Welcome to The NFL Spider Visualization! The Spider is a new way to visualize the offensive rushing tendencies of every NFL team over the 2008-11 seasons. The thickness of the spider leg represents the number of rushes in that direction for the team. A thicker line means more rushes were attempted to that direction of the offensive line. The length of the spider leg stops on the average yards gained per rush in that direction. You can filter the data by week, season, down, distance, player, or the opposing defense.
