Two-Minute Offense Best In NFL

One of the most important aspects of what offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg calls "situational football" is the two-minute offense. Scoring at the end of the first half can often be a boon for the team's momentum, and any points scored at the end of the second half will certainly be closely-tied to the outcome of the game.

Of course, the Eagles set a franchise record for points scored this season, and their ability to put up points was mirrored by their performance in the two-minute offense. In fact, the Eagles were the most productive two-minute offense in the NFL this season.

The Eagles had 25 possessions inside the final two minutes of either half. Of those 25 drives, Philadelphia scored 49 points, the highest total in the NFL. Here's a look at the league leaders for points scored in the two-minute offense.
