Sean Payton does not usually run up the score. I don't think he was tryingto last night. The 62-7 drubbing of the Colts will go down as one of the biggest ever; but it does not top the list.The NFL was not always the polished professional sport that it is now. You can see why.  In 1922 the Rock Island Independents defeated Evansville Crimson Giants 60-0. Indianapolis did at least score one touchdown last night.

Legend Jim Thorpe played for the Oorang Indians who saw the other side of this as the Akron Pros defeated the Oorang Indians 62-0 also in 1922. It was obviously a good year for offense. Check out the rest of the top five NFL blowouts here.
