Of those two, though, the 8.9-point figure is more of an outlier than this year's mark. Since the league moved to 32 teams and its current schedule format in 2002, the average margin of victory over the first two weeks of each season has been 11.3 points per game, closer to this year's margin than last year's. In 2011, for example, the average margin of victory was an identical 12.9 points per contest. In 2003, the number was all the way up to 14.8.

Games are closer during the modern era of football than they were during whatever era you might want to classify as the glory days of football. Games during the first two weeks of seasons in the 1970s were decided by an average of 12.0 points per contest. That dropped to 11.5 during the 1980s, but it was back up to 11.9 during the '90s and hung around at 11.5 during the first decade of the 21st century. Since 2010, games in Weeks 1 and 2 have been decided by an average of 10.9 points per contest. Even with 2017's slate of relative blowouts, we're living in an era of more competitive games.

NFL iron on stickers is very interesting.
