Stattleship! Sport Stats API

I’ve been in contact with the team over at Stattleship. They have a cool API that allows you to get various stats for basketball, football and hockey. I used data from that API to create the following data visualization for their blog. The visualization shows the offensive and special team yards gained by each team remaining in the playoffs. The yardage is totaled for the entire season as well as the one playoff game each team played. I’ve displayed the points off of offensive TDs and special teams scoring, and that score is color coded with to wins and loses. A black background is a win, and a white background is a loss.
