The most subjective defensive stat is the assisted tackle. With this said, this is the particular stat we will be scrutinizing in this feature.
The key listed below is based upon the average amount of assisted tackles awarded per game by each home scorekeeper (both teams combined). The range within the key was determined by taking the average amount of assisted tackles awarded by home scorekeepers across the entire NFL last season (34) and adding +/-10 to it to get an average span. Anything above or below that average span is considered above average or below average, respectively.
45+ = Above Average
24-44 = Average
23 and Under = Below Average
This article will be updated every Tuesday during the regular season to reflect the most up-to-date tackles issued. However, scorekeepers rarely change their tendencies over the course of the season and thus the trends that we currently are witnessing are likely to remain for the entirety of the season.
