2015 Pats join '07 Pats, '09 Saints as only teams to average 35+ PPG to begin season
The 7-0 New England Patriots are kicking all kinds of tail, and they're officially in the rarefied air of the greatest offensive attacks in the history of football.
There are plenty of statistics to pull from, as well as just using your eyeballs to see that Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis are on a level of their own, but there's one that places the '15 Pats with only two other teams in league history.
With their current points per game average sitting at a ludicrous 35.6, the '15 Patriots are just the third team in NFL history to average more than 35 ppg through the first seven weeks of a season. The 2007 Patriots averaged 39.9 points through their first seven games, while the 2009 Saints averaged exactly 39 ppg. Both teams ended up in the Super Bowl that season.
With the Washington Redskins next on the docket, and with 10 days to prepare for head coach Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, don't expect that average to drop anytime soon.
@Patriots are the 3rd team in NFL history to start season while averaging more than 35 ppg. Previous two: Saints (09), Pats (07), both in SB— Sportige (@Sportige) October 30, 2015
