The NFL is on a record pace for scoring this season, in large part due to pass-heavy offenses, but Todd Bowles does not necessarily believe that trend will continue.
The Jets head coach told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he expects the game to revert back to revolve around running the ball.
"It'll change back," Bowles said. "It'll recycle itself. Probably not in my coaching career, but it will recycle itself, ... Maybe in the next 10 years, it'll cycle back."
Rule changes protecting players -- particularly hits against the quarterback -- have contributed in the rise of offense and it may be tough to see the game returning to run-heavy schemes.
Through eight weeks this season, the NFL had 5,834 points this season and 429 passing touchdowns -- both records at this point in a single season.
Yet, running the ball is not quite a lost art.
Four of the five top teams in rushing yards made the playoffs last season and the Rams -- who are 8-0 and have the second-highest performing offense in the league behind the Chiefs -- are second in rushing yards with Todd Gurley powering their offense.
"It only takes one team to have success doing that," Bowles added. "It's a copycat league, so everybody will follow suit. Eventually in the next 10 years, I expect that to go back."
