2018 DEFENSIVE DRIVE STATS

Regular season totals, playoffs not included

Revised as of 12/31/2018

Drive stats compiled by Jim Armstrong

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

TO/Dr represents turnovers per drive. FUM/Dr represents fumbles lost per drive. LOS/Dr represents average starting field position (line of scrimmage) per drive. TOP/Dr represents time of possession per drive. 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.

The top number in each category is in bold type
