Turnovers and Penalties by the Numbers


Is winning football games really as easy winning the turnover and penalty battle? For the Bills, the answer is a pretty easy yes.

Here are the Bills seven games this season by turnover and penalty differential. "+" means the bills outperformed their opponent, "-" means the Bills lagged their opponent:

                      Penalty Yards       Turnover Differential

Game 1:               -16                                  0

Game 2:              +57                                  0

Game 3:              +19                                 -1

Game 4:              +26                                 -2

Game 5:               -46                                 -2

Game 6:              +32                                +4

Game 7:              +45                                +4

The Bills have won all of the games in which they won the turnover battle and the game where they tied in turnovers but won in penalties. Throw in the first game with the +0 TO differential, where the Bills had a real chance to win it and a not so surprising trend emerges. When the Bills aren't giving themselves a handicap, they are actually a  competitive team.
