Four games, Four stats: All You Need to Know

January 05, 2009 | Brian Billick

Looking at last weekend’s Wild Card games, how much would you have given to look at just four numbers?  If you were able to see just these four stats, and nothing else — not total yards, time of possession, 3rd down conversions etc. — just these four numbers, how much would you have been willing to bet on the outcome:

Atlanta vs. Arizona: Matt Ryan attempting 40 passes

Philly vs. Minnesota: Adrian Peterson rushing for 80 yards

Baltimore vs. Miami: Chad Pennington throwing 4 interceptions

Indy vs. San Diego: Colts rushing for just 64 yards

Knowing this would you have not bet the house on the outcome?
