I’m not much of a television watcher.

I have nothing against it; I just haven’t owned a TV that had cable since I moved out of my parents’ house about seven years ago.

There’s just not a ton of excitement there.

If you feel a yawn coming on just from me talking about those shows, have faith: there is a boatload of excitement every week in the National Football League, and we pinpoint the high-adrenaline marks in this column. We make sure you know not just which plays were the most exciting, but how compelling they were by the data, to boot.
