Compiling statistics can take hours upon hours in order to find the proper numbers. To save you the trouble, here are some of the best statistics about the Steelers published during this past week.
I will begin with a few statistics of my own before going on to other various Steeler sources. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @STLRSuperFanDad in order to get some of BTSC’s geekiest stats.
Two #Steelers played 100% of the offensive snaps (1,116) in 2018: Alejandro Villanueva and @RamonFoster. With 73 ST snaps each, they led the team with 1,189 snaps, which was also tied with rookie Terrell Edmunds (966 on defense and 223 ST).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 19, 2019
With 12 rushing TD’s in 13 games in 2018, @JamesConner_ ranks 2nd in franchise history in rushing touchdowns per game (0.932) in a single season. Only @francoharrishof in 1976 (14 rushing TD’s in 14 games for 1.00 rushing touchdowns per game) ranks higher.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 19, 2019
The @steelers 345 rushing attempts in 2018 was the fewest in a 16-game season in franchise history. Since 1947, the only season with fewer rushing attempts was the strike-shortened season of 1982 (289). This includes 33 seasons of less than 16 games.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 18, 2019
The 2018 @steelers had their 2nd worst turnover margin (-11) since 1968. The only season which was lower since then was 2011 (-13).— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 17, 2019
The 2018 @steelers had the fewest players register either a kick or punt return (3) in team history. Two of those players (Nix and Samuels) only fielded the ball due to a short kick. @Switz was deep to field every kick in 2018 and had 857 return yards which was 5th in the NFL.— SteelersSuperFanDad (@STLRSuperFanDad) January 14, 2019
Four catches for 161 yards, including a 64-yard TD late in the fourth quarter.— NFL Throwback (@nflthrowback) January 19, 2019
