We’ve got about a month left in the regular season, so we feel it’s appropriate to break down the teams and find out which have the best offenses so far. Perhaps this information will help you decide which way to go with your NFL picks.
In terms of total offense, which measures yardage, the New England Patriots are top dogs at 431.9 YPG. Tom Brady is having another fantastic season, having thrown only three interceptions all year long.
Even with injuries to some of his weapons, including Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, Brady has made the best of what’s available to him and has the Patriots primed for another deep playoff run.
Next on the list is actually Detroit, with Matthew Stafford and company accounting for 401.7 yards per game. The Lions have been down quite a few times this season, meaning they’ve had to play catchup. That explains why they’re second on the list.
Rounding out the top five are the Denver Broncos (394.2 YPG), Indianapolis Colts (393.4) and New Orleans Saints (391.3). Peyton Manning has immediately transformed the Broncos offense into a well-oiled machine, while Andrew Luck has been every bit as advertised for the Colts. It should never be a surprise to see the Saints in the top five in total offense.
In terms of scoring offense, the Patriots are also in the top spot at 35.8 points per game, well ahead of every other team. Second place is the Broncos, who are putting up 30.1 PPG.
The rest of the top five include the Houston Texans (29.3 PPG), Saints (28.7) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28.7).
Arian Foster has been an excellent workhorse back for the Texans, while Drew Brees continues to be the heart and soul of the Saints offense. You know New Orleans is always going to score at least a few touchdowns when Brees is under center.

The Patriots blew out the Jets, 49-19, on Thanksgiving night in New York. Following the game, Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork and Steve Gregory were awarded Player of the Game honors. They were presented with John Madden's favorite Thanksgiving day meal: the turducken (a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey), following the game.
Tom Brady couldn't believe what happened. Neither could Bill Belichick, nor the rest of the New England Patriots, for that matter.
They were up 7-0 on the New York Jets one minute, and 28-0 the next. Literally.

For nearly a decade, the Patriots have been known as a pass-first team on offense. That strategy isn’t going to change anytime soon. But the emergence of a sound and productive running game has at least shifted the offensive method in New England.

The opening segment of CSNNE’s postgame is always entertaining as I await how Felger and the Lettermen are going to spin the latest Patriots win.
They did not disappoint last night, leading off with how the Patriots 49-19 was not a product of anything they did, but simply the Jets handing it to them, and that there was nothing really impressive with what the Patriots did.
