The Philadelphia Eagles are etching their names into NFL history, evoking a bygone era when they last enjoyed a football dynasty back in the 1940s. While the Eagles are currently rewriting the record books with their impressive running game, they are also establishing new historic milestones in the realm of final scores.
In a remarkable turn of events, the Eagles secured a 25-11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, marking the creation of a “scorigami” – the 1078th distinct final score in NFL history. Prior to this Monday night clash, no NFL game had ever culminated in a 25-11 final score.
Interestingly, this Week 3 witnessed a second instance of scorigami, as the Miami Dolphins achieved a resounding 70-20 victory over the Denver Broncos, a final score that was equally unprecedented. This becomes more intriguing when considering that there have been only three other occasions in league history when a team managed to score 70 points in a single game. The 25-11 final score was indeed distinctive, yet it was hardly in doubt as the Eagles effectively controlled the game’s final 9 minutes and 22 seconds.
Philadelphia even advanced deep into Tampa Bay’s territory late in the game, with the potential to score a touchdown. Had they succeeded, a final score of 31-11 or 32-11 (assuming a successful extra point) would still have qualified as a scorigami.
Beyond their historic final score, the Eagles left their mark by dominating the ground game. Over their last two games, they outpaced their opponents by an astounding 460-69 in rushing yards, marking the most significant rushing yardage margin (+391) in a two-game stretch for the franchise since 1949. Furthermore, they achieved the rare feat of accumulating over 200 rushing yards in consecutive games, ranking third in the NFL for rushing yards by any team in the first three games of a season.
Scorigamis is becoming increasingly elusive, but the combination of 11 points by one team continues to offer opportunities for creating truly unique final scores.
