NFL Notes: QBs Staying Healthy, Scoring At Record Levels

The NFL released some interesting info this week about the first five weeks of the season. The league is on a record pace for scoring and a few other areas, all of which involve the Eagles. 30 of the 32 teams have started the same quarterback in each of the first five weeks of the season. That's the highest amount since 27 teams managed to keep their starter after five games in 2003. Despite his injuries, Michael Vick has started every game for the Eagles this season.

The fact that QBs are staying healthy and playing well enough to not get benched might be a reason for the record pace teams are on as far as scoring. Teams have scored 3,566 points so far, which is the most through five weeks in NFL history. It works out to 46.31 points per game being scored.

And of course, it appears to coming through the air. There have been 10 individual 400-yard passing performances from QBs so far this season. That total is the most ever through the first five weeks of a season and already ranks as the fourth-most ever for a whole season. With three more 400 yard performances, it will be the most ever in a single season.

Michael Vick accounted for one of those 400 yard performances in week four against San Francisco. Interestingly enough, the Eagles have yet to give up even a 300 yard passer so far this season.
