Football play-by-play data

May 1, 2012

Brian Burke of Advanced NFL Stats has just released a treasure trove of data for football researchers. ┬áHe’s converted the play-by-play accounts for games to CSV files, going back to the 2002 season.

These files are the first step towards what I hope might become a Retrosheet-like project for football, allowing complex analysis at a level that hasn’t been possible to date.
