Data Points: So much for a relaxing week off

By now, you’ve heard that teams coming off their bye weeks are off to a slow start this season. Just to hammer home that point, here’s a reminder that teams coming off their bye weeks have been at .500 or better in each of the last four seasons.

At 3-9 so far this season, there’s a lot of catching up to do. Of course, if this is to be a downward trend in 2011, that’s bad news for the Bills, Bengals, Patriots, Giants, Eagles and 49ers. Those are the six teams coming off their byes this weekend.
