FBO: Number Crunching, Week 2
Trend-based look reveals importance of Wes Welker, Dallas Clark and Ravens' blitz
Each week, Football Outsiders takes a look at every game on the NFL schedule with a mix of interesting numbers and in-depth statistical analysis. Much of the analysis is based on DVOA, which takes every single play during the season and compares it to the league average based on situation and opponent. DVOA and Football Outsiders' other advanced stats are explained here. Because it is still very early in the 2010 season, all analysis below is based on 2009 numbers unless specified.
For all of FBO's Week 2 observations, you need to be an ESPN Insider.
