Shortz Era grids with the most answers of each length

Which grids have the most 15-letter answers? Or the most 3s? Here are the top 10 puzzles for each word length.

Puzzles of all sizes are included. Rebus answers are included and expanded to determine word length.
Use the links at the top of this page to change which puzzles are displayed.

Because 15-letter answers are particularly interesting, all puzzles with 9 or more 15s are shown. See Notable Fifteens.
