NFL: The 20 Biggest Shutouts Since the Merger (1970-Present, Regular Season)
Man, there have been a lot of lopsided victories in the NFL this season, prompting some serious interest in posts on football shutouts and blowouts:
In 2014, it all started with that Week 3 Thursday night game between the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Falcons jumped out to a 56-0 lead before the Bucs “closed the gap” to make it 56-14.
Today, Joe Flacco put five touchdowns in the books and the Baltimore Ravens jumped to a 38-0 lead against the (again) Bucs – all in the first half alone. And tonight, the Philadelphia Eagles blanked the New York Giants, 27-0.
And there’s been plenty more beatdowns than that.
So, in the spirit of the season, here’s one more beatdown list for y’all.Follow @VinGetz
