Here is an example of what I will be dealing with:
TOTAL FIRST DOWNS 19 21
By Rushing 11 6
By Passing 6 10
By Penalty 2 5
THIRD DOWN EFFICIENCY 4-11-36% 6-14-43%
FOURTH DOWN EFFICIENCY 0-1-0% 0-0-0%
TOTAL NET YARDS 379 271
Total Offensive Plays (inc. times thrown passing) 58 63
Average gain per offensive play 6.5 4.3
NET YARDS RUSHING 264 115
I can only hope that they were nice and put a leading zero in front of
numbers less than 1.
