STATISTICAL SCORING RULES

SECTION 25 — SCORING DRIVES

A Scoring Drive starts at the Line of Scrimmage of Team A's first play of a series, and ends at the Goal Line if a Touchdown is scored or at the Line of Scrimmage of the last play of the series. The yardage of a successful Field Goal is not included in a Scoring Drive. Penalty plays and kicks are both counted when determining the number of plays in a drive. However, a Convert attempt is not counted in the number of plays in a drive.

All CFL Stats Crews will record Scoring Drives and include this information in the statistical play-by-play reports at the end of each drive. The drive information must include the number of plays, the yardage gained, a description of the scoring play and the total time of the drive.
