NFL Power Rankings

As of 1/23/17

The difference in two teams power rankings number is what the spread would be if those teams met on a neutral site. These numbers are based on what has happened on the field this season and does not take into account the public perceptions of a team.  You may see some odd rankings but that is because you have been accustomed to holding wins and losses as the supreme measure of success.  As far as championships go that is true but there are other factors that contribute to a win that are sometimes out of the control of both teams.  Bad calls, bounce of a ball etc.  These rankings eliminate luck and show the rankings of each team as they should be if there were no luck involved.
