Friday I looked at the success the Seattle Seahawks

have had over the last eight and a half seasons in primetime Jaron Brown Color Rush Jersey , as the team sports the best winning percentage in the entire NFL in games played under the lights during that period of time. That of course led to one commenter asking what many were certainly asking in their head: Why? Is there some magic sauce that allows the team to excel in primetime? Is it Pete’s motivational abilities? Are they vampires that have greater powers once the sun goes down? Odds are it’s nothing more complex than the time zone in which the Seahawks play their home games. Seahawks fans have no issue holding a disdain for road games that start at 10 AM on the West Coast, so would it be that big of a stretch to imagine that late games might favor teams from out west? Well, let’s take a look at how NFL teams have fared in all their games, not just in primetime, over the same period of time that we looked at on Friday. So, here’s the primetime winning percentage and the overall winning percentage for every team. Primetime and overall wining percentage for NFL teams since 2010RkTmW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallRkTmW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallNow, that’s most certainly a whole lot of information to try and digest, so let’s break it down a little. If it’s true that teams that play further west, specifically in the Pacific Time Zone, have an advantage in primetime games, then there should be a noticeable opposite effect of teams that play in time zones further east. In particular, what we’d expect to see is that the teams that play in the Eastern Time Zone would be most likely to underperform relative to their overall record in primetime, with teams in the Central time zone showing less of an underperformance. Well Tre Flowers Color Rush Jersey , let’s break that table down by time zone, and we’ll start with teams that play their home games in the Eastern Time Zone. Eastern Time Zone teams in primetime versus overall winning percentageTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceWhat we see there is that twelve of sixteen, or three quarters, of the teams that play their home games in the Eastern Time zone underperform in primetime relative to their overall record. Moving on to the Central Time zone, we’d expect to see a smaller effect, so let’s look at the nine teams that play there. Central Time Zone teams in primetime versus their overall winning percentageTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceHere we see that five of nine teams that play in the Central Time Zone underperform relative to their overall winning percentage. That’s certainly what we would expect, so let’s keep moving on to the Mountain Time Zone. The Denver Broncos are the only team that play all of their home games in the Mountain Time Zone. However, the Arizona Cardinals, who play in a state that doesn’t observe daylight savings time, play roughly half their home games while on Mountain Time and half on Pacific Time, so I’ve included them in this spreadsheet so the Broncos aren’t so lonely.

Thus, it becomes time to move on to the Pacific Time Zone. Pacific Time Zone teams in primetime versus overall winning percentageTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceTeamW-L% PrimetimeW-L% OverallDifferenceNow David Moore Color Rush Jersey , here the hypothesis runs into a bit of a hiccup, with two of the five teams that play their homes games not conforming to the pattern. However, one of those two teams also happened to play the first six seasons of the sample period in the central time zone. So, what happens if we remove the 2010 through 2015 seasons from the calculations for the then St. Louis, but now Los Angeles Rams? Well, since moving back to L.A. in 2016, the Rams overall winning percentage is .571, while in primetime it is .600, which would hold with the hypothesis. However, the sample size in which they have accumulated that .600 winning percentage is a whopping total of five games heading into the Monday Night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Thus, this is the very definition of a small sample size, and may or may not be indicative of an overall trend. So, while it is far from definitive based on this extremely high level and crude analysis https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com , there certainly seems to be some evidence to the fact that teams from a more westerly time zone may have an advantage when playing a primetime game relative to their eastern brethren. There may or may not be actual fire here, but there is at least enough smoke to dig a little bit deeper and see what we can figure out. Hopefully there is indeed something to this, as the Hawks have two games remaining in primetime - the Week 14 showdown with the Minnesota Vikings that is likely to carry huge playoff ramifications and the Week 16 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both the Vikings and the Chiefs play in the Central Time Zone, so hopefully there’s something to this, and it helps the Seahawks make their way into the playoffs in what many thought would be a rebuilding year. RENTON, Wash. (AP)The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Sebastian Janikowski can solve their kicking issues.The team signed Janikowski on Friday amid a number of moves.Seattle also signed quarterback Stephen Morris to have another arm on the roster behind Russell Wilson. Running back J.D. McKissic and defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson signed their exclusive rights free agent contracts for the 2018 season.Janikowski spent 17 seasons with the Oakland Raiders but missed the 2017 season due to a back injury. Janikowski, 40, has made 80.4 percent of his kicks during his career and holds the NFL record with 55 field goals of 50 yards or longer.Janikowski will join former Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers in the competition to replace Blair Walsh, who was inconsistent in his one season as the Seahawks kicker last year.Morris spent time with three teams during the regular season and was with Washington earlier this offseason before being released this month. Seattle had no other quarterbacks on the roster since Trevone Boykin was released late last month.McKissic developed into Seattle’s third-down running back for part of last season. McKissic appeared in 13 games and had three touchdowns. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry in limited work as a ball carrier, but was most effective as a pass catcher. McKissic had 34 catches, fifth-best on the team.—
