The explosion in passing yards is not leading to a similar increase in points scored. Passing yards are at 128.4 and points scored are at 113.5. (2006 = 100.0); this is the biggest difference between the two since the start of the 16-game era. There may be more passing yards to be had due to the new kickoff rule pushing starting field position back. The sample size is only 2 weeks; these numbers can, and probably will change.
