SITE NEWS: 1993-95 Drive/Pace Stats Added

Our work to add more advanced stats to historical analysis of the NFL continues! As of today, we've added pages with drive stats and pace stats for the 1993, 1994, and 1995 seasons, giving us 1993-2017 in their entirety. Among the interesting tidbits to learn here: the 1993 Buffalo Bills had a faster situation-neutral pace than any offense in the league until Chip Kelly came to the NFL. We'll have to see what it looks like when we eventually add 1990-1992 as well.

Ranking NFL Divisional Rivalries Best to Worst

Great piece from Jason Lisk over at the Big Lead, ranking all 48 divisional rivalries based on how often games are close, how often they are important, how often there are upsets, and how long the rivalry has lasted. Baltimore-Pittsburgh is No. 1 because of four playoff meetings and a lot of close games. Giants-Eagles, Chiefs-Raiders, and surprisingly, Jets-Dolphins follow. Dead last is Baltimore-Cleveland, although there's an emotional component to that one that didn't really make it into the formula. (The real least interesting rivalry is probably No. 47, Indianapolis-Houston.)
