Steelers Offensive And Defensive Directional Stats Through 15 Games


As we head into the final week of the 2013 regular season, I thought I would post where the Pittsburgh Steelers currently rank both offensively and defensively in the league when it comes to the directional stats. I meant to do this every quarter of the season, but that plan slipped through the cracks.

    Thanks for compiling this stat. It confirms that the Steelers keep running to the right most of the time – not as bad as before under Arians, though. I was hoping that they would be more balanced now that they have a RG that is mobile & can pull. It looks like they rather have Foster pull, even though he doesn’t move as well as DeCastro. Any ideas why?
