    The Packers have the third highest scoring differential (offensive points scored vs defensive points allowed), scoring on average 11.2 points more than allowing per game. Heading into the Seattle game, the Seahawks had a -3.0 differential, the Chiefs were even, the 49ers had a -16.0 differential, the Rams a -3.8 differential, and the Chargers are coming in with a -3.6 differential.

    Looking ahead, the Broncos are currently plus 6.8, the Panthers plus 9.2, and the Vikings plus 1.8. The lowly Lions are minus 11.0 along with the pathetic Bears at minus 11.2.

    As we all knew, we are about to hit the hardest stretch in the schedule after the Bye. It will be a good test of our team balance against good teams.

    Attached a .pdf that modifies each team's Margin of Victory for the strength of schedule they've played with regard to their opponents' ability to gather Margin of Victory. Essentially, points are a closed system netting to zero. The netted Margin of Victory measures a team's ability to push away from the natural state of zero taking into account their opponents' ability to do the same thing. Easy schedule SUBTRACTS points from your team's ranking, a hard schedule ADDS points.

    I´m quite sure that in total NFL teams have scored exactly the same amount of points as they´ve allowed. ;)

    Excellent Stat, Thank You!
    I'm wondering if that +0.2 League average has something to do with the ref's inability to call a Lions batted ball out of the endzone after an official review huddle? :sneaky:
