Awesome statistical information for football junkies. Thanks to SMQ for the work.
First counterintuitive result: the most penalized teams were slightly better as a whole than the least penalized teams. Penalty yardage, over the course of an entire season, had no discernible effects on winning and losing. You can probably think of a situation that would specifically argue otherwise, cuz penalties are definitely bad, mmmkay?, but they’re bad more as situational mistakes than an overall, cumulative drain.
