Sure, improvements could be made, but the Eagles land among the NFL's top five teams when we measure average points per game. We won't complain.

The 'these guys aren't quite in the cellar' tier

Though no one expected these teams to win the Super Bowl, we could argue that at least three of them (the Tennessee Titans, the Chicago Bears, and the Cleveland Browns), have no logical excuse for putting up fewer than 20 points per game. Did you see how much money Deshaun Watson is making?

He missed Week 4's game. That's still no excuse for the Browns scoring 19 points per contest. We'll see what happens with the first-overall selection in Carolina.

24. Carolina Panthers - 16.8
23. Tennessee Titans - 18.0
22. Chicago Bears - 18.8
21. Cleveland Browns - 19.0

The 'who really expected these guys to be good?' tier

20. Jacksonville Jaguars - 20.0
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 21.0
18. Arizona Cardinals - 22.0
17. Washington Commanders -22.3
16. Minnesota Vikings - 22.5
15. Houston Texans - 24.0

Here sits a handful of teams that always seem to fall into one of three categories: Cursed... not good enough... too poorly run to ever be consistent factors. You can argue among yourselves over who belongs where.
