"the 49ers lead the league in offensive and defensive efficiency...the amount points scored per yard gained on offense. For example, the 49ers score a point every 10.87 yards they gain. They make effective use of their yards. To further illustrate, the 49ers have gained 1,815 yards so far this season, while the Rams have 1,807 yards of offense. Yet the 49ers have scored 167 more points." How awful is that? I can't even begin to discuss how worthless this statistic is.
