Next up are the 49ers. The 49ers points per game average is 26.5. They are giving up 16.3 ppg. Seattle is averaging 23.9 ppg and giving up 23.6 ppg.
The 49ers are scoring a bit more and allowing a bit more than the last time the Seahawks played them. Still, they are leading the league in preventing teams from scoring. If they are going to give themselves a chance to win, the Seahawks will need to find a way to score more than the 7 or 13 they scored in the last meetings. Plus, the defense will need to continue to perform, as they have been for the last four weeks, in holding teams below their average points scored.
The zero line represents the opponent's season average points scored and allowed. The y-axis is also used to show Seahawk's actual game results for points scored and allowed.
Lines & Points
Note: These are team points and averages. They represent team results. They are not strictly offense and defense, although most of the points scored are by the offense and most of the points allowed are by the defense.
Green - Points scored (the green line across the graph is the average)
Yellow - Points allowed (the yellow line across the graph is the average)
Red - Points scored vs opponent's points allowed season average
Blue - Points allowed vs opponent's points scored season average
Thin Red and Blue wavy lines - Moving 4-week Average (MA)
Since there are so few games, the MA lines are just a visual confirmation of what you see with the actual game results. The other types of trend lines give exaggerated results with so few data points (linear, power, logarithmic, etc.).
- 3 or 5 game trends
- Any other thing that can influence the performance.
