What do these stats mean?
The yardage figures are all going the wrong way. Defensive yards per drive on the season went up 18% from last week to this week. Offensive yards per drive on the season dropped nearly 6% week to week. This is a collapse in production honestly.
Net points per drive(which doesn’t factor in the 6 points on the pick 6 to end the game) collapsed and went into negative territory.
Net sacks and the net third down percentage are bright spots for the Redskins but that’s not enough to build a winning season on. Especially if your efficiency numbers are all headed in the wrong direction and dramatically so.
