Team Touchbacks Per Game: 2016 NFL Season

This is a listing of the average amount of times per game that a team kicked through the end zone for a touchback either by way of punt or kickoff. Touchbacks occur when the kicking or punting team kicks the ball into the endzone and becomes dead behind the goal line either by going out of bounds, touching the endzone or by being fielded but not progressed by the receiving team.

When a touchback occurs, the team receiving the ball is awarded the ball at their 20 yard line and begins their first set of downs at that spot.

More about Team Touchbacks Per Game

Touchbacks per game gives some indication to the strength of the kicking team and their ability to place the ball into the endzone to prevent the running back of the ball. This number can be dependant on the quality of the kicker as well as the home field with some fields (Denver) having an advantage to kicking the ball far with relative ease. Additionally, this can point to the strategy of the team to kill the punt/kickoff before it is able to be returned.
