While watching the Saints/Seahawks game today I got to thinking about dominant defenses holding dominant offenses to low totals. Then got to thinking about the general idea of the difference between what a given team scores vs. the average allowed by their opponents and vice versa. Sure, we know how many points a team scores on average, but how many more points do they score vs the average allowances of their opponents?
This is a pretty straight forward calculation, obviously. And if you smush the 'relative score' together with the real score, you get what I'll simply call 'Adjusted Score' which is more or less a strength-of-schedule adjusted scoring for/against chart and is, perhaps, interesting.
I took the liberty of whipping this up and uploading it to the GZL. Hopefully Anthony and his bro don't mind me doing that.
