Week 14 Power Rankings

Posted by deck104 on December 4, 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 ‚Äúvalue‚ÄĚ at a neutral field. For Example, the number one ranked team, The Giants, has a value of 27.52162. St. Louis, the worst team, has a value of 0.00000 (beacuse every other team is assumed to beat them). Meaning¬†The Giants¬†should conceivably beat St. Louis by¬†27.5 points at a neutral site. Tennessee, the second ranked team has a value of 26.61108, meaning the¬†Giants ‚Äúwould‚Ä̬†beat the¬†Titans by approximately¬†1 point at a neutral site (like London).

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.  NY Giants     Р27.56162
2.  Tennessee   Р26.61108
3.  Baltimore     Р26.19647
4.  Pittsburgh   Р25.66657
5.  Tampa Bay     Р22.74425
6.  Philadelphia  Р23.30936
7.  Green Bay     Р21.76834
8.  Carolina      Р21.14588
9.  Atlanta       Р21.07997
10. Minnesota     Р20.93014
11. Indianapolis  Р20.42818
12. New Orleans   Р19.88712
13. NY Jets       Р19.22131
14. Dallas        Р18.72774
15. Chicago       Р18.40959
16. San Diego     Р17.94695
17. Arizona       Р17.43722
18. New England   Р16.00247
19. Cleveland     Р15.66974
20. Washington    Р15.57922
21. Houston   Р15.22528
22. Jacksonville  Р14.67220
23. Buffalo       Р13.77820
24. Miami         Р13.64310
25. Denver        Р13.13531
26. San Francisco – 10.13593
27. Cincinatti¬†¬†¬† –¬† 8.72370
28. Oakland¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† –¬† 8.35143
29. Seattle¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† –¬† 8.23424
30. Kansas City¬†¬† –¬† 7.02378
31. Detroit¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† –¬† 3.06179
32. St. Louis¬†¬†¬†¬† –¬† 0.00000

Not a lot of movement in the top five of the power rankings.¬† Pretty surprised to see New Orleans as high as they were and Carolina lower than Tampa, but I’m sure those will shake themselves out this weekend as the NFC South all play each other on Sunday.¬† I was also surprised to see Arizona below a bunch of NFC teams that I don’t think they should be below (NO, Chi; but also SD).


Our bets for the week will be posted concurrently. Been swamped at work today. Actually thought I had an easy day today; I don’t, but screw it.
