Passing and rushing are supposed to be a pair of "activities in football" somehow opposed to each other, so instead of a cluster bar graph, I would suggest (surprise!) a tornado graph (back-to-back bar graph). This could be paired with a dot plot of snowfall, and the two graphs sorted in order of snowfall.

If the top three passers and top three rushers were marked in some way with color or asterisks, this graphical table could be directly interrogated to establish whether the text in the caption was a reasonable summary.

Even the Times should have been smart enough not to include an indoor-stadium team like Indy on a chart correlating play calls with weather. The whole idea was dumb to begin with.

HI,

wouldn't it have been better if the original chart was sorted on snowfall levels?
Then it would have looked like the scatter plot but with two dots per team.
