NFL Week 6 Stat Recap Table: QB, RB and WR

For some, it was an amazing week, like Tom Brady, Todd Gurley and Tyreek Hill. For others like Marcus Mariota, it was a week to forget. The Titans allowed him to be sacked 11 times, and yet he completed only 10 passes. It's not uncommon to see something like this when a backup comes in

For some, it was an amazing week, like Tom Brady, Todd Gurley and Tyreek Hill. For others like Marcus Mariota, it was a week to forget. The Titans allowed him to be sacked 11 times, and yet he completed only 10 passes. It’s not uncommon to see something like this when a backup comes in for a possession or two, but Mariota played the entire game. Either the Ravens defense was on fire, or the Titans are in desperate need of a offensive line.

Notable Performances

  • Jameis Winston, Andrew Luck ,and Patrick Mahomes tossed for 4 touchdowns
  • Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers both produced 2 touchdowns, along with last minute game winning drives
  • Melvin Gordon rushed for 132 yards and 3 touchdowns
  • Todd Gurley rushed for 208 yards and 2 touchdowns
  • Tyreek Hill caught 7 passes for 142 yards and 3 touchdowns

NFL Week 6 Football Props: 49ers vs. Packers

It's been an interesting season for both the Green Bay Packers and the 49ers of San Francisco. Both teams sit at 3rd in their respective divisions, and have produced only 3 combined wins.

It’s been an interesting season for both the Green Bay Packers and the 49ers of San Francisco. Both teams sit at 3rd in their respective divisions, and have produced only 3 combined wins. The 49ers lone win came against the Detroit lions, a team that handed Green Bay its second loss last week. San Francisco has averaged just over 23 points through it’s first five games, so their offense doesn’t seem to be the problem. Their defense however has allowed almost 30 each game, including 28 last week to the struggling Arizona offense. The Packers have also seen there share of struggles. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been full strength for any of the games thus far. The wide receiver corps is dealing with its share of injuries. And Mason Crosby just came off perhaps his worst kicking performance of his career. Despite all of this, the Packers can hop into second place over the Vikings with a win tonight. Green Bay will has its bye next week. They’ll hope that it can provide some long needed-rest for their offense, as they play the Rams, Patriots, and Dolphins (all teams with 4+ wins) in the following 3 weeks.

Last week, the Chiefs played from behind for the first time this season, bringing into question their ability to play with their backs against the wall. Down 10 with just under 13 left in the 4th quarter, Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs on 2 impressive touchdown drives, converting on multiple 3rd down conversions (including a left handed pass to Tyreek Hill). Getting the ball back with 1:39, Denver put together an impressive drive but were unable to punch it in. Kansas City Faithful were certainly happy that their young quarterback was able to remain calm and composed when faced with a 10 point 4th-quarter deficit. Keep in mind, this was Mahomes worst performance of the season and yet he still tossed for over 300 yards and 1 touchdown (and ran one in from 8 yards out).

The Jacksonville Jaguars are also putting together a nice season, losing only to their divisional rivals the Titans. They aren’t getting the attention that the Rams and Chiefs are seeing, but their commanding win over New England in week 2 certainly keeps them on everyone’s radar. Jalen Ramsey is considered by many to be the best corner in football, and his matchup this week with Tyreek Hill has been anticipated by everyone. Can the rest of their defense keep up with all of Kansas City’s offensive weapons?

Week 4’s Monday night matchup features the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos. This divisional rivalry has been somewhat streaky the past couple of years. From week 12 of 2012 to week 2 of 2015, the Broncos won 7 consecutive games. Since then, the Chiefs have won 5 consecutive games.

Kansas City continued to build on it’s hot start with a win over the 49ers in week 3. They currently sit atop the AFC west, are 1st in the league in points scored (118) and are 3rd in point differential (+26).

