NFL Dashboards

By: Bryan Povlinski

The NFL Dashboards are designed to give you access into the most granular level of detail on the NFL: play-by-play data. The problem with play-by-play data is that it’s very difficult to make sense out of in raw form. It’s simply a list of plays and text about what happened on that play. We’ve structured the data into a more usable form where we can start to do analysis and see what’s really happening in specific situations across different teams and different weeks.

First Time Here?  I would recommend clicking on the Title of a dashboard that you’re interested in and reading the explanation on how to use it. It’s not always intuitive what each element of the dashboard is the first time you look at it so reading the description will give you a much better feel for how to use filters and get to the insight you’re looking for

Full Dashboard View If you know what you’re looking for I would recommend clicking on the image of each dashboard so that it opens as a full page in a separate tab where you have full control to filter and interact with the data.

      Fixed now. This page is still a major work in progress. There’s a lot more that will be added soon and better explanations on how to use each one will be included.

    Goal Line Carries, Individual Play Breakdown and % of Plays Gaining at least X yards all open as tiny photos today. I haven’t tried all of them, but others that I have tried did open full-page

      I’m working on it – it’s been a very busy few weeks with NBA launching. I should have these ready soon.
