Does anyone know where I can find reliable stats for NFL Defense & Special Teams scoring?
Not fantasy scoring but the actual points these units get in games throughout a season so basically SAFTIES and Interception/Fumble Return TD’s + Kick/Punt Return TD’s?
I thought I found this info on NFL.com but after spending hours collating the stats talking to someone else discovered the info I was using off of NFL.com is flawed/wrong as it does not cover all of this.
Here is the page on NFL.com for these so called defensive scoring Stats: for the 2018 regular season:
Using the Chicago Bears as an example in the chart above for the 2018 regular season… in the above info it says
The Bears had:
1 Kick return Touchdown
1 Interception return Touchdown
1 Blocked Punt return Touchdown
That’s it - yet from running my own fantasy game that scores just defensive points and people having had this unit for the full season I know this is incorrect as the Bears scored
6 TD’s on Defense and 1 Safety this season yet that’s not reflected in NFL.com’s stats above?
So where else can I find this info out for every team if the NFL’s own website is incomplete or down right wrong?
