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.

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

    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?
