The #7 showed up in 18.4% of all games played.  19.2% of the time the winning team showed a 7.  17.7% of the time the losing team showed a 7.

The #0 was next on the list, showing in 16.9% of games played.  The winning team only saw this number 10.9% of the time, but losers saw a zero in 22.9% of games played.

The #s 3,4 & 1 all showed up in between 10% and 14% of games played.

You will want to stay away from 2s and 5s as they showed in less than 5% of all 266 NFL games.

The 10 playoff games this year have brought mainly 3's (5 times) with 0, 4, 6 & 7 each coming 3 times.  Never once did a playoff game produce a 1, 8 or 9 for a final score!
