Hoist a few at Jerry World

When do they have time to compile this information? A 60-minute game takes less than four hours:

The difference between Dallas and Boston appears to be 0.001% BAC, or about half a 3.2 near-beer. Biggest question in the replies: “What about the Bills?” The answer:

The original 2015 map was a viral sensation, drawing so much attention to the intoxicated activities of Buffalo’s fans that the Erie County Sheriff’s Office responded. It noted that the city had been working hard to clean things up around New Era Field, and our data confirms that. Buffalo, coming in hot at 0.76 BAC for No. 1 back in 2015, eased into 19th place this year, slightly below the league-wide average at .040. And that’s a trend that extends around the league. Average BAC is down from 0.47 to 0.40 compared to 2015. Further, this year’s “winner,” the Cowboys at 0.62, would have only tied for fifth-most intoxicated two years ago. Cheers to responsible drinking!

Not being an NFL fan, I simply question their decimal-point placements in several instances; 0.5 percent should be enough to kill you.

    From what I know of Wisconsin, I am frankly surprised Green Bay isn’t higher.

    The map’s figures seem to be correct; it’s in the edited, fact-checked written copy that the decimal point gets misplaced.

    …and it looks like it’s been fixed there now, too.
