NFL Time of Possession 2021

Time of possession is the amount of time an NFL offense has the ball. While the time of possession isn't necessarily something that leads to wins, it does indicate teams doing positive things within a game. If a team has a high time of possession, chances are they are building long drives, getting first downs, but also forcing turnovers on the defensive side or forcing three-and-outs. Of course, you can have all the possession in the world, but putting up points is what will win games. We have seen time of possession be valuable in certain games, as teams have focused on keeping elite quarterbacks off the field. There are quick-scoring offenses that rank lower in time of possession because they score so quickly. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are a perfect example of that, as they rank in the middle of the league in time of possession. Flip through and see how teams are doing each season, and also how their time of possession changes when at home compared to on the road.
