.@Saints @drewbrees on his magical night with this throw he breaks the all-time passing record of #PeytonManning . The most difficult part of the throw was which open receiver to throw it too. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/M2krEfFYTT— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) October 9, 2018
2018 New Orleans Saints: 3.39
2018 Kansas City Chiefs: 3.38
2007 New England Patriots: 3.37
2016 Atlanta Falcons: 3.06
2011 Green Bay Packers: 3.05
If we count the half-seasons from the Saints and Chiefs, these are the only five teams to ever average more than a field goal per drive.
It is interesting to see that none of the other three teams on this list won the Super Bowl, although Atlanta and New England both made it there. Unfortunately for them, there's no real correlation between this and winning a championship, even though the other three teams were all No. 1 seeds.
While the Chiefs and Saints may have the honor of being on this list, the Rams are still third in the NFL at 2.90 PPD, and they actually lead the NFL in net PPD at 1.06 -- net includes the team's defensive PPD, meaning the Rams have a far superior defense to the Chiefs or Saints.
Even though the Chiefs and Saints have historic offenses, it might still be the Rams who lift the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the year.
