Just a reminder that Pats/Rams is in London this week. Adjust your prognostications accordingly.

I could research the past years games but that would require work. General feeling is offenses slow down a bit on the pitch, but I'm probably wrong.

I think you're on to something. Have you ever seen a high scoring soccer game?

I watched one soccer game in my life. It went to double overtime tied 0-0. That was enough to keep me away from soccer. Although I fully endorse hooliganism and tomfoolery in general.

Here's a nifty little infographic on the past games I found on reddit:

I can't really glean anything fantasy-worthy, except that the games typically end up being pretty normal (meaning ASYS stays valid at the very least).

The high powered offenses like the Saints, Pats, and Chargers of yesteryear did just fine.

I seem to remember from last year they've made a lot of strides to improve the field.

I don't expect it to be an issue.

it wasn't the highest scoring but it was pretty funny to see Portugal beat North Korea 7-0 in the WC in 2010.

2 safeties in 5 games. Weird.
