ESPN Numbers Crunching: Week 19

You'll learn a lot of things from this week's Numbers Crunching, including why the blitz may be a problem for Eli Manning but not for Jake Delhomme, where the Giants have struggled since Plaxico Burress went down, and how pass rushing in the Baltimore-Tennessee game will be about more than just sacks.

Interesting. It says in this that Pittsburgh's offense gets much better in the second half, but in the AFCW blog, BW put up a chart showing Roethlisberger looking really unimpressive in the fourth quarter. Wha' gives?

just off the top of my head, maybe the steelers are balanced in the third quarter, but go to the run in the 4th. or maybe rothlisberger struggles when the steelers are down in the 4th and he has to pass a lot. i saw something like that in the titans game.
