Breakdown of 1st and 2nd Half Scoring 2011 and Historically


Much has been made this season of the differences in offensive production observed in the first and second half of the game.

I don't recall if we have discussed whether or not the scoring disparity is normal given what we have seen over the last few seasons. So I decided to take a look. The schedule below shows the breakdown of rushing and passing touchdowns by half over the last five years and the total points scored by half to date this year.
