I didn’t do my power rankings last week so note that the “LW” column isn’t actually the standings for “Last Week” it’s actually the rankings from my Week 3 Power Rankings. I am now using Michael Wright’s power rankings to factor into the average ranking part of the formulat. I would like to add a few more sources as well but I’m not sure which ones I would use. The formula I made for this will become more and more accurate as the season goes on, because as of right now the win percentages are being greatly influential over the final outcome due to the fact that each game makes up a greater portion of teams win percentage. The more games that are played, the more it will water down that impact and the rankings as a whole will become more accurate.
I promise to start doing these every week if I ever manage to be in town for more than ten days at a time (hint: that’s probably not going to happen any time soon) but we are still putting up Michael Wright’s power rankings each week.
I will again be adding a few points that I feel are noteworthy below the rankings so be sure to check those out. Here are the rankings:
Here are some notes:
- There are a few teams that are extremely close with their final scores. Green Bay and San Francisco, Washington and Houston, Buffalo and Cleveland, Tennessee and Kansas City, and Tampa Bay and Oakland are all pairs that clearly could have gone either way with who was in front of the other.
- The Raiders are the only team with a win that is down among the winless, and not only that they have three winless teams in front of them.
- The Rams are actually losing by an average of more than three touchdowns. An average. I mean, what? How does that even happen?
- Seattle and Miami are the only teams with losing records that have positive point differentials.
- No team with winning records have a negative point differential thought San Diego and Arizona are .500 teams with negative point differentials.
- Teams nine through 13 (Chicago, Baltimore, New England, NY Jets and Pittsburgh) are really close in terms of average rankings.
