Special Playoff Team Viz

I put together a special version of the team stat visualization for the playoff field. It's a good, quick way to get a feel for how each contender compares on offense and defense, in the passing game and in the running game. The first three tabs depict the three key team stats: EPA, WPA, and SR. Two additional tabs break out run and pass EPA production.

What might be particularly useful is the week selector slider. It's handy for isolating recent trends or for isolating subsets of games, such as GB's games with and without a healthy Aaron Rodgers.

The dashed average lines for each stat represent the 2013 overall league average, not just the playoff field. Here's a version below, but a larger version can be found here.

    I am wondering if there is a correlation between the performance of the Packer defense in weeks 2 - 7 and Aaron Rodgers playing. I understand that he also played in week 1 and week 17. In other words, can Aaron Rodgers favorably influence the performance of the Packer defense?

    Thank you for making this wonderful and insightful information available

    Something interesting with the Patriots...
    The offensive and defensive EPA's for New England are opposites. When there defense shows up the offense does poorly, and when the offense does well the defense suffers. This seems to have happened in nearly every week. This also seems to be present in the other playoff teams, but that may just be because that's what I'm looking for. I am curious if this means anything at all, I noticed it and thought it was interesting. Awesome data, thank you.
