Unlikely. That Ravens team faced inept offense after inept offense. We actually face quite a few good offenses this year. But we still have a chance to be way up there in the record books - which IMO, might be just as impressive an accomplishment considering the level of quality of the offenses some teams had to go against (in particular Baltimore in 2000 - the expansion Browns? The hopeless Bengals? The Steelers offense wasn't so great back then either.).
You can look at say 190-200 points allowed as 165 adjusted for NFL inflation.
In all honesty, all the crap about the modern day passing rules and needing elite QBs to win.........definitely wasn't an issue when other teams scored 10 points a game. We could go undefeated if our D kept scoring to just 10 points a game, with LAST YEAR's offense, lol...
Last year the most we allowed in regular season was 27 points by Dallas. This year in our two losses, 24 and 26 points....
Doubt it is worse than that this season. Playoffs a team may hit 30+ on us....maybe.
