We had some intriguing games in the ninth week of the NFL season, and we also had some interesting scores. Five different games reached 50 total points, and one even hit the 80-point mark. At the same time, we had two games fall short of 40 total points, and one didn't even hit 20.
High-scoring games are common in 2018, but there are always outliers. This is why playing the over/under can be a bit tricky. Factors like scoring trends, defensive matchups, coaching trends and injuries must be taken into account—and even then, a fluke score or turnover can ruin the best predictions.
