The Colts are getting .2 yards per rushing attempt more than their opponents normally allow but using the same metric they get .4 less passing yards per attempt. Defensively they allow teams to exceed their normal rushing yards per attempt by .1 and passing yards per attempt by .5. They allow 6.0 yards per play versus teams normally getting 5.7.

The Panthers average 4.4 yards per rush to teams normally permitting 4.0, but get only 6.6 yards per throw to teams normally allowing 7.0 and 5.5 yards per play to 5.7. Carolina allows teams to run the ball giving up 4.3 yards per rush to teams averaging 4.1, but a measly 5.4 passing yards per attempt to 6.7 amounting to holding foes to .6 yards per play below their normal average.
