2012 NFL Third Down Statistics - Offense

In our attempt to take a deeper look into the NFL statistically, we here at Stampede Blue have dove into one of the most important and talked about stats out there, Third Down conversions. It shows how well teams continue drives, and how they perform in one of the more high-pressure situations in the game.

We'll focus on the Offense here, but if you want to see the Defensive stats you can find them here. Because we focus on the Colts here, I've included the game-by-game stats for the Colts this season, but you can get totals for all teams here, sorted in several different ways. You can sort any of the columns by just clicking on the header.

Any use of this data must give Stampede Blue and Matt Grecco proper attribution. Please feel free to use it to refute stupid things talking heads say.
