    Guess it doesn't help I don't recognise any of the icons representing the teams. ^_^

    I'm horrible at explaining things
    The farther left and down the teams are on the graph the more effective their defenses have been.

    The team with the blue and green bird (Seahawks) has one of the defenses in the league. They are very good at keeping the opposing team's offense from running or passing the ball down the field thus keeping that team from gaining yards (unit of measurement) during their plays and keeping them from scoring.

    They allow the least amount of points to be scored against them per game than any other defense in the league.

    ok, so, the x axis is the average points allowed per game by each team's defense. The y is the yards. After that it's just figuring the numbers out and plotting like any other graph. The closer to the bottom left, the better the defense.

    Points per game is really the only thing that matters when determining the best defenses. There are good defenses that give up more yards, but limit the scoring out of strategy. They will allow a lot of short plays in order to not get burnt with big scoring plays. This allows other teams to march up and down the field on them but when they get inside the 20 there is much less room for the offense to operate which is when those teams shine (they no longer have to worry about the long play).

    well, if you wanna get all technical, yeah. Dyra is european though and likely doesn't follow close enough for a big explanation :P

    I don't really see the point in being awake.

    Goodnight, everyone. I hope tomorrow is less awful then today.

    So, an average match between those Seahawks and that Viking team (top right) would end in 30-14?
