Trivia of the Day – Sunday, August 12th

Moss makes turkeys out of the Cowboys.

In 1983, the Washington Redskins set an NFL record by scoring 541 points. Fifteen years later, the Minnesota Vikings broke that mark by going 15-1 and scoring 556 points. Then, in 2007, the New England Patriots topped Minnesota by going undefeated and scoring 589 points, the most in NFL history.

Last year’s Green Bay Packers scored 560 points, preventing Randy Moss from being a star on the two highest scoring teams in NFL history. But it’s not the Patriots, Vikings or Redskins that hold the mark for most points scored per game in NFL history. New England averaged 36.8 points per game in 2007, but one NFL team in the pre-modern era scored 38.83 points per game.

They’re the subject of today’s trivia question. Can you name the highest scoring team in NFL history?

    My mind went straight to those early 50’s Rams when I got to the question, but for thought 1951 rather than 1950 since they were champions that year. I was close, and then got it exactly after clue 2.

    Rams-1951 Loaded team with two great wide receivers Tom Fears and Elroy Hirsch.

    No hint needed. The amazing that about that team is they their QB platoon sytem produced the first & second-ranked passers, both hall of famers too.
