NFL football stole the spotlight from the NBA Playoffs, Stanley Cup, MLB regular season, and college football this week as each of the NFL's 32 teams took the field for the first time this season.
In this podcast episode, Professor Mike Lewis assesses the inevitable Tom Brady - Cam Newton comparisons as well as Bill Belichick's willingness to run Cam Newton into the mouth of an NFL defense. As is always the case in Fanalytics, Mike approaches these topics from a unique analytics-focused angle that helps sports fans to understand how sports analysts make in-game decisions.
Then, Mike and I discuss the common in-game decision that played an integral role in determining outcomes of the Rams-Cowboys, Seahawks-Falcons, and Chiefs-Texans games this week.
Mike concludes the episode with a preview of our upcoming webinar speaker series - which kicks off today at 11 AM ET. Skillshot Media CEO Todd Harris is an eSports pioneer. And he's joining us at 11 AM ET to discuss the role of eSports in filling the entertainment void amidst COVID-19.
