Most Points Scored in an NFL Season

Which team has scored the most points ever in an NFL season? This is one of the most prestigious NFL records yet it is less available than many others of a similar stature. Many Best Sports Blog community members have been looking for the answer to this question so we decided to go out and find it. It is now part of our series of articles on major NFL records: we find the modern record, let The Best Sports Blog users know it, and then note previous holders of the record and discuss some modern close runs at it. So, the holder of the record for most points scored in an NFL season is:

The New England Patriots. The Patriots scored 589 points during the 2007 season.
Statistically, the Patriot’s 2007 season was arguably the best of all time. After acquiring Randy Moss in the offseason, the Patriots went into 2007 with one of the most talented offensive groups in recent memory. Quarterback Tom Brady, already a first ballot Hall of Fame candidate, threw for nearly five thousand yards and a record fifty touchdown passes. Randy Moss, his go to receiver, caught 98 passes for 1493 yards and an incredible 23 touchdowns. Supported by an all-time defense, the Patriots destroyed opposing teams routinely en route to an 18-0 record and a Superbowl berth.

However, the Patriots were shocked by the New York Giants in the Superbowl and finished the season 18-1. Despite being a record setting team, the Patriots were denied 19-0 perfection and the status of "greatest team in NFL history." Interestingly, the second best offensive team, statistically speaking, of all time, the 1998 Minnesota Vikings, also failed to win the Superbowl. That might be why they say, "defense wins championships."
