2009 NFL Power Rankings (Week 1)

Well here are my power rankings, using the same formula that I developed last year. There are some things that are a little off because all the teams have played only one game but on the whole it’s okay. Once the teams get some realistic win percentages and the strength of schedule numbers have played out a little bit more this will really thrive. The glaring problem right now is that not a single team that lost is ahead of a single team that won. This clearly isn’t accurate but as the season progresses it will work itself out. At the very least you can look at the “Avg Rank” column to see the average ranking from a large number of reputable sources. Either way, here it is:

Rank LW Team W L T SOS PD/G Avg Rnk Score
