From May 30 and every day until September 5… the start of the 2013 NFL season… Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ will publish “99 Stats Until Kickoff” a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.)
In the 2011 season, the San Francisco 49ers went 13-3, qualified for the playoffs, and fell one game short of making the Super Bowl. An interesting stat about the ‘Niners 2011 season was that they had more field goals made than touchdowns scored for the regular season. They were the 62nd NFL team since 1970 to accomplish this feat, and only the 13th such team to make the playoffs in a season when they had more field goals than TDs.
Last season we saw two teams, Oakland and Kansas City, have more field goals than touchdowns during the 2012 regular season. The Raiders had 28 TDs and 31 field goals, while the Chiefs had 18 touchdowns and 28 field goals. The remaining 30 NFL teams had more TDs than field goals made.
