Depending on which scorecard you use, the statistics are shown for both teams participating in the contest. Passing statistics usually detail the quarterback's number of pass attempts, the number of pass completions, passing yards, interceptions and passing touchdowns. Some scorecards also make note of how many times the quarterback was sacked and the quarterback's completion percentage.

Rushing statistics include the number of carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. The yards per carry are sometimes also noted. Receiving statistics include the number of receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, with yards per catch sometimes also noted.

At the bottom of most scorecards is where the game's scoring summary is found, noting each field goal and touchdown scored in the game, as well as which players were involved in the scoring play and how much time was on the game clock when the scoring play occurred. Some detailed scorecards also take note of how many penalties are assessed against each team and how many yards they lost. Punting and kicking statistics are given brief consideration, if any at all.
