Teams set TD record in first 2 weeks

NFL fans are seeing plenty of scoring so far this season.

There have been 172 touchdowns, the most in the first two weeks of any NFL season. A total of 1,502 points have been scored.

Quarterbacks are launching the ball, with a record 15,771 net passing yards through the first two weeks.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has thrown for over 400 yards in each of the first two games this season, joining Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton as the only players in NFL history to accomplish that.

Brady has now thrown for 940 yards total this season, the most by any player in a team's first two games in NFL history and five yards short of Phil Simms' NFL record for pass yards in consecutive games (945 in 1985).

Newton on Sunday broke the record for single-game passing yards by a rookie (432 yards), one week after tying the record in his NFL debut.

Of the 32 games played this season, the winning team scored fewer than 21 points in just one: the Jacksonville Jaguars' 16-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that's the lowest total through the first two weeks of any season since 1970, when the AFL and NFL merged.

In 2010, 15 games were won by teams scoring 21 or fewer points through two weeks.
