This week's Washington Post column organizes penalty data for every team with anything approaching a shot at the postseason, from the hangers-on all the way up the one-seeds.

This week's Washington Post article uses DVOA for the first and second half of the 2008 season to see who's rising at the right time, who's running out of gas, and which horrible teams are actually upping the ante!

A little DVOA Matchup thing I did for the Scout.com Cleveland Browns site in which I look at a few of the key battles in the Colts-Browns game.

Once again, Football Outsiders will be providing a handful of Keeping Score articles for the Sunday New York Times now that baseball season is over.
