Since Vikings-Chargers is in the books, here's an update to my post earlier today.â†µ
In the seven completed playoff games so far this year, the average margin of victory is about 19 points. And if you remove the fantastically crazy Cardinals-Packers game last week, the winner scores an average of about 32 points, while the loser scores an average of 10 points. That's more than three touchdowns, folks.â†µ
To bounce things back to acceptable levels, I'm hoping that the Jets-Chargers game is decided by a margin of .001 points. As everyone knows, a touchdown is actually worth 6.0003 points due to negligible market fluctuations, so this could happen.