Last week, Denver lost to a tough Baltimore team that is 2nd in point differential (+46). It seems that Case Keenum hasn’t really found his rhythm in the offense, throwing for 3 touchdowns and 5 interceptions through the first 3 weeks. The run game has been solid, but Phillip Lindsey getting ejected in the first half of last week’s game didn’t help anything.

It’s tough to imagine that the Mahomes train will slow down any time soon, but should Denver’s defense be up the the task, the Broncos would jump into first place in the AFC West.

At the beginning of the season, there were many who firmly believed that tonight’s matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams would be a preview of the NFC championship game.

The Rams are currently tied for third in total points scored (102) and first in points allowed (36),  giving them the best point differential(+66)  in the NFL by a long shot –  the next closest are the Ravens at +46.

Todd Gurley has recorded 4 touchdowns and 255 yards through three weeks, while Brandin Cooks has caught for 336 yards, but is yet to find the end zone.

If you live in New Jersey and want to open a legal sports betting account, click here.

The Vikings are one of four teams to start the season 1-1-1, an anomaly unto itself. While week one featured a strong performance against the 49ers as their defense recorded three interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Week 2 versus the Packers ended in a tie, but could have gone either way with Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson missing 3 field goals and Clay Matthews getting called for roughing the passer on a play that would have sealed if for the Packers.

And then there’s week 3. Anyone who follows the NFL was rightfully shocked by the Buffalo Bills 27-6 win in Minnesota, as the Vikings were a 16.5 point favorite.

Keep in mind, it’s still early in the season, and a win on Thursday would discard any fears had by the Vikings faithful.

Week 3 features the first of two meetings between NFC South foes, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Both teams present strong quarterbacks and top wide receivers.

Over the first two weeks, the Saints have been outscored by their opponents 66-61 (Buccaneers 2-0, Browns 0-1-1), while the Falcons have outscored their opponents 43-42 (Eagles 1-1, Panthers 1-1).

The Saints and Falcons both present strong passing games and a more than sufficient, run game. 

Freeman and Kamara have changed the way these two offenses have performed, considering their pass-catching ability.

Falcons’ Coach Dan Quinn says Freeman is day-to-day, so his status should be monitored, regardless of whether or not he gets the okay to play. Kamara, on the other hand, will look to continue his explosive play.

In week 4, the Saints travel New York to take on a struggling Giants team, and the Falcons host the Bengals who currently sit atop the AFC North at 2-0.

The Tampa Buccaneers are off to roaring start this season. Through two weeks, they lead the league in two offensive categories – total yards, and passing yards.

The Bucs are averaging 37.5 points per game and have already scored 10 touchdowns. However, if there’s one offensive area they’re lacking, it’s in the rushing department. Tampa Bay rank 27th in total rush yards and Ryan Fitzpatrick is the only player with a rushing touchdown. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers are starring in a different film. While they are 2nd in the NFL in both pass yards and overall yards, they sit in 4th place in the AFC North at 0-1-1.

Their last regular season win came on December 31st, 2017 and since that day, the Steelers lost a shootout to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional round, tied the Cleveland Browns, and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Le’Veon Bell doesn’t appear to be in any hurry to return to the huddle until terms are met. At while Antonio Brown is set to play Monday night, Le’Veon Bell doesn’t appear to be in any hurry to return to the huddle until terms are met.

It would appear the Buccaneers have all the momentum, while the Pittsburgh faithful grow antsier each week.

Will Monday night provide evidence that the Buccaneers are a legitimate threat in the NFC, or will the Steelers nab their first win and gain back some much-needed confidence?

Here are a handful of player, game and team props for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.

NFL Player Props for Week 3

Last week, Ryan Fitzpatrick and ex-Eagle DeSean Jackson connected for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. After being down 20 points late in the 3rd quarter, Philly almost managed a comeback but fell short. This week, Carson Wentz returns as the starting quarterback to take on the Indianapolis Colts- and you can

Last week, Ryan Fitzpatrick and ex-Eagle DeSean Jackson connected for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. After being down 20 points late in the 3rd quarter, Philly almost managed a comeback but fell short. This week, Carson Wentz returns as the starting quarterback to take on the Indianapolis Colts- and you can bet the Eagles are hungry. Last Time Wentz was on the field, he tossed for 291 yards and 4 touchdowns en route to a 43-35 win over the Rams.

