The New England Patriots’ offense last week scored on six of their nine possessions against the Indianapolis Colts. That comes on the heels of scoring on seven of nine possessions in each of their previous games against Buffalo and St. Louis. So the obvious question is: What’s wrong with the Pats offense?
Seriously, scoring on 20 of their last 27 possessions puts New England’s offense in the upper echelon of NFL offenses. In fact, the Patriots remain in the top spot in the weekly NFL POP Score rankings with a 2.69 mark. To make matters worse for NFL opponents, the Patriots last week added two touchdowns via their defense and another on special teams. A dynamic offense and TDs from the defense and special teams could give the Patriots a big advantage as we head to the playoffs.
The New Orleans Saints’ offense is the new number two in these rankings with a 2.2 POP Score. The Saints offense has scored on 10 of their last 20 possessions and their second place ranking is the highest the team has been in the rankings this season.
