2021 NFL Key Stats (via Divisional Playoffs)
The NFL entered its first 272-game regular season. It started with a Thursday night matchup when the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers edged the Cowboys in Tampa, 31-29. It ended with a 35-32 victory in overtime on Sunday night by the Raiders in Las Vegas against the Los Angeles Chargers.
All told, there are a lot of numbers when it comes to football. And it’s always interesting to keep tabs on home-field advantage in the NFL. In 2019 and 2021, home teams only finished nine games above 0.500. In 2020, has COVID-19 and low or no stadium attendance resulted in a 127-128-1 rating for local clubs?
