Through two weeks, 19 of 32 games (59.4%) have been decided by seven points or fewer. That’s the most at this point of the season in NFL history.
If seven games were to be that close this week, that would break the NFL record of 26 such games through three weeks, set in 1988.
Several 0-2 teams can say they were oh so close to being 2-0. Cleveland, for instance, has lost two games by a total of five points. St. Louis has lost them by six, Detroit by eight and Minnesota by nine.
