PFR Game Score Finder

Posted by Neil on November 5, 2012

We don't know what tonight's game will hold, but it just might end with an historically-unique final score. If so, as a Pro-Football-Reference user you'll know first because you can run a search on any combination of final scores to see how often they've occurred all-time.

Using the main table on this page, and clicking the "count" column header to sort by he number of instances in the database, you can find the rarest and most common scores in pro football history. You might be surprised to see the number of combinations that have taken place just once, running the gamut from 66-0 blowouts to brutal 5-3 affairs. And at the other end of the spectrum, 20-17 is by far the most common all-time final score.

Play around with the tool for a while, and you'll always know where to find an answer when somebody asks, "how often does this score happen?"

New Vegas & game time features on Team Game Finder

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2012

Spending a lazy Friday morning at work? No fear, we've put a couple of new features up on the Team Game Finder tool.

First off is the addition of Vegas betting lines (from 1978 to now) to the additional search criteria selector, with which you can find games in the past 5 years in which a team was favored by more than 10 points or 17+ point underdogs in the last 30 years. We also have Over/Under lines, with which you can find all Patriots games since 2002 with an O/U greater than 50.

Next, we've added game time and time zone selectors to the filter criteria, with which you can find that the Bengals have a .700 record since 2002 in games played at 4pm in the Eastern time zone or that the Green Bay Packers have the best record in the last 15 years in road games on the West Coast.

New Front-Page Standings Interface

Posted by Neil on November 2, 2012

Many of you may have noticed that we slightly tweaked our front-page standings table for the 2012-13 season. Now it looks like this:

 

Team W L
SAS (1) F C $ 2 0

What do F, C, and $ mean?

Clicking "F" next to the team abbreviation brings up the team's Franchise Page, which contains a year-by-year summary of the team's entire history.

Clicking "C" will call up the Clubhouse Page for each team. Team clubhouse pages contain a snapshot of where the team is and how they're playing right now, with a calendar-style schedule, team four factors & leaders, and a table of player stats over the team's last 10 games.

Finally, "$" takes you to the team's Contracts Page. These pages list the team's payroll for the current season and the next four seasons, plus descriptions regarding the terms of every player's contract.

We hope these new links will make it even easier for you to navigate our site and get the info you need this season.
