Before the begin of the 2017 season, we utilized this space to expound on the absence of achievement had by “uneven” groups that performed fundamentally better on one side of the ball than the other.
Since the NFL extended to 32 groups and opened them into the present eight-division organize in 2002, there have been 17 events where a group completed in the best 10 in both scoring and hostile DVOA, and in addition the last 10 in the two focuses permitted and protective DVOA. The consolidated record of those 17 groups was 139-132-1, and that is notwithstanding the way that four of the 17 (2004 Packers, 2006 Colts, 2010 Colts, 2016 Falcons) figured out how to win twofold digit recreations. The other 13 squads dealt with a consolidated record of only 96-111-1, dropping the general winning rate for the gathering from 0.513, or a 8.2 win normal, to 0.464, or a 7.4 win normal.
Every one of the four of those previously mentioned groups that oversaw twofold digit triumphs completed inside the best six in scoring and hostile DVOA, and outside the last three in focuses permitted and guarded DVOA.
