....HAS THIS FLOWN UNDER THE RADAR?... I dont know what the average number for team first downs in an NFL game, but my guess that the "average" would come in at UNDER 20. Today the Pats had 35, but that is not ALL that, IMO, is amazing. Last week they had 33 for a two game total of 68. Most teams dont get that amount in FOUR games. Does anyone know if there is an NFL record kept for number of first downs in a two game period, back to back?
