A reader recently emailed and asked if I had the no-huddle stats from last year against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. I do and below are the stats from our charting project.
In total, opposing offenses ran 153 no-huddle plays against the Steelers defense in 2013 with 96 of them being drop backs and 57 designed runs. These are plays that did no include penalties.
As you can see in the tables below, the Steelers defense allowed a 59.1% completion percentage and a 5.69 yards per attempt number against the no-huddle with no touchdowns allowed. However, they only registered six sacks and no turnovers. The five explosive plays allowed resulted in 165 of the 501 passing yards allowed.
While the Steelers pass defense against the no-huddle wasn’t too terribly bad, the run defense surrendered 4.31 yards per carry on 59 rushes. I should note that two of these runs were quarterback scrambles that each gained nine yards.
Also, the run defense against the no-huddle failed to produce a turnover or a tackle for loss.
