TOTAL 2008 NFL TEAM MILES TRAVELED

ROAD GAMES? NO PROBLEM FOR THE GIANTS!

The Super Bowl XLII champion NEW YORK GIANTS won an NFL single-season record 10 consecutive road games last season, going 7-1 in a regular season in which they traveled 15,618 miles.

The Giants’ unprecedented road success, which included a game in London, resulted in a level of confidence and momentum that spurred them on their Super Bowl run.

"We're all we have when we're on the road," said now-retired Giants defensive end MICHAEL STRAHAN (left) during the season. "And it's a long plane trip back when you don’t win. Guys refuse to let that happen. For some reason, the road works for us."

*Air, rail and ground miles are considered in this calculation.

The total distance flown by all teams will be 597,040 miles. This is 43,910 more miles than were traveled last year, when teams traveled a total of 553,130 miles.

  • Seven teams will "travel around the world" at least once (Seattle, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, New England, Arizona and the New York Jets). A trip around the globe is 25,000 miles.

     

  • The SEATTLE SEAHAWKS will travel the most this season, accumulating a total of 34,766 miles. The Seahawks will travel 182 more miles than all the teams of the AFC North combined.

     

  • In the last two years, the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS have traveled a total of 68,622 miles, the most of any team in that time. In comparison, the PITTSBURGH STEELERS have only traveled 18,636 miles in that same two-year span.

     

  • The CLEVELAND BROWNS will log the fewest traveling miles this season, finishing with 6,416 miles. This is 2,770 fewer than the NEW YORK JETS traveled last year, when they finished with the lowest total in the NFL. Only one of Cleveland’s games, at Jacksonville, will be greater than 1,000 miles total.

     

  • The teams of the NFC West will fly the furthest distance of any division for the second year in a row. This year they will fly 114,616 miles, compared to last year’s 113,620 miles. The teams of the AFC North will travel the least this year, accumulating a total of 34,584 miles.

     

  • The NEW YORK JETS will see the biggest increase in their traveling miles from the previous season. They will travel 16,598 more miles this year.
