Struggling offenses lead to the lowest-scoring week in the NFL since 2014
The NFL hadn’t experienced a week of inept offenses like it did this past weekend in nearly a decade
The NFL hadn't experienced a week of inept offenses like it did this past weekend in nearly a decade.
With superstar quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen unable to generate even 20 points in their games, top defenses for Cleveland and the Jets shutting down high-powered attacks from San Francisco and Philadelphia, and young QBs struggling across the league, the NFL had its lowest-scoring week since 2014.
Teams across the league scored an average of just 18.4 points in Week 6 for the lowest-scoring week in the NFL since Week 15 of the 2014 season when teams averaged 18.2 points.
Only two teams — Miami and Jacksonville — scored at least 27 points for the fewest in any week since the 1995 season. The 23 teams held to 20 points or fewer were the most in any week ever in the NFL.
