It's an interesting "hmm" stat, but not much else.
It's definitely interesting.
But like you said, it doesn't mean what we want it to mean. We've scored a lot of points, we ranked high in T.O.P. But we ranked 26th in 3 & out.
But just because a team did not go 3 & out doesn't mean they scored. They may not have even crossed the 50 yard line.
