Data Points: TD efficiency on long drives

Some of you chimed in on Wednesday’s Data Points on “10-Play Drives,” lamenting that the chart did not include how many of those drives resulted in touchdowns.

It’s a valid point. Although sustaining long drives is good for giving the defense rest, as well as building offensive continuity … at the end of the day, these possessions are most valuable when they lead to touchdowns.

With the new kickoff rules in effect, clubs will be forced to put together these long touchdown marches to win games. Below is how every team in the league fared getting the ball in the end zone on drives of 10 plays or more.
