Continuing with the trend of recent years, play-action was on the rise in 2012, marking the fourth time in five years this has happened. After holding at 19 percent in 2010 and 2011, play-action jumped to 21 percent, thanks largely to the three highest play-action frequencies we’ve seen since we started charting it in 2005.
FWIW, the Broncos were below league-average in YPA on play-action passes in 2011, and in 2012, they had the highest figure (10.6 YPA).
