Default Re: Three-and-out Percentage - Texans 26th in NFL

To be fair, this 3 & out percentage is not the same as 3rd down conversions. Slightly different. This is the ratio of 3 & outs to total possessions. Right now, I don't think anyone has an idea of how this correlates to anything right now.

The Texans are 26th in this particular stat, the Ravens, 24th.

3rd down conversions is a slightly different story as the Texans ranked 17th & the Ravens ranked 20th (yes, that's 3 spots lower).

You're right, they don't lie, but what do they tell us?
