Who has the most dangerous offense in the NFL
There are a handful of teams that could make the case for having the best offense in the league this year. The Kansas City Chiefs and their lethal passing attack, the Los Angeles Rams and their balance, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wicked scoring are all worthy of conversation.
Being the best and most potent offense in the NFL isn’t an easy thing to do. With so many great players like Patrick Mahomes, Todd Gurley, and DeSean Jackson lighting it up for their teams, they are always a threat to bring offensive success to their teams.
There are so many variables that can be used to calculate and convey as to who is the best offensive team. So many things need to be considered from overall scoring, and yards, all the way to keeping sack pct down, and the teams efficiency. Looking at the league on the whole, VegasTopDogs
will examine the top offensive teams and what they bring, and who is the best and most lethal monster that teams get concerned when they see them on the schedule. And on the Sunday afternoon, you know what you are stuck dealing with.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
The end result and driving goal of any NFL offense is to move the football effectively and score lots of points, with putting up 34ppg. The Bucs are a huge threat. So what better way to determine the most dangerous offense, than to examine the Buccaneers and their powerful scoring ability? Tampa Bay has put up the top passing yards/game and 34 pts/game over 3 games this season.
Tampa Bay beyond just being very good moving the ball, they take care of the ball really well. The Buccaneers also have a great and highly unexpected WR and QB connection – with 36 year old Ryan Fitzpatrick and fellow veteran WR, 32 year old DeSean Jackson, which has been a ton of fun to watch their rejuvenation. They lack any significant RB and a good running game, but they make up for it with sure handed O.J. Howard at TE, along with a strong OLine. Tampa Bay are great at devouring yards, and a revamped DeSean Jackson is making them extremely explosive, and has been making some big plays. And of course, we cannot forget the sure handed Mike Evans, he and Jackson are racking up massive yardage on the field, as the duo are a consistent threat to anyone they play. There guys have been generating some takeaways, as well, which gives the Buccaneers some good field position because of it.
Who wouldn’t like to have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense so far?
Los Angeles Rams
There is an awesome balance on the Los Angeles Rams offense that’s not really seen through a whole lot of teams in terms of play calling and passing attempts to rushing attempts, but in different areas of moving the ball, and still calculating yards. QB Jared Goff has thrown for over 1400 yards and 11 TDs, and has completed a whopping 72% of his pass attempts. Many fans would love to have the Los Angeles offense taking the field for them. With Goff and steady TD threat, Todd Gurley – doing what they do, what fan in their right mind, wouldn’t feel super confident
with them stepping on the gridiron?
One of the purest determining factors of the Rams making a genuine case to having the best offense in the NFL, is that they are 2nd the NFL in takeaway ratio at a +4 this season. They lead the league in avg net yards per drive at 46.9 – as they are great keeping the ball moving, and then they take it away, 2 winning combinations. One may immediately think that puts them as a prominent team based solely on defense, but it also directly points to an effective offense, that doesn’t turn the ball over a lot.
Kansas City Chiefs
Simply put, when an offense is able to move the ball on the ground and throwing through the air with the ridiculous ease that they are – and not turning the ball over, it’s obviously efficient. The Kansas City Chiefs are ahead of the rest of the league with their scoring prowess. When most teams are running passing plays and a lot of their offensive plays are run from some sub package formations, the Chiefs still get big plays from relatively standard formations. The Kansas City Chiefs have put together a receiving corps of excellence with numerous skill sets that are perfect for all of their packages with a lethal passing game for game situations.
most dominant TE, Travis Kelce, is coming off one of his most productive TD scoring season that he has had in 2017 – in his 6 year career. He leads this team in receptions, is 2nd in TDs, and is corralling 76 YDs/game. Kansas City would not be quite the high octane offensive team that they are without Kelce, and a new career high in TDs is likely, if all goes as it looks to be going.
Tyreek Hill is a very gifted, well rounded WR without any obvious weakness. He is the speed engine that makes this top ranked offense go on every Sunday. With him pumping along, explosive running option, Kareem Hunt, and Sammy Watkins are more than adequate enough as other options to move the ball for them.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are several notches below the Chiefs in the best offensive team category. The Kansas City Chiefs have turned the ball over even less than the Buccaneers and they have a younger more believable crew for the long haul than the Bucs have, which is why they are the biggest juggernauts when it comes to being dominant on the field. They are also better than the offense of the Rams, and they have proven it with having not scored less than 38 in a game yet and a higher pct of drives to end in scores.
There’s a reason the 23 year old, Patrick Mahomes has gotten so much well deserved attention, with 896YDs, a 67% completion rate, and a league leading 13 TD passes after just 3 games – he has been mind blowing to watch pass the ball. His gutsy sling into the end zone plays, and darting passes will fail (eventually) at times, but as of right now, he has been nothing short of magical. And with their passing attack, a running threat, and a well disciplined WR crew, the Chiefs are to be watched with very wary eyes as their firepower and scoring efficiency continues to grow.
