Week 7 Power Rankings

Posted by deck104 on October 14, 2008

Mr. Formula outputs a power ranking every week, it’s how he ranks the teams and pits them against each other inside his mindgrapes. Below is the fruit of his labor after taking into account a bunch of variables and cross referencing them against each other.

The Number to the right of each team is their “value” at a neutral field. For Example, the number one ranked team, Tampa Bay, has a value of 30.16520. Seattle, the worst team, has a value of 0.00000 (beacuse every other team is assumed to beat them). Meaning Tampa Bay should conceivably beat Seattle by 30 points at a neutral site. Chicago, the second ranked team has a value of 29.72651, meaning the Bucs would beat the Bears by approximately 0.44 points.

This in no way is supposed to predict how many points a team will score in a game, simply their superiority over the clubs below them.

1.   Tampa Bay     – 30.16520     (+10)
2.   Chicago         – 29.72651     (+4)
3.   Tennessee     – 29.27333     (-2)
4.   Pittsburgh     – 27.45814     (+8)
5.   Indianapolis  – 27.28549     (+16)

6.   Arizona          – 25.91474     (+1)
7.   Dallas            – 25.53871     (-2)
8.   San Diego      – 23.99482     (Even)
9.   Philadelphia   – 23.87530     (+3)
10. Carolina         – 23.60676     (-8)
11. Miami            – 22.68046     (-2)
12. Jacksonville   – 22.41095     (+11)
13. Cleveland       – 22.29638     (+11)
14. New York Jets – 22.08348    (Even)
15. New Orleans   – 21.87213     (+1)
16. Atlanta           – 21.73660     (+2)
17. NY Giants       – 21.62940     (-13)
18. Washington    – 19.73749     (-15)
19. Baltimore        – 19.26437     (-8)
20. Minnesota       – 18.95116    (-5)
21. Denver            –  18.79948   (-4)
22. Green Bay        – 18.17388    (-3)
23. Houston         –  18.05060    (+3)
24. Cincinatti        – 15.69856    (-4)
25. Buffalo            – 14.16296    (EVEN)
26. New England   – 12.95404    (-4)
27. San Francisco  – 7.85347      (+1)
28. Detroit            – 5.26278      (+2)
29. Oakland          – 4.19985       (-2)
30. Kansas City    –  2.05730      (-1)
31. St. Louis         – 1.09716      (+1)
32. Seattle            – 0.00000       (-1)

So that’s what this week’s power rankings come out as. All of the bye teems drop a little bit because the byes are factored in outside of the power rankings, all of the NFC East big shots dropping was kind of predictable but Jacksonville shot up the gut and Chicago and Tampa being at the top of the ladder is pretty interesting. We have a new bottom team in the Seattle Seahawks, so the Ramses have something to be proud of.

Lots of weird action this week, expect the spread ranges up Wednesday or Thursday.
