Last year we had the Brees/Marino pace to chart. This year, we have another historic offensive mark to monitor.
It's early, but the New Orleans Saints are on pace to set an NFL record for scoring. With 192 points in five games, the club is averaging 38.4 points a contest and is on pace to score 614 this season. The NFL record is 589 set by the 2007 New England Patriots. And lest you think it's out of reach, the Saints still have games left against the Redskins, Rams and Bucs (twice).
The Saints have already posted three of the 10 highest single-game scoring outputs in club history. They're on pace to shatter the club scoring record of 463, set last season. The Saints scored only 138 points in their first five games last season. Previously, the most the Saints had scored in the first five games was 143 in 2002.
