Stathead Football Adds Player Split Finder

Posted by Katie Sharp on January 12, 2021

Following the introduction of the Team Split Finder last November, we are now proud to announce the addition of another new tool for Stathead Football subscribers: the Player Split Finder.

This powerful tool allows users to search through our splits database to compare players across various situations, with most stats going back to the 1994 season. Here's a quick look at the different splits available and some examples to help you get started.

QUARTER: Most 4th Quarter TD Passes Thrown This Season

LOCATION: Highest Passer Rating on the Road in a Single Season (min. 100 attempts)

DOWN: Most Times Sacked on Third Down This Season

YARDS TO GO: Most Rushing First Downs on Plays with 10+ Yards To Go This Season

DOWN & YARDS TO GO: Best Completion Percentage on 3rd Down and 10+ Yards to Go in 2017

FIELD POSITION: Most Red Zone Targets This Season

SCORE DIFFERENTIAL: Most Pass Attempts When Trailing in 2019

GAME SITUATION: Most Passes Intercepted While Tied with Less Than 4 Minutes Remaining Since 1994

SNAP TYPE & HUDDLE (since 1998): Most Passes Completed Under Center This Season

PASS RUSH TYPE (since 2018): Best Passer Rating Against the Blitz This Season

We hope you enjoy this addition to Stathead. If you're interested in a subscription to the service, you can sign up for a free trial here. We built this tool thanks to feedback from users like you. Should you have any questions or other feedback, please reach out to us.

    This is an exciting new tool but I note there is no option to select single games here only single seasons. What I would like to be able to search for is Most Passing/Rushing/Receiving Yards in a specific Quarter, obviously since 1994. Is this type of query better suited for a Play Index Tool such as an "Event Finder"? If so is an "Event Finder" on your list of potential new PI tools? Thanks in anticipation.

    Thanks for the recommendation Mark. That addition might make more sense in a separate 'quarter' finder a la what Stathead Basketball has. Could be something for us to add in the future if we hear from more people about it. Thanks!

    Neat stuff, always -- Steelers fan here revisiting this (obviously a couple weeks later), was interested in the late-tied interceptions table, got curious about Roethlisberger's lone entry. Did some brute-force checking back through his career game log, determined it to be a game against the Bengals in 2012, BUT I also noted that he had thrown an interception in overtime (so, technically not 4th quarter but obviously tied), THE WEEK PRIOR(!!!). Totally on brand, for Ben, I must say (but darnit, now I noticed his lone *touchdown* thrown in the same circumstances...guess I have a new brute-force project!).

    OK, that one was a little bit easier, thanks in part to another great table on the site, the QB "4th quarter comebacks and game-winning drives" (and that I could look simply at the scoring summaries and not through play-by-play). FWIW, it was vs. Denver, 2015. :-)

  5. Mark Says:

    Oh dear, but wait, when I sort that table by Passing TDs, I get only a handful of QB's with even 1 in that situation, and only Derek Carr with 2 -- that can't be right, can it?
