Pretty much every statiscal category seems to lean towards the New England Patriots decimating the Washington Redskins this Sunday, but can these two teams combine for enough points to top one of the biggest totals of the season? The Redskins and Pats total currently sits at 52.0, only the 12th time this season a total would close at or above 50.0.
The previous 11 games this season that have closed with the total of 50.0 or higher have an OVER/UNDER record of 3-7-1.
Of the 11 games to post a closing total of 50.0 or higher, the average combined score has been 46.5 points.
The Patriots have the top scoring offense in the NFL with an average of 35.6 points per game, but their defense is also ranked inside the top 10 in the league in points allowed per game. The Redskins on the other hand are rather pedestrian in both categories with the team averaging 21.1 points per game while allowing 24.0.
Four of the Patriots games this season have seen the total close at 50.0 points or higher with those games carrying an OVER/UNDER record of 1-3 with New England averaging 32.0 points in those games. The higest total the Redskins have seen this season was 48.5 when they visited the Atlanta Falcons in a game that went UNDER.
