    The NFL's Next Gen Stats are collected using RFID chips embedded in player equipment and the ball, and sensors all around the field.

    As for how the "maximum speed" is calculated, as others have not so helpfully pointed out, speed = distance divided by time. So there's no such thing, really, as "instantaneous speed", but no doubt they use the distance over smallest time increment possible with their measuring equipment, probably averaged over a few readings to correct for lack of precision in any given measurement. I'd guess a player would need to sustain the "top speed" for less than a second, maybe less than half a second.

    Ah, thx Dave. I knew there had to be some way they determine that speed. I was really curious as to how. So, they use a chip in the ball (I actually missed that most important tidbit when first reading your post-thinking helmet somehow smh:confused:).
    Thx, again

    NFC East poised to finish as the worst division ever

    Currently the four teams in the NFC East are a combined 6-19-1, a .250 winning percentage. After Dallas and Washington play each other on Sunday, that record will “improve” to 7-20-1 (or 6-19-3, if Dallas-Washington ends in a tie). That’s a winning percentage of .268.

    Jackson should just give it up. For every minute he plays he spends about 10 on IR.

    Apparently they have chips in the shoulder pads as well. And "Ultra-wideband receivers track the players and ball movement down to the inch."

    While Andy Dalton is in the NFL’s concussion protocol, the #Cowboys aren’t likely to sign another QB. They have two others on their roster, and with the COVID-19 waiting time to join a team, it may not make sense before Sunday, anyway.

    #Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey is considered a long-shot to play Thursday vs. the #Falcons, source said, but they haven’t ruled him out and he’s pushing to play. He’ll work his way back into practice and see if he can make enough progress.
