Rams lead NFL in average starting field position
The Rams’ average starting position is their own 33.3-yard line. That’s the best starting spot in the NFL, which shows A) the impact of the defense forcing seven turnovers and cool smiley how deep the Rams have pinned opponents, thus forcing them to punt from near their own end zone.

For comparison, the 49ers’ average starting position is the 26.5-yard line, which is 21st in the NFL. So the Rams have worked with more short fields and average the 11th-most points per drive (2.1) in the league.

This is an interesting stat and I'm curious to see how/if it changes over the course of the year and how our bend-don't-break philosophy affects it.
Considering that Buffalo never punted, and Arizona had some long drives, i think this is mostly influenced by our turnovers

FWIW, last year our avg starting field position was our own 28.
