay	 2004	nwe	lsu	         5
Marquise Hill	 2004	nwe	lsu	         0
Brian Griese	 1998	den	michigan	 0
Tyrone Williams	 1996	gnb	nebraska	 2
William Floyd	 1994	sfo	floridast	 8
Derrick Lassic	 1993	dal	alabama	         3
Danny Stubbs	 1988	sfo	miami(fl)	 2
Tony Dorsett	 1977	dal	pittsburgh	16

Percy Harvin isn't the only one who can make history, however. Eagles tight end Cornelius Ingram tore his ACL in August 2008, and watched his Florida Gators win the championship while he was on injured reserve. After being drafted by the Eagles in April, Ingram tore the ACL on the same knee in August 2009 and was placed on injured reserve. If the Eagles win the Super Bowl this season, he'll instantly become the luckiest unluckiest football player ever.

(And before anyone points out, I know there was a third player drafted from the Gators this season. Unfortunately, he was drafted into football purgatory.)

Sack trivia

Posted by Doug on April 21, 2009

I've been busy lately. Fortunately, Chase and JKL and have been doing a great job of keeping things lively around here. I'll continue to busy for awhile, but I have no excuse for not kicking in with at least a trivial post or two per week, especially with this new game log data we have.

So here we go...

Using the game log data, I have attempted to estimate how many times each defensive player has sacked each quarterback. If Lawrence Taylor gets two sacks in a particular game and Steve Grogan is the only opposing quarterback to attempt a pass in that game, we can be pretty confident that LT sacked Grogan twice. But if LT gets two sacks in a game where Tommy Kramer and Wade Wilson both got playing time against the Giants, we're not sure how many times he sacked each of them. Unfortunately, we don't have game-by-game sack records for the sackees, so the best we can do is divvy them up proportionally according to how many passes each of them attempted. In that case, Kramer attempted 25 and Wilson 6. So we credit LT with 1.61 sacks against Kramer and 0.39 against Wilson. It's a kludge, but we're just having fun here.

So assuming that methodology for estimating how many times each player sacked each other, here is the all-time list. The Pct column tells you what percentage of the sacker's career sacks came against this particular sackee.

Sacker               Sackee             Est. Sacks      Pct

Bruce Smith          Ken O'Brien             17.28     8.05

One more quick trivia question

Posted by Doug on January 28, 2008

This one cuts across all kinds of dimensions of trivial football knowledge:

What player/kicker pair has combined for the most career TD/PATs?

ANSWER UPDATE: Brown/Groza almost certainly is the correct answer, but I should have specified that I only have the data from 1960--2007. In that time period, it's a tie between Rice/Cofer and Riggins/Moseley

Four starting QBs

Posted by Doug on December 24, 2007

I got an email last week from a reader named Ben. Here it is:

The Carolina Panthers have had another year where they didn't live up to expectations. However, they've had four quarterbacks start games for them, and all four have won at least one game. Jake Delhomme beat St. Louis and Atlanta, David Carr beat New Orleans, Vinny Testaverde beat Arizona and San Francisco, and now Matt Moore has beaten Seattle.

How have other teams fared when they've started four quarterbacks in a single season? Has any other team had a season where four or more quarterbacks started and won at least one game apiece?

The new database, which includes a GS column, makes the first question easy to answer. Here's the list of all teams since the merger that had at least four QBs start at least one game apiece.

Random trivia: draft class edition

Posted by Doug on December 7, 2007

The Steelers' 1975 1974 draft class is generally regarded as the best in history. It's tough to argue with four hall of famers:

+-----------------+-------+-----------+

| Mike Webster    |     5 |         9 |
+-----------------+-------+-----------+

Those 25 pro bowls are the most ever from a single draft class. However, since the merger, there have been five draft classes that produced more than four players who would go on to make a pro bowl at some point in their career. Who were they?

Random Trivia: touchdown scoring

Posted by Doug on November 26, 2007

As I was perusing Deion Sanders' page at the new p-f-r, I noticed that he had scored touchdowns on kick returns, punt returns, fumble returns, and interception returns. How many players have done that? In addition to Sanders, five: Woodley Lewis, Lemar Parrish, Goldie Sellers, Rod Woodson, and the guy who will be the answer to the following trivia question.

Sanders also has receiving touchdowns, making him one of 13 players in NFL history to score in five of the six categories (rush, receive, kick return, punt return, fumble return, interception return). The other 12 were all finished playing by 1971.

But Deion never got a rushing touchdown. Who is the only player in NFL history to score a TD in all six categories?

ANSWER UPDATE: As was quickly guessed in the comments, Bill Dudley is the guy. As was also pointed out in the comments, Dudley also had passing TDs and one "other TD." Finally, if you count postseason games, then Deion did indeed score in all six categories. Thanks to all commenters for their contributions.

Random Browns trivia

Posted by Doug on November 14, 2007

Only 11 times since 1950 has a team scored more points (28) on fewer total offensive yards (163) than the Browns had last weekend against Pittsburgh.

Ten of those 11 times, the team won. Of course, most teams scoring more than 28 points win, but still....

Random trivia

Posted by Doug on October 12, 2007

What college has produced the most total career NFL passing yards?

FINE PRINT: players who attended multiple colleges are counted with each college (e.g. Troy Aikman counts for both Oklahoma and UCLA).

USELESS HINTS:

1. The answer will possibly be different at the end of this season than it is now.

2. The current answer is not very surprising, but the possible end-of-2007 answer is (a little).

3. If the answer does switch this year, there is a decent chance that it will switch back again in 08 or 09.
