To celebrate the Eagles epic Week 2 victory over the Colts, I am bringing you a chart.
|Team||First Half Points||Second Half Points||Total Points|
What the chart essentially shows is that the Eagles are really bad in the first half and insanely good in the second half through two games. They are the only team in the league without a first half touchdown, but more importantly, they have 24 more second half points than the next closest teams.
The 58 second half points are more than every team’s total points aside from the Saints who have exactly 58 on the dot.
The Eagles are being outscored 34-6 in the first half but outscoring opponents 58-10 in the second half, good for the fifth best point differential in the league at +20.
if you want to filter the numbers in different columns and such, you could copy the chart into a program like Excel and play around with it.
This is an extremely dangerous way to win, but it shows how explosive Chip Kelly’s offense can be once it gets rolling. Many of the first half mistakes that are keeping points off the board seem like self-inflected and thus correctable wounds.
Imagine what this offense could do if they figure out how to play a complete game.
I know, Chip. The chart tastes good to me too. That’s why I made it.