Ryan Fitzpatrick on the other hand, has started this season with with 8 touchdowns, 819 yards, only 1 interception and a QBR of 151.5. He will look to continue his success this Monday night when the winless Steelers roll into Tampa Bay.

Patrick Mahomes is the only player with more (10) touchdowns than Fitzpatrick through week 2. The red-hot Chiefs will host the 49ers, who just bounced back with a win over Detroit.

Here are the player props for week 3:

How Prop Payouts Work

Prop betting is a growing product feature of the NFL betting menu. Prop bets can make up as much as 15-20% of overall NFL handle for online and mobile sportsbooks with a higher hold (profit) than side and total bets.

Prop betting is a growing product feature of the NFL betting menu. Prop bets can make up as much as 15-20% of overall NFL handle for online and mobile sportsbooks with a higher hold (profit) than side and total bets.

“Usually on a typical weekend we’ll have props on the Thursday, Sunday, & Monday night games,” said Jay Kornegay, Vice President of Race and Sports Operations at Westgate. “At times, we’ll have props posted on other marquee matchups. Each game will have 10-20 props. Most are on individual players and team props. A small percentage is head to head.”

Interactive Prop Odds Table
The interactive table below will enable quicker digestion of the risk and reward that comes with prop betting.

For example, a -200 line that means for every $200 you wager, you’ll win $100 (plus your $200 original bet amount). While the “plus money” side of the bet means for every $100 you wager, you’ll win $170 (plus your $100 original bet amount). This difference between wager amount on the favorite $200 (-200) and winning amount $170 (+170)on the underdog is called a 30 cent line.

  • Use the drop-down menu to navigate between .20 to .30 to .40 lines.
  • Hover to the Fav (favorite) and Dog (underdog) lines that match your props.
  • Get the Fav and Dog percentage of happening, based on the odds 
  • View the Overround, the estimated profit of the sportsbook and a key measurement in profitability.

The Giants dominate October while the Panthers shine in December. In Green Bay, the Pack has winning records in September, October, December, and January, but drop to 50% in November. The Raiders and Broncos steadily decline throughout the season. It could be weather, or playoff situation, or injury issues but the month of the year seems to have a considerable effect on some teams success. 

Of course, there are teams that are immune like the Patriots and Browns, obviously for different reasons.

Defense Wins Championships, or Does It?

Over the past two decades, we've seen some absolutely dominant offenses. Who can forget Rodger's 15-1 2011 Packers (560 total points), the Brady-Moss 2007 Patriots (589 total Points), or Manning's swan song with the 2013 Broncos (606 total points).

Over the past two decades, we’ve seen some absolutely dominant offenses. Who can forget Rodger’s 15-1 2011 Packers (560 total points), the Brady-Moss 2007 Patriots (589 total Points), or Manning’s swan song with the 2013 Broncos (606 total points). As a result, these teams ended up having some of the best records in football, however none of them won the Super Bowl. The Packers didn’t even win a playoff game.

Bear Bryant’s old adage “defense wins championships,” is based in fact. Super Bowl XLVIII is a perfect case study: The Seahawks dismantled the record-setting Broncos 43-8 in one of the most lopsided Super Bowls in history. The 2002 Buccaneers – featuring defensive stars like Warren Sapp, Derrick Thomas, Simeon Rice, John Lynch and Ronde Barber – allowed only 196 points the entire season and handily beat the Oakland Raiders in the Super Bowl. An offense led by Brad Johnson and Mike Alstott didn’t light up the scoreboard, but that didn’t matter for the Bucs. 

