While most people love to look at yards, I tend to look at total points scored.
Net points is total points scored - total points given up.
Granted, Net points doesn't mean everything, but it's a good indication of where a team is at. Right now The 49ers!!! are 3rd, with (a fitting) 49 more points scored than given up.
They are also 6th in total points scored, although the Viking and/or Packers could knock them down to 7th or 8th tomorrow night:
Who would have thunk that???
I still think the AFC goes through Baltimore; they could have easily won that game today.
The Cowboys are looking very mediocre, while the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints continue to roll.
It's getting interesting!
