Peyton’s favorite WR in week 1 (Analytics-as-a-Service)

A few line lines of Python code, a big CSV file, some help of Python PandasSuricate and about 20 minutes is all it takes to answer the following Question:

The answer is simple: Wes Welker 🙂 See the complete graph below…

Now it would be cool to find a source to stream the data into Suricate (which supports this) and get live up to date charts…but that is for another day.
