NFL Teams Scoring 8.32 More Points Per Game Than They Did At This Point Last Season

After 31 games of the season, teams are scoring 8.32 more points per game than they did a year ago. Some believe the increase in scoring is a result of the new rules protecting offensive players.

“Look at the rules.” veteran Calais Campbell told NBC Sports’ Peter King. “I know the NFL is trying to make the game safer, but the safer they make it, the easier they make it for the offense. Offense makes good TV. The quarterbacks are the rock stars of the league, and they want to protect them. My job’s harder.”
