The Patriots score in every quarter, the BC Eagles don't score in any quarters

The Patriots finished the first quarter of their opening game of the season tied 0-0 with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  New England has scored in every quarter its played since, rolling to an 8-0 record.

The 31 consecutive quarters with points on the board ties an all-time NFL record, one the Pats will most likely break in the opening 15 minutes of next week's contest in New York.

On the other hand, the local college football club is slightly less proficient on offense:

I sent that tweet after the third quarter of Boston College's 24-8 loss to NC State Saturday.  At the time, the Eagles trailed 21-0.  BC's fourth-quarter touchdown gave them points in just 9 of 28 quarters vs. ACC opponents this year.  The Eagles are 0-7 in conference play, with a total of 56 points in those games.  They've also been shut out in 7 of 14 halves.
