From the outside looking in, there’s no doubt that the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are the most ironworkers in the league.
But the truth is, those teams are far from alone.
A study published in the March issue of Applied Physics Letters found that teams that are known for their ironworking prowess have the highest average productivity in the NFL.
It is a stark contrast to the rest of the league, which has a much higher average productivity.

Here’s a look at the five NFL teams with the highest productivity over that span.
