Week 8 Power Rankings

Posted by deck104 on October 21, 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, Pittsburgh, has a value of 29.27980. Kansas City, the worst team, has a value of 0.00000 (beacuse every other team is assumed to beat them). Meaning Pittsburgh should conceivably beat Kansas City by 29 points at a neutral site. Tennessee, the second ranked team has a value of 26.97769, meaning the Bucs “would” beat the Bears by approximately 2.3 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.  Pittsburgh    – 29.27980 – (+3)
2.  Tennessee     – 26.97769 – (+1)
3.  Chicago       – 26.86526 – (-1)
4.  Philadelpiha  – 24.11808 – (+5)
5.  Tampa Bay     – 23.48914 – (-4)

6.  Carolina      – 23.00013 – (+4)
7.  Arizona       – 22.36610 – (-1)
8.  N.Y. Giants   – 21.32615 – (+9)
9.  Green Bay     – 21.14260 – (+13)
10. Atlanta       – 20.68249 – (+6)
11. Indianapolis  – 20.26345 – (-6)
12. Cleveland     – 20.03496 – (+1)
13. Washington    – 19.53382 – (+5)
14. Baltimore     – 19.31716 – (+5)
15. Jacksonville  – 18.68352 – (-3)
16. San Diego     – 18.65141 –  (-8)
17. Minnesota     – 18.39081 – (+3)
18. Dallas        – 17.39990 – (-11)
19. Buffalo       – 17.02065 – (+6)
20. New Orleans   – 16.07923 – (-5)
21. New England   – 15.80961 – (+5)
22. Miami         – 14.31591 –  (-11)
23. N.Y. Jets     – 13.94389 – (-9)
24. Houston   – 11.82460 – (-1)
25. St. Louis     – 10.29309 – (+6)
26. San Francisco – 9.01949 – (+1)
27. Cincinatti    – 8.56286 – (-3)
28. Denver        – 8.41109 – (-4)
29. Seattle       – 6.01241 – (+3)
30. Detroit       – 5.95489 – (-2)
31. Oakland       – 3.14117 – (-2)
32. Kansas City   – 0.00000 – (-2)

 

Some pretty interesting developments here. Certainly a ton of movement as every team is in a different slot than last week. Dallas took a huge blow, as did Miami. Kansas City is FINALLY the lowest ranked team. Oakland dropped to second worst despite winning and the system pretty much hates the AFC East as the Bills and Pats are getting no respect. Other than the Falcons climbing six slots the only other big movement was the Giants moving back into the top ten.

We’ll have the spread ranges up in the next two days, seems like a lot less action than last week so far.
