By request: 2010 NFL turnover differential
By Mike Sando
Regular blog contributors beaudini0607 and fundadfor2 requested turnover-differential stats after seeing where NFC West teams rank in various NFL categories.
I've gone through data from ESPN Stats & Information to produce a chart showing turnover differential by interceptions, fumbles and overall. For example, the New York Jets have three more interceptions and seven more opponents' fumble recoveries than they have allowed, producing a league-leading plus-10 overall differential.
The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals rank among the worst teams in differential.
