Bucs vs Steelers Drive Chart

I am all for stealing borrowing good ideas. This is one I ran across at TomahawkNation that they have learned from FootballOutsiders. It is largely used in their college game evaluation, but I believe it will give us some good insight into the weekly professional games as well. It's simply a drive chart.

I attempted to take out garbage time drives from both teams because I want to get a more accurate depiction of what happened. Again, this model is from Football Outsiders. An explosive drive is any drive that is over 10YPP.

I will let you draw your own conclusions but I will point out a couple of things.

  • The Buccaneers failed to finish 3 drives in which a touchdown was achievable. One was a stalled drive, one in which Faine stepped on Freeman's foot that made it difficult to get the 6 and another by an Interception that was tipped at the LOS and caught
  • 4 Touchdown Drives in a row. 3 of which were explosive drives (all in the first half).
  • Our average starting field position was at the 31.
