The NFL Misery Index

By | September 13, 2018

Ever wonder which fans have the most to boast about and most to lament about? I created this index to figure out how good it has been to be a fan of your team over the last 20/10/5 years.

The calculation is simple;

Regular Season Points
(5 * # of teams in the division) – (5 * Place finished)

Post Season
Wild Card loser – 5pts
Div Loser – 10 pts
Conf loser – 20 pts
SB Loser – 40 pts
SB Winner – 80 pts

A world series win should carry a fan base for many years thus the high point total for winning it all.

Check to see where your favorite team resides over each period
