Lions, Cards -- taking to the air
Posted Mar. 23 at 12:23 PM
Which teams pass the ball the most? In the last seven years – and this is hard to believe – only two teams have led the league. In each of the past seven seasons, it’s been either the Lions or the Cardinals who’ve passed the ball on a higher percentage of their passes than anyone else.
Both of these teams have been top-10 teams in this category in each of these seven years. The Lions have been top-5 in five of the past 6.
Detroit was the league leader in this last season, with 702 pass plays (including incompletions and sacks) versus only 356 runs.
