Defensive Success Rate (DSR) is the unweighted accumulation of opponent’s offensive success rates for each individual team. Success rate is a measure of how many plays gain 50% of needed yards on first down, 50% of needed yards on second down, or 100% of needed yards on third or fourth down.
Further in DSR stats, a standard down includes all 1st downs, 2nd down with 1-7 yards to go, or 3rd/4th downs with 1-4 yards to go. Meanwhile, passing downs are 2nd & 8 yards or more, as well as 3rd/4th downs & 5+ yards to go. Yardage gained on a QB scramble is considered yards gained on a passing play in the calculation. Offensive kneel-downs are not included.
