Abstract

Football has become a cornerstone of American culture. Over the last decade it has become the most popular spectator sport to watch. The sports attract men and women of all ages with its combination of high-speed contact, intensity, and variety of strategy. Salary cap limitations and players’ short time in the league creates a constantly changing environment. Rules and regulations like the salary cap, draft seating, and player negotiations are created to keep teams from becoming monopolies and competition even. However teams like the Patriots and Seahawks have seemed to find ways to maintain successful organizations against these forces. While other teams like the Browns and Lions have been symbols for disappointing their fan bases over and over again.

So, is there an equation to success in the NFL, and is defense the key to championships? Well, I have always had some ideas as to what defines a losing and winning franchise in the NFL. This semester I had the opportunity to test my theory and see if there is an equation for success in the NFL.
