Cowboys’ 2012 Penalty Rate Again Among Worst in NFL

At NBC, I broke down the Cowboys’ continual struggles with penalties.

While players often get away with penalties and, on the flip side, commit infractions that aren’t flagged all the time, the fluctuations tend to even out such that the teams committing the most fouls really do get penalized the most over the long run. That’s apparent in the fact that the same teams—*cough* the Cowboys *cough*—are continually among the league leaders in penalties.

Dallas was at it again in 2012, racking up 7.4 penalties per game—third-worst in the NFL. Think penalty rate isn’t a consistent stat? Well, in the past six seasons, the Cowboys have now ranked 30th, 28th, 27th, 29th, 32nd, and 28th in penalty rate. That’s remarkable.

Check it out at NBC.
