Team Statistics

  1. What does the number under the stat Tempo mean and how did you calculate it?

    1. The number is an index, so you can't interpret it literally, but it is a reference to the number of plays a team would run in a given amount of real time (not game time). It is calculated using a formula that considers the game run time, the time of possession, the number of incompletions, first downs, COPs, and out-of-bound plays, and the number of plays run. The details are a little messy because the data is not perfect (which is why I report it as an index). I know that's pretty vague answer, but if you have any specific questions I can try to answer them.
