NFL Is Botching Kickoff Returns

A lot of readers have asked me to run numbers on kickoff returns this year, to find out if returners really are making a mistake by taking it out of the end zone so often. I never have found the time, so it's nice that Benjamin Morris at FiveThirtyEight has done it for me.

"If the entire league had simply taken a knee on these 356 kickoffs it returned out of the endzone, it would have saved a combined 1,108 yards of field position."

So stop taking the damn kickoffs out of the end zone. Stop it already. Just stop.
