Y/PL: Yards per play - a key handicapping indicator that indicates how many yards each NFL team gets per play. Teams at the top typically score more points, generate first downs and win. Teams at the bottom struggle with time of possession and are often regular losers.

FD - First downs - which NFL team gets the most first downs. Not always an indicator of time of possession or victories (the 2012 Cardinals started 3-0 while ranking 27th in first downs).

RA - Rushing Attempts - which NFL team runs the ball more than all the others.

RY - Rushing Yards - rankings of best NFL rushing teams.

YR - Yards Per Rush - important NFL betting stat, but is sometimes misleading early in the season if a team has faced a poor run defense or has busted out a 98-yard TD run.

PA - Passing Attempts - most NFL passing attempts per game.

PY - Passing Yards - most passing yards per team, ranked by each NFL team.

YP - Yards per Pass - which NFL teams average the most yards per pass.

Y/PL: Yards per play - a key handicapping indicator that indicates how many yards each NFL team gives up per play. The lower the number, the better the defense. Fewer yards per play equals fewer first downs and less time of possession for opponents.

FD - First downs - which NFL defense teams allow the fewest first downs. Not always an indicator of time of possession or victories.

RA - Rushing Attempts - which NFL defense faces the fewest rushing attempts per game. This can indicate a tough run defense or can indicate that the team's offense scores so many points that opponents are forced to pass more.

RY - Rushing Yards - rankings of best NFL run-stop defenses.

YR - Yards Per Rush - which defense allows the fewest yards per rush. This is a major handicapping stat and should be check weekly!

PA - Passing Attempts - fewest NFL passing attempts per game.

PY - Passing Yards - which defense allows the fewest passing yards per team, ranked by each NFL team.

YP - Yards per Pass - which NFL teams allow the least yards per pass.

Time - Time of Possession - which NFL defenses are on the field the least? Who has the best time of possession stats? This is important category and can mean the defense is very good or it can mean their offense holds the ball very well.

TO - Turnovers - which NFL teams create the most turnovers? Which NFL teams generate the most takeaways? This is often an opportunistic defense which makes an average team good and a good team excellent.

Pen - Penalties - This is an overall ranking of which NFL teams take the most penalties (it is NOT broken down by offensive or defensive penalties.
