After the debacle of their opening drives during the playoffs, I did a post for Niners Nation looking at what DVOA and our drive stats (thanks to Jim Armstrong) had to say about the matter. In addition to that main story, stats-savvy FO readers would probably be intrigued by the subplot: Even in a split as granular as opening offensive possessions, there's a stark contrast between what a drive-level statistic says and what a play-level statistic says.

The 2016 study of failed completions finds an undesirable record for Joe Flacco, and praise for... Matt Barkley? Also: another depressing Rams sequel, Matt Ryan's weak spot, gadget receivers, and Tom Coughlin's teams are on the rise.
