Why was the Eagles' season so weird, and what does that tell us about how Nick Foles might fare in Jacksonville? How did Amari Cooper's arrival change Dak Prescott's style in Dallas? What do Ben Roethlisberger and Deshaun Watson have in common? And why must Seattle do everything different than anyone else does?

Tyreek Hill was the NFL's most valuable wideout from the slot last year, while Mike Evans was the most productive when lined up out wide. Our numbers show which players specialized in one role or the other, and whose performance changed from 2017.

The Steelers had the NFL's best defense against play-action passes in 2018, but they were dreadful against straight dropbacks. The Vikings were excellent against straight dropbacks but got strafed by play-action. And most defenses had wildly different results in 2018 than in 2017. We scratch our heads and try to make sense of it all.
Guest columnist John Kinsley reviewed every quarterback's deep passes from last season and found Andrew Luck at the top of the heap. Who else were the best (and worst) deep-ball throwers in 2018, and whose results changed the most from 2017?

The I formation is not dead! The Patriots won the Super Bowl while using a lot of James Develin, while Kyle Juszczyk was a key player for San Francisco. We look at which teams still rely on fullbacks and which don't, how teams are changing in this regard.

To blitz, or not to blitz, that is the question: whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of unpressured passers, or to take arms against a sea of blockers and by sheer numbers end them.

The Khalil Mack trade, as you can imagine, had major effects on the defenses in Chicago and Oakland. Which defenses got the most pressure in 2018? Which coach has a track record out of getting the most out of his teams' pressures?

Patrick Mahomes was the best quarterback under pressure in 2018. He was also the best quarterback without pressure, becoming the first quarterback on record to lead the league in both categories in the same year.
