Bears/Broncos Follow up Data

Nothing serious here folks.  Just a bit of follow up data inquired about in my previous FanPost.  My comment was that the Bears Offense actually outperformed the Broncos Offense based on the Total Points scored.  Bears 375 and Broncos 370. 

There were a handful of comments stating that those numbers were off because they didn't take into account the Special Teams and Defensive points that contributed to those numbers.  Then we had trouble definitively finding those numbers.  Well, here they are and yes that did affect the outcome.  The Broncos Offense DID outperform the Bears Offense.  Bears 345 and Broncos 356.  I think my point remains the same, however, that based on the yards of offense and points per game, the Bears Offense (Orton/Smith) was FAR more efficient/effective than the Broncos (Cutler/Shanahan).

Bears-     23.4 Pt/Game and 295 yrds/Game

Broncos- 23.1 Pt/Game and 395 yrds/Game

Lastly, there were also some inquiries as to how drastic a difference there was in starting field position.  I broke that down as well.
