I spent the majority of my Sunday with NFL in the background, a little more focused on decorating my house with Christmas lights, garlands, and anything else that’s shiny and bright. But fear not! I still tracked down any injuries. (#multitasking) The only difference was that I was excel spreadsheeting in an elf costume! And now I digress… Week 14 brought to us a miserable 49 injuries (woof!). Shall we compare how this week did? Yes! Without further adieu: week 15 by the numbers:
With six teams on their bye week, we were treated to only thirteen games this week. Keep that in mind while we look at week 9 by the numbers:
43 = Number of players who missed game time due to injury.
4 = Number of players placed on season-ending IR.
We have officially hit the halfway point of the season! Coming off of a record low number of injuries in week 7, I must have jinxed the NFL because we saw a record high this week. Sorry, guys… Week 8 by the numbers:
Lucky number seven! Week 7 in the NFL did bring NFL players a bit of luck as this week featured the fewest injuries since we started this party! Week 7 by the numbers:
35 = Number of players who missed game time due to injury.
