We're proud to introduce expanded drive stats and new pace stats here on Football Outsiders, compiled each week by our friend Jim Armstrong.
The main drive stats page now serves as a central spot for six stats given for offense, defense and net:
Finally, our new pace stats page displays seconds per play pace stats on both offense and defense. Pace stats are given for all plays, for plays based on lead, and for the definition we call "situation neutral." You can also see the average amount of both time of possession and game time a team spends trailing, leading, or tied.
These stats will be updated each Tuesday during the season and are currently available for every year back to 1997 by using the pull-down menus at the top of the page. They aren't added yet to the green Stats pull-down menu at the top of the page but will be soon.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
