The Eagles are CRUSHING it in the Second Half

Last week, I brought you a list of second half statistics that I thought were cool about the Eagles. Friend of the blog, Crossing Broad, later picked it up and expanded on some ideas.

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
Eagles 6 58 64
Saints 30 28 58
Seahawks 31 26 57
Broncos 45 13 55
Browns 19 34 53
Bills 26 26 52
Colts 24 27 51
Patriots 44 6 50
Bears 14 34 48
49ers 45 3 48
Redskins 27 20 47
Packers 26 21 47
Falcons 13 34 47
Bengals 25 22 47
Texans 31 16 47
Chargers 23 24 47
Panthers 16 28 44
Cowboys 19 24 43
Cardinals 16 27 43
Jets 31 12 43
Dolphins 10 33 43
Lions 14 28 42
Ravens 10 32 42
Vikings 17 24 41
Steelers 30 6 36
Titans 10 26 36
Bucs 7 24 31
Giants 14 14 28
Raiders 14 14 28
Jaguars 24 3 27
Chiefs 13 14 27
Rams 10 15 25

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.
