More about Team Time of Possession Statistics

There is a correlation between teams with a greater time of possession and winning the game, mainly because it's better to have your offense on the field more than your defense.  The other reason winning teams typically end with a higher time of possession is because they run the clock out towards the later stages of a football game.
