Key stats for NFL 2021 (via AFC-NFC Championship Games)

The NFL entered its first 272-game regular season. It started with a Thursday night matchup when the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers edged the Cowboys in Tampa, 31-29. It ended with a 35-32 victory in overtime on Sunday night by the Raiders in Las Vegas against the Los Angeles Chargers.

All told, there are a lot of numbers when it comes to football. And it’s always interesting to keep tabs on home-field advantage in the NFL. In 2019 and 2021, home teams only finished nine games above 0.500. In 2020, did COVID-19 and low or no stadium attendance result in a 127-128-1 rating for home clubs?

Here are the final numbers for the regular season, as well as the 2021 AFC-NFC Championship Games.
