Stuffs and Stuff Yards: 2016 NFL Season

A 'stuff' is defined as the defense denying a running play at (or before) the line of scrimmage. Often, this play occurs on short yardage situations when both teams have jumbo packages in the game and are geared up to attack the middle of the line.

Stuffs can be an exciting and game-changing play, and is arguabley as important of a defensive statistic as a sack.
