Data Points: Most total yards per game (2000-2010)

Which NFL franchise has produced the most consistently effective offense of the 2000s?

NFL.com has been ranking the best players since 2000, with the latest installment discussing the greatest offensive lineman of the era. Ironically, neither lineman selected — Jonathan Ogden and Walter Jones — played for franchises ranking in the top 10 for most yards per game throughout the 2000s.

While Jones’ Seahawks had some strong offensive teams, they were nowhere near the Colts. Of course, Indy has been led by the same front man every year of the 2000s, future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning. That makes a huge difference, especially when you consider teams like the Arizona Cardinals, an organization with 12 starting quarterback over that same period of time.

Meanwhile, Peyton’s little brother, Eli Manning, has led the era’s 10th-best offense in the yards-per-game category.