This graphic allows you to compare the success of a team (wins or losses) to scoring data (points for, points against, or point differential). You can also select a specific team or look at all teams. The colors indicate the divisional rank at the end of each season.

Every postseason, young teams are counted out from contention because they don’t have “playoff experience,” but does that really matter?

To answer that question we first, we compared Super Bowl wins and playoff appearances. There are 9 teams that have made the playoffs at least 8 times since 2002. All but one of the teams won at least one Super Bowl. The only team missing was the Falcons and we all know how that turned out. 

Secondly, we compared Super Bowl Wins and Playoff Win Percentage. All of the teams that have won the Super Bowl since 2002 have won 50% or more of their postseason games, regardless of the number of playoff appearances they’ve had.

While it may not be the perfect indicator, Playoff Experience is certainly a strong metric for predicting the Super Bowl winner.

Normally Vegas keeps past Win Total odds, lines and results close to the chest. The NFP team has researched and accessed win totals results from the last ten seasons in the NFL. These lines give us an idea what teams consistently beat the season’s preliminary over/under line and which ones don’t. While Vegas is still extremely accurate, the data does show small cracks which we are examining in a series of articles. Here’s part one: The Overachievers. The full data table is below. 

  • Click on the Team name to see a table of the team’s stats by year
  • Click on the O/U/Push to see a chart of the team’s results by year



  • O/U/Push: The Over/Under record for the given team since 2008. For Example, the Cardinals are 6-3-1:
    • 6 seasons in which the Cardinals won more games than their Over/Under Line
    • 3 seasons in which the Cardinals won fewer games than their Over/Under Line
    • 1 season in which the Cardinals tied their Over/Under Line
  • Mean Wins: The Average number of wins per team since 2008.
  • Mean O/U Line: The Average Over/Under Line per team since 2008.
  • STD DEV: The Standard Deviation of the differences between the wins and over/under lines:
    • Low standard Deviations (Bills, Browns, Patriots) mean that the team’s wins and Over/Under Lines were close together.
    • High standard Deviations (Panthers, Falcons, Texans) mean that the team’s wins and Over/Under Lines were farther apart.
  • Over/Under Line: Predicted number of regular season wins for a team.
  • Over/Under Result: Season Results, O for Over, U for Under, Push for Tie.

Days before Super Bowl III, Joe Namath famously guaranteed his New York Jets would defeat the heavily favored Baltimore Colts. His guarantee came true, and New York fans rejoiced. 49 years later, the Jets faithful have had little to celebrate, apart from their postseason win over the Patriots in January of 2011. It’s been a tough go of it, but maybe things will turn around for them soon.

The last time the Browns won their division, it was called the AFC Central, and the year was 1989. Since then, they’ve had only 3 winning seasons.

For most fans, it’s bad news to hear the term Drought and their favorite team in the same conversation. We’ve compiled data on each team, and how long it’s been since their last:

  • Playoff Appearance
  • Playoff Win

Since the NFL was restructured in 2002, there are four teams that have not played in the postseason as a wild card. The Patriots, Bears, Texans and Buccaneers have either won their division or missed the playoffs completely.

In the same time frame, the Patriots have made 14 postseason appearances. Combined, the Bears, Bucs and Texans have made 10 appearances. 

Amount of wild card appearances is a good metric for the continued strength of a division as a whole. The graphic below displays each division and the number of wild card appearances since 2002. The AFC North comes out on top, boasting five consecutive seasons from 2008-2012 in which they sent at least two teams to the postseason. The AFC East and NFC West each finished with only six appearances.

Following a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 31st 2017, the Cleveland Browns completed their perfect 0-16 season. On the same day, the Baltimore faithful watched in anguish as the Ravens gave up a last-minute touchdown to the Bengals, essentially handing their wild card spot to the Buffalo Bills.

