Extra Points

Back in 1976, the Super Bowl champion Steelers were favored over the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a game by 24 points, heretofore the greatest point spread in NFL history. Tonight, the New England Patriots are favored over the Philadelphia Eagles by that same margin of 24 points. That's how good the Patriots are -- they make an average team (the Eagles are 5-5) look like a first-year expansion club.

The Steelers, by the way, covered, winning that game 42-0.
