NFL Power Ranking: Not an opinion, it’s a calculation
The following NFL power ranking is not based on voting or opinions. The ranking comes from a formula created using the differential of seven 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.
It’s been a couple of weeks, but the system is back with a couple of improvements. I added a stat created by former Ravens’ head coach Brian Billick, toxic differential. The other stats were re-weighted to compensate for the new stat. All in all, it looks like a good upgrade; it helped me pick 10 out of 14 games last week including Tennessee over Green Bay. As usual, we start with the dregs of the league.
