We’ve been following the players and teams. Let’s take a step back and tally up the numbers so far. How many articles have been written, who was the most covered person?
September is still tops. Since the start of the season, there have been 185,683 news articles published; with a single-month high of 171,117 articles in September; a single-week high of 53,438 articles September 15-21; and a one-day high of 9,431 articles on September 19.
People with the Most Buzz
Running down the list of most talked about people in the NFL shows Roger Goodell, Ray Rice, and Adrian Peterson leading the way. As mentioned earlier, this is not for good reasons. After the top three, six of the remaining seven slots are dominated by quarterbacks. Manning received a large amount of coverage due to his historic touchdown pass. Brady has received a large amount of coverage due to his ups and downs in performance this year.

AMEC Measurement Week took place in September across five continents and 49 countries, with 80 hours of learning and discussion. The goal, according to the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC), was to create a better understanding around the latest thinking in measurement and analytics. Following on the heels of Measurement Week, the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) conference last month featured a pre-conference PRSA/AMEC Measurement Symposium.
There’s tremendous pressure from all sides for PR and marketing to demonstrate value to the business in terms that the business can understand. That means showing impact on business outcomes versus AVEs (advertising value equivalency).
The question is how, not why
Everyone agrees that measuring impact would help communications professionals hone their efforts and justify PR strategies to stakeholders. The problem is that many PR professionals and communications leaders are still challenged with exactly how to measure the effect of their efforts on outcomes (Barcelona Principle #2) such as customer sentiment or share price.

Quarterbacks are dominating the NFL media coverage, as shown below in the pie chart of the top 10 most mentioned people. Only one player, DeMarco Murray, is not a quarterback. Tony Romo leads the coverage with his injury, and Peyton Manning and Tom Brady round out the top three after their matchup Sunday night.
With the NFL looking to expand its reach to a worldwide audience, let’s see how many NFL stories are showing up around the globe. The US had over 100,000 articles published in the past 31 days, and the UK figures reflect about 3% as much coverage. Another interesting fact is the expansion of NFL articles into Africa and Asia. The quantity of articles are still low in other countries, but the NFL may be making progress tapping into new markets.

Last Sunday Peyton Manning broke the NFL’s record for career touchdown passes when he threw number 509 to Demaryius Thomas. The resulting media coverage was significant! Peyton dominated the trending searches in Google. To put the coverage on Peyton into perspective, let’s look at another news topic that was trending at the same time; Apple’s release of iOS 8.1.
Apple is no stranger to huge amounts of coverage, but in this case football ruled the day. Peyton’s peak of 254 articles in an hour more than doubled iOS 8.1’s 124 articles. However, not everyone was as thrilled with Peyton as with the new iOS. Following is the sentiment breakdown surrounding Peyton and iOS 8.1:
iOS 8.1 Sentiment
Comparing iOS 8.1 to Peyton, Apple’s operating system may have received a lower spike in coverage, but their overall media numbers and positive sentiment sacked the quarterback. For more coverage or to monitor your favorite team, check out our free NFL newsfeeds.

Most Popular NFL Teams
Which NFL teams are capturing the most media attention? How much more coverage does a well-performing team receive than a low performer? To find out, I ran a quick search in Newsdesk for NFL teams and then compared their media coverage in the chart below. What surprised me is the evenness of distribution; no team ran away with coverage, and none fell far short. The media seems to do a balanced job of covering everyone.
So let’s look at it another way. By comparing the most covered team vs the least-covered team, we can see that Chicago has higher average coverage and more spikes. The only time Tampa Bay received more coverage than Chicago was in their massive loss to the Falcons on September 18th; hardly something for which they would want to receive massive coverage.
Speaking of the Falcons, it’s the Bears’ turn to play them this week. It’ll be interesting to see how they do and whether their spike in coverage is for positive or negative news. In the meantime, check out our free NFL news feeds and follow the latest coverage on your favorite team.

Big data for competitive intelligence is the massive amounts of public news and information published daily. A rich set of analytics is then applied to the big media data to extract actionable information on your competition.
This may sound like something every company does as a matter of course. Most rely on a hodgepodge of sources cobbled together through press releases and news items from a Google Alert or search results. However, this doesn’t yield the level of detail required to inform strategic business decisions about your brand, messaging, markets, and products. And there’s a high risk of missing out on important information when you rely on manual “listening” and analysis.
With an automated media monitoring and analysis platform, you can gather comprehensive, global competitive intelligence in three easy steps:
Step 1: Determine What You Want to Know about Your Competition
Start by thinking about what you want to know about your competitors. For instance, you could:
- Track which of your competitors’ messages are getting the most traction in the market
- Determine how your brand’s reach compares with that of competitors
- Measure customer sentiment about a competitor’s brand compared to your brand
Step 2: Get the Right Data
Figuring out what you want to know helps identify the sources and types of media data you need for your analysis. The trick is to not miss anything relevant about your competition. Typically that requires gathering data across multiple media types: social media, print, industry news, and broadcast.
Because there are hundreds of thousands of worldwide media outlets churning out news and information every second of the day, a consolidated media monitoring platform provides access to all the media types and sources, while letting you automatically narrow down the results to just those that are relevant to your business.
Step 3: Analyze the Data
When you have a media monitoring and analysis platform that includes real-time dashboards and reporting, you can easily track who is leading the conversation in your market(s), measure share of voice and media attention vs. share price, benchmark and run comparisons against competitors, and evaluate and visualize trends.
One More Optional Step: Get Help from the Experts
Sometimes you may want to take your competitive intelligence a step further with more advanced analytics. If your organization doesn’t have these analytical skills in house, you can turn to a partner with expertise and experience in creating strategic business and competitive insight. Moreover’s experienced media analysis consultants are experts in helping you get the detailed insight you need from media big data.

Several figures within the NFL have recently received a large amount of negative press, including Roger Goodell, Ray Rice, and Adrian Peterson. Below is a chart of the NFL figures with the most negative mentions.
Player with the Most Negative Coverage
Ray Rice is our clear winner for negative media coverage this past week, coming in with 16.67%. Roger Goodell is nipping at his heels with 13.71% of all NFL articles.
Digging into Rice’s personal coverage shows that 26.31% (633 articles) of total coverage on him is negative.
Ray Rice Is More Disliked than Ebola
Ebola is a pretty nasty virus, and right now the media is going a little hype-crazy over what a breakout could mean. Even with its potential to spread and kill people, it has less negative sentiment than Ray Rice. The chart above on Rice shows that 26.31% of the media surrounding him is negative, while the Ebola chart below shows it’s only viewed negatively in 22.86% of its articles. Ray Rice should probably hire a better PR team.
