Advanced Football Analytics

Brian Burke

Founded by Brian Burke, Advanced NFL Stats (who just recently changed their name to (AFA) uses real statistical methods–regression, tests of significance, game theory, simulation and other advanced techniques. This isn’t the kind of analysis you get on TV, and it’s not for everyone.

Brian Burke says, “What I’m interested in is analysis. What makes a winning team? Is it better to go for it or punt on 4th and short at the 50 yard line? Which teams are most likely to make the playoffs? How much does luck play a part in any game?” Advanced NFL Stats tries to answer those questions and many others.
