Re: Some stats...
you're right, there have been no defensive touchdowns. Thats gonna change this week though.
Re: Some stats...
A. How times per game a TO or big ST play hands the offense great field position.
B. How many drives there are per game.
B probably isn't a big factor. The grind-the-clock games weren't a large fraction of the overall season to date.
