Advanced stat highlights Bills punting woes

 

The Buffalo Bills had punting problems this season.

 

Whether it was Shawn Powell or Brian Moorman at punter, the Bills lagged behind the rest of the NFL. They finished 30th in net punting yards (36.1) and 31st in "Punt Expected Points Added," a metric that tracks punt team performance.

 

Punt EPA, as explained by ESPN Stats & Information's John McTigue, is a measure of the impact of each play on a team’s potential points based on 10-plus years of NFL play-by-play data. If a team nets positive EPA on a play, that means they did something to improve their chances of scoring. If they net a negative EPA, that means they did something to hurt their chances of scoring and/or improve the other team’s chances of scoring.

 

In this case, the Bills had a minus-19.6 EPA on punts, which meant that their opponents were expected to score 19.6 points more than they would on an average.
