My latest Running the Numbers article is a look at a recent increase in deep passes from the Cowboys, particularly to Dez Bryant.

In the Cowboys’ first six games, the average pass to Bryant traveled just 10.2 yards past the line-of-scrimmage. Since Week 8, however, the average distance has been 14.7 yards, including a three-game stretch of 20 targets with an average distance of 18.1 yards.

It’s no wonder that after averaging 63 yards and 0.33 touchdowns per game through the Cowboys’ first six games, Bryant’s totals have improved to 100 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game since that time. Bryant’s lone lackluster performance over the past month was in Atlanta, where he saw just one deep target.
