Feb. 1 (UPI) -- A new tool allows anyone to chart every touchdown throw and catch from the 2017 NFL season.

The team at Fanatics partnered with the NFL to allow fans to track the deep data. Users can choose the regular season week, game, team name, position and player to find out where the pass was thrown from, where it was caught, the yards traveled, player rankings and more.

The data showed that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady only completed four touchdown passes from outside of the hash marks this season.

Philadelphia Eagles defenders should be eyeing the right side of the field on Super Bowl Sunday when the Patriots get in the red zone. Six of Rob Gronkowski's eight touchdowns this season went to Tom Brady's left side.

The date also revealed that Nick Foles' touchdown passes traveled an average of 32 yards through the air. Carson Wentz's touchdown passes traveled an average of 35 yards through the air, before he tore his ACL and was lost for the season.

Brady's touchdown passes traveled just 28 yards through the air on average.

It also showed that the Buffalo Bills were largely dependent on touchdown receptions in the corners of the end zone, with just two passing scores coming between the hash marks all season. The New York Jets on the other hand, scored 15 of their 17 passing touchdowns on the right side of the field.

While most passers in the league balanced out the field with their scoring production, the Indianapolis Colts were another team with odd results. Colts quarterbacks completed only three touchdown passes that landed in the end zone. The Baltimore Ravens scored 14 of their 20 passing touchdowns to the right side of the field.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw 22 of his 34 touchdown passes into the end zone, while the other dozen were throw to pass catchers who ran it in for six.

Fanatics researchers reviewed every 2017 touchdown pass from NFL Game Pass to compile the data and create the tool.
