I would still like to improve our numbers, though.
In 2006, the Raiders had only 7 TD passes.
In 2000, the Bengals had only 6 TD passes.
In 1998, the Eagles had only 7 TD passes.
In 1995, the Buccaneers had only 5 TD passes.
In 1993, the Bears had only 7 TD passes.
Also surprising is just how many of these teams had solid rushing games. No 1500 yd rushers, but a few 1000+ rushers.
