A Statistical NFL Power Ranking: Vikings Are On Top
Forget what we think, this set of power rankings tells us what the number thinks:
The following NFL power ranking is not based on voting or opinions. The ranking comes from a formula created using the differential of six statistical categories that correlate to higher winning percentage. So what’s the formula? I take the differential of stats like Turnover percentage, scoring percentage, yards per play and four others. I input the stats, and the computer spits out the teams rating. The lower the number (some teams have negative ratings), the worse the team.
I personally charted this since the beginning of the season to make sure the formula produce a consistent ranking. While teams finish in position that initially look questionable, further research makes sense of most of the issues.
Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments down below. Hit me up on twitter @JasonBelschner. Enjoy the Power Rankings.
