Today’s Sports Stat: November 3, 2017

 

How important is it for NFL teams to play well when they come out of the locker room? Are NFL teams successful when they score more points than their opponents in the first and third quarters?

In games through Thursday November 2, there are 11 teams that have a positive scoring margin in both the first and third quarters this season. The 11 teams: Carolina, Denver, Green Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, Los Angeles Rams, New England, New York Jets, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Seattle.

Of the 11 teams listed above who have outscored their opponents in the first and third quarters this season, only two of the 11 (Denver and Houston) have a losing record (both are 3-4). In fact, of the 11 teams listed above, their combined record is 52-31, a .627 winning percentage.

I guess it is important to play well after coming out of the locker room for the beginning of the game and after halftime.
