Welcome to the official web site of the NFL's Game Statistic and Information System (GSIS). GSIS is used league-wide to capture play and statistical information from every NFL stadium. GSIS produces the NFL's quarterly, half-time and game book reports distributed in the stadium. Information from GSIS also appears on television monitors and scoreboards in many NFL stadiums.
The GSIS Web site has been developed to provide GSIS content to a broader audience of club personnel, broadcasters and print media both at the stadium on game day as well as the rest of the week. The site features GameStats Live, an applet which provides real-time updates of game and statistical information from around the league. The following describes the various areas of the site and how to use them.
