NFL Y2K PCA

NFL Y2K PCA

This article, created by authors Richard A. Levine and Mitchell Watnik of the University of California, Berkeley, describes a dataset on the 2000 National Football League (NFL) regular season and the exploratory data analyzes performed. Levine and Watnik uses "principal component techniques" to evaluate each team, thus assessing their strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes they simply compare a team's office versus their defense. In other instances, they compare a team's production to that of their opponents. This is a great lesson for anyone interested in the statistics associated with the National Football League.
