Are offenses less efficient in Thursday night games? I took a look at RotoWire:

Thursday Night Stats

I spent some time charting four different stats from Thursday night games since 2009: passing yards, passing touchdowns, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

Here are the results from 2009 through 2012.

Passing Yards

There’s a shocker right off of the bat. In every season since 2009, teams have combined formore passing yards in Thursday night games than all other games.

The numbers are actually pretty drastic, too. In 2010, for example, the offenses playing in the 10 Thursday night games combined for 490.6 passing yards per game – nearly 50 more yards than the overall mark.

See more of the numbers.
