Playoff Game Finders

Posted by Neil on January 4, 2013

In anticipation of the playoffs kicking off tomorrow, here's a reminder that you can use the Pro-Football-Reference Play Index to search for playoff games from the past and present.

The Player Game Finder will return all individual games that meet the criteria you select. Try searching for the most yards from scrimmage in a playoff game (Keith Lincoln alert), or use the "Cumulative Season Games" and "Cumulative Multi-Season Games" modifiers to group multiple playoff games in the same postseason or find career leaders.

Meanwhile, the Team Game Finder can help you find team playoff games under various criteria, like the most pass attempts in a playoff game or the biggest point differential by a team that trailed at some point in a postseason game.

You can get the most recent results the morning after the games are played, so by Sunday we should have Saturday's results loaded in. Just be sure to set "Game Type" to "Playoffs" on each tool, and have fun!
