Do you think you can separate the good NFL teams from the bad by looking at how much they’ve been penalized? If so, you are wrong.

It is true that few things make you, the average NFL fan, want to pull your hair out more than a stupid, unnecessary, untimely penalty. Personal fouls, offsides, false starts—they all make you want to kick a puppy.

Today we’re going to take a look at the 10 most penalized teams in the NFL in 2013 and see if there’s any correlation between success (or failure) and penalties, and the results may surprise you.

Take a look.