After starting the season with 4 consecutive losses, the Los Angeles Chargers finished the season with 9 wins (and almost nabbed themselves an AFC wild card spot). The 49ers started the season in a similar fashion, but finished on a 5-game winning streak, defeating three playoff teams.

You may not be a fan of any of the aforementioned teams, but the information probably sounded a bit familiar. That’s because wins and losses tend to be the only stats that anyone remembers.

It’s no secret that the New England Patriots have pretty much owned the AFC East for the past decade. However, did you know that the rest of the AFC East have averaged fewer than 8 wins in the same time frame? If the goal is to make the playoffs, it certainly helps when the rest of your division tends to produce losing records. The flip side of the AFC East is the AFC North. The Bengals, Steelers, and Ravens have had many strong seasons, often sending two of the three teams to the playoffs (in 2011, all three teams advanced to the playoffs).

The graphic below allows you to choose a division and a team, and it displays the wins for the selected team vs. the average wins for the rest of the division.

In 2018, we’ll get to see Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers battle it out on the field for the second – and possibly final – time.

Success Before and After a Super Bowl Win

After back-to-back 7-9 seasons, would anyone have predicted the Eagles would win Super Bowl LII? Did anyone believe that the Giants would miss the playoffs in the three seasons following the team's win over the Patriots in SB XLVI?

After back-to-back 7-9 seasons, would anyone have predicted the Eagles would win Super Bowl LII? Did anyone believe that the Giants would miss the playoffs in the three seasons following the team’s win over the Patriots in SB XLVI?

Predicting the success of a Super Bowl winner before the next season begins is far from an exact science. Unless it’s the Patriots, who will lose a game near the end of the regular season to a less-than-average team, soar through the playoffs and then play in an exciting Super Bowl. Also, there will be a game in there where one of their four running backs scores three touchdowns and it will be against your fantasy football team. Classic Pats. But, if you aren’t a diehard Patriots fan, your team’s season won’t be as predictable.

We decided to take a look at how teams have fared in the three years before and after they won a Super Bowl since 2008. Use the dropdown box to select a year, and hover over the dots to see the results.

Visualizing NFL Shutouts Since 2008

Not even a field goal. In the NFL, shutouts are rare and represent domination for the defense and an offense that is in sorry shape. A high placing on the y-axis shows a team who has historically struggled on both sides (Browns). A high placing on the x-axis is a team with a stellar defense

Not even a field goal. In the NFL, shutouts are rare and represent domination for the defense and an offense that is in sorry shape. A high placing on the y-axis shows a team who has historically struggled on both sides (Browns). A high placing on the x-axis is a team with a stellar defense who knows how to score (Seahawks). Strong on both is a team with a great defense but bad offense (Rams).

How has your favorite team fared when it comes to shutouts? Check out the graphic below to find out:

A Comparison of 2018 NFL Draft Grades

Let's imagine for a moment that you're an Arizona Cardinals fan, and ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. is your go-to source for NFL information. You were probably a bit frustrated when he gave your team a C+ for their overall 2018 draft grade. You call your neighbor to tell him the bad news, but he tells

Let’s imagine for a moment that you’re an Arizona Cardinals fan, and ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. is your go-to source for NFL information. You were probably a bit frustrated when he gave your team a C+ for their overall 2018 draft grade. You call your neighbor to tell him the bad news, but he tells you that Gennaro Filice of NFL.com gave the Cardinals an A. You hang up the phone, pondering the question: “How can two experts assign such different grades?”

This is just one example of how a reader’s perception of their team can be skewed by the sites they favor. The goal of this data visualization is to compare draft grades from five notable websites (ESPN, Yahoo, Sports Illustrated, CBS, and NFL.com) and see just how much their results can vary based on the same information.

Some teams, like the Chargers, stayed consistent across all the sites. Others, like the Saints, proved pretty divisive.
Use the dropdown lists to compare different media outlets. The darker the circle, the greater the grade difference. Play around with the data and see what interesting conclusions you can draw about your favorite team, or your favorite analyst.
