"49ers Best-Coached Team in NFL According to Efficiency Stats"

"The two key terms the article uses most are 'Scoreability' and 'Bendability', both of which the 49ers rank first in the NFL. <...> Scoreability is defined as: offensive efficiency, measured in Yards Per Point Scored (how many yards needed to score a point). The lower the number, the better. <...> The same efficiency applies to the defense as well, making the opposition go as many yards in a game as possible before scoring. <...> That's why the stat is called 'Bendability'."


"the 49ers are on pace to break the record for Scoreability set by New England in 2007, the year the Patriots went 16-0"

I like stats, and this metric makes sense to me. But the 49ers also have possibly THE BEST special teams in the league, and have been playing the conservative field-position game all season, which makes their scoreability and bendability numbers look better.
