2009 DRIVE STATS

Regular season totals, playoffs not included

Revised as of 9/5/2013
Drive stats compiled by Jim Armstrong

These stats are computed from NFL Drive Charts and are not adjusted for strength of schedule or situation.

DSR represents Drive Success Rate, as introduced in Pro Football Prospectus 2005, which measures the percentage of down series that result in a first down or touchdown.  Take-a-knee drives at the end of a half are discarded. NET values are simply OFFENSE minus DEFENSE.

The top number in each category is in bold type.  NFL ranking is in parentheses. For more drive stats, please see:
