I will be writing pieces every other week or so at FiveThirtyEight this season, and the first one takes a look at the idea of variance in the NFL.

Every season is crazy in its own unique way. I talked about what is driving this downward trend in DVOA variation in the passing game, which is really the innovation by the 2007 Patriots and the lack of innovation in the years since.
