Frequently asked questions

Do you have any other tips and tricks?

What makes Stathead such a powerful research tool is the depth and breadth of our databases, combined with the endless combinations of filters and search criteria at your fingertips. While some searches are straightforward, there's also many "hidden" tricks you can use to get the answer to questions that might seem unanswerable at first glance. Here's a few of our favorites to get you started. Check back frequently as we continue to add to this page.

Search for Team Season Stats

While the Football Stathead site does not have a "Team Season Finder" like other sports, you can still search and filter for team stats by season and across multiple seasons. And it's easy! 

1. Go to the Team Game Finder

2. For single-season stats, select "Search for Cumulative Season Games matching criteria" at the top

3. For multi-season stats, select "Search for Cumulative Multi-Season Games matching criteria" at the top

4. Sort By whatever stat you are searching for

5. Apply any other filters you'd like to customize your search

6. Click Get Results!

Search for comebacks/blown leads based on time remaining and relative score

In case you didn't know, you can find the largest overall comebacks and blown leads by franchise on each franchise index page on Pro-Football-Reference.  However, if you want to query more specific comebacks -- such as down by 10 points with 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter -- there is no specific "Finder" tool on Stathead for that.  Instead, you can use the Game Play Finder to get the answers to questions like that (data going back to the 1994 season).

Let's demonstrate using an example: Who was the last team to win a game after trailing by double-digits in the last 2 minutes of the fourth quarter?

1. Go to Game Play Finder

2. Choose "Search for All Plays matching criteria at the top of the page"

3. Sort By "Descending Game Date"

4. Set Game Type to "Either"

5. Set Game Result to "Win"

6. In Play Filters, set Quarter to "4th" and Time Remaining to "From 2:00 To 0:00"

7. In Play Filters, set Scoring Margin to "Between -99 and -10"

8. Click Get Results

Then scroll to the section labeled "Individual Plays" and at the top of the table you see a game from Dec. 8, 2013 won by the Patriots over the Browns. Click on the date, and that will bring you to the boxscore for the game and you can verify that the Patriots were down by 12 points with less than 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter before rallying to win. 

Let's do a second example to search for multiple blown leads by a team. In 2020, which team lost the most games after leading at any point in the 4th quarter?

1. Go to Game Play Finder

2. Choose "Search for All Plays matching criteria at the top of the page"

3. Sort By "Descending Game Date"

4. Set Season to 2020

5. Set Game Result to "Win"

6. In Play Filters, set Quarter to "4th"

7. In Play Filters, set Scoring Margin to "Between -99 and -1"

8. Click Get Results

Then scroll to the "Team Defense" table and sort by the second column, labeled "G" (games). The team at the top of the list, the Falcons, is the answer: they lost 5 games when leading at any point in the 4th quarter.

Alternately, if you want to look at teams with the most comeback WINS when trailing at any point in the 4th quarter, you perform the same search, but instead you want to scroll to the "Team Offense" table and sort by games. The team at the top of the list, the Titans, is the answer: they won 5 games when trailing at any point in the 4th quarter.

Can you explain football advanced stats?

Most of the stats you'll find in searches on our Football Stathead site are straightforward stats from boxscores. However, there are a few calculated advanced stats not found on other websites that you might not be familiar with. Here's a quick rundown with definitions of those stats:

ANY/A - adjusted net yards per passing attempt: (pass yards + 20*(pass TD) - 45*(interceptions thrown) - sack yards)/(passing attempts + sacks). 

AV - approximate value. This is our attempt to put a single number on each player-season since 1960 so that we can (very approximately) compare across years and across positions. See this blog page for all the details. 

AY/A - adjusted yards per passing attempt: (pass yards + 20*(pass TD) - 45*(interceptions thrown))/(passing attempts). This stat was introduced, and the reasoning behind it thoroughly explained in a book called The Hidden Game of Football, by Bob Carroll, Pete Palmer, and John Thorn.

NY/A - net yards per passing attempt: (pass yards - sack yards)/(passing attempts + sacks)

Game-Winning Drives - QB must lead an offensive scoring drive in the 4th quarter or overtime that puts the winning team ahead for the last time.

4th Quarter Comebacks -QB must lead an offensive scoring drive in the 4th quarter, with the team trailing by one score, though not necessarily a drive to take the lead. Only games ending in a win or tie are included.
