    Against Florida:

    1 rush for 1 yard
    4 incomplete passes
    1 interception
    1 complete pass for -1 yards
    4 penalties


    Bonus:

    In Florida territory:

    7 incomplete passes
    7 completions for 76 yards
    a negative yard QB keeper
    interception
    5 penalties
    14 rushes for 70 yards

    Probably made a mistake somewhere, but that is the gist.

    I don't believe football games are decided in the redzone.

    Jones: "we've performed countless hours of analytics on the nuance of the throw game. What a lot of people don't realize is, statistically, you complete 0% of the throws you don't make. Based on those figures, the chart says we HAVE to throw the football in the redzone."

    Don't forget the YAFC is smaller if you run than if you throw it. Even on an incompletion.

    I'm pretty sure it's called "strike zone."

    I am going with the Bermuda Triangle because the run game disappears there and never seen.

    I wonder if Tennessee has ever had over 1/3 of red zone plays be penalties. Maybe so, but that seems way beyond abnormally high. 4 out of the 11 times we lined up resulted in a penalty.

    Well, we were excited, being so close to the endzone and all.
