Lucky? We don't need luck. We have stone hands
 
Interesting article on how chance has affected the 2011 Season. Film study, not opinion.

The luckiest teams in the NFL also sometimes turn out to be the greatest - NFL - ESPN

2. New Orleans Saints (12-3)
Luck percentage: 7.5
Adjusted wins: 11.1
No team has been unluckier in picking off passes. Put it this way: In a stat that tends to average out in a larger sample size, Green Bay picks off almost five times as many passes per attempt. Run the tip drill, New Orleans! The Saints may not win in Green Bay if they get to that point, but on the field, luck aside, they have been pretty close to Green Bay's equal this season.



Newton's Law will apply here, we will not have much luck in the playoffs, so we better be good.

number might be skewed since Rogers NEVER throws ints

That same headline if it were the Saints on this lucky streak:

"Saints on a run of greatness, however luck plays a big part in their success NFL - ESPN"

Yeah. Rodgers. Great. Whatever.

Not knocking your share, xan, great find.
