Third/Fourth down and one data

USA TODAY Sports

Accumulated some third and fourth down data with one yard to go.

For one of our postings regarding the team's running backs (which is really a review and preview for the next year), I accumulated statistics on third/fourth and one situations. To obtain those statistics, I went through every game's NFL Game Book on the season and compiled them into a spreadsheet (the things that I do for you...).

Since I'm not planning to do much with them at this point, here's some of the data. Keep in mind, it's entirely generic. There is no interpretation, play-by-play breakdown or NFL ranking. This is for your information only.

  • The Bengals faced 24 third-and-one situations, converting 14.
  • They called 19 runs and five passes.
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran 11 times on third-and-one, converting seven. However, he lost both of his fumbles this year on third-and-one.
  • Andy Dalton had a hand on seven third and one scenarios (sneaks or passes) with five conversions. He was three of five passing (Gresham, Green, Sanu) and successfully converted two on sneaks.
  • Giovani Bernard ran six times, but failed to convert four attempts.
Later during the posting, we added fourth-and-one scenarios. That data:
  • The Bengals faced 10 situations on fourth-and-one and successfully converted seven.
  • They called nine runs and one pass.
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis only converted one fourth-and-one on three rushing attempts.
  • Cincinnati called six quarterback sneaks with Dalton converting four -- Josh Johnson added a conversion in the regular season finale.
  • Giovani Bernard didn't touch the ball on fourth and one.
