Top 4 passing QB - No winning records

The top 5 passing offenses in the league this year are:

 

  1. Dallas - #4 in points per drive
  2. Atlanta - #12 in points per drive
  3. Kansas City - #2 in points per drive
  4. Tampa Bay - #10 in points per drive
  5. LA Rams - #19 in points per drive

3/5 are top 10 offenses and 1 of the remaining is just a tad outside.

 

The combined record of those teams is 29-31.

 

Every year the top rushing teams have the best records. Not because running the ball is more important than passing, but because if you have to pass the ball a lot it's probably because you are behind a lot. If you're running the ball you are winning.

 

Pat Mahomes had the lowest passing yardage of his career over the past 2 games. The Chiefs won both by 7 points and 31 points respectively.

 

You win games with efficient offense and defense. Period. The Cowboys had 426 total yards to our 356 yards. Yet we won because we were efficient on both sides of the ball.

 

I don't know how much more proof you need that this whole talking point is dumb.

I'm not really sure what you're trying to argue here. All I was saying that at least in the case of this season, the top passing offenses coincide pretty well with the top scoring offenses. Scoring more points is better. The top 5 passing offenses is made up of a mix of good teams and teams with good offenses and bad defenses.
