Perhaps the most hidden trend of the 2018 season is how the NFL still has an old-school theme.
By old school, I’m talking about the older quarterbacks. Scoring is up to 48.3 combined points per game, highest ever and 3.9 points a game more than last year. Bright coaches such as Sean McVay, Andy Reid and Doug Pederson draw much of the credit. They use run-pass-options, Jet sweeps and tightly run crossing patterns to destroy defenses.
But the old-school quarterbacks from the previous decades are playing at the highest level and shattering records in their own rights. Ten starting quarterbacks remain from the millennial beginning of the decade. Eight of those quarterbacks are averaging 28.25 points a game.
