2012 NFL Week 6 TOX Stats

Week 6 of the 2012 NFL season is in the books and here are the TOX stats for the week along with the year to date numbers for all 32 teams at the bottom. The +2 teams went 8-3 this week and that brings the year to date +2 number to 47-10 (82%), which is still 2% higher than the expected number. Both the Oakland Raiders and the St. Louis Rams lost despite having a whopping +5 TOX number. It is not surprising that both lost by only 3 points as both teams should have won their games.

Teams with a +1 TOX stat finished 1-1 for the week and that brings that year to date number to 14-10 overall. You can see the difference that +2 makes.

The Carolina Panrthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears, and the New Orleans Saints were all on a bye in week and thus their year to date numbers remain the same.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were +1 this week against the Tennessee Titans and lost. It really puts an importance on that dropped interception by Keenan Lewis or the long reception by Titans tight end Jared Cook at the end of the game. The Steelers defense is doing a great job at not allowing explosive plays as they lead the league right now in that stat. The failure to get off of the field on third downs and the lack of turnovers is what is absolutely killing this team right now. It should be noted that 2 of the 11 allowed explosive plays this year went for touchdowns and they were very long ones at that.

Perhaps there is a correlation to having balanced TOX on defense and it is something I plan on researching at some point.

I will be tracking this stat throughout the year as it is a good measuring stick to show how important explosive plays and turnovers are in each and every game.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I love Steelers Depot and Dave Bryan and all the hard work he puts in to his blog, but I do feel this stat is a little over-rated. It has a great correlation, but it is one of those, “what do you do with that?” stats. Of course the team with the most plays usually wins, just like the team with the most TD’s usually wins. All teams want to make big plays and not turn the ball over just like they all want to score TD’s but it is very much an after the fact stat and not really an actionable one.
