As we consider the value of the pass heavy Spread offense in the NFL, here are the top 5 passing offenses in the league vs. the top 5 rushing offenses in the league. None of the top 5 passing teams appear to be serious playoff contenders (3 of the top 5 probably won’t be in the playoffs) while most of the top 5 rushing teams appear to be poised for a long playoff run or they are in contention to make the playoffs. As much as the game changes, it remains the same. There is no substitute for a good running game. To Spread or not to Spread? What do you guys think our offense should be next season? Top 5 Passing Teams 1. New Orleans Saints 310.2 2. Arizona Cardinals 301.0 3. Denver Broncos 280.5 4. Houston Texans 264.4 5. Philadelphia Eagles 249.5 Top 5 Rushing Teams 1. New York Giants 154.6 2.
