The folks over at Bleeding Green Nation (and specifically, Brandon Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation) have been putting together their Eagles Almanac and in the process, discovered something interesting: the Minnesota Vikings have the second-tallest team in the NFL!
Well, for them it was relevant that they found out their own team was the tallest, but that’s neither here nor there. The full rankings are over there, as is a weight chart (the Vikings rank 17th in weight).
An interesting piece of data:
* The difference between the tallest team (Eagles) and shortest team (Washington) is less than a full inch: 0.82.
* The difference between the heaviest team (Colts) and the lightest team (Rams) is 8.44 pounds.
* None of the bottom five teams in height or weight had a winning record last season. In fact, some of them were among the worst teams.
