A record 11,985 points were scored in 2013, with games averaging 46.81 points, the highest average in NFL history (46.48 in 1948).

The seasons with the most points scored and highest per-game scoring average in NFL history:

YEAR TOTAL POINTS   YEAR POINTS PER GAME
2013 11,985   2013 46.81
2012 11,651 1948 46.48
2011 11,356 1950 45.88

“This is an offensive league,” says Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator LESLIE FRAZIER. “People like to see points scored, although defensive coaches don’t. You have to try to find a way to slow those offenses down. You have a mindset that you’ve got to score ‘X’ number of points, and then on defense you’ve got to hold a team to ‘X’ number of points to have a chance. But that number, it is rising.”
