Buc Central’s POW-R’-ANKINGS: 2011 Week 1

by Staff Report on September 14, 2011

Buc Central’s POW-R’-ANKINGS; The power rankings are the product of a simple mathematical formula, using points for and points against. The rankings have predicted 10 of the last 21 Super Bowl winners. Further, 15 of the last 21 Super Bowl winners finished the regular season No. 1 or No. 2 in the POW-R’-ANKINGS system. Unlike with other, lesser rating systems, which are based on the authors opinion or some sort of biased towards a team they have a rooting interest in, no opinion is involved what so ever in formulating these rankings. None. Teams are ranked on a percentile scale, with 1.000 representing the NFL’s strongest team and 0.000 its weakest. If you don’t like where your perspective team is ranked, blame the evolution of mathematical science. (Key: WK 1 = This week’s rankings, based on combined stats from week 1 performances).

With the first week of the 2011 season in the books, the surprise team is the Buffalo Bills in Buc Central’s POW-R’-ANKINGS. Last season the Green Bay Packers led the power rankings from week 9 to week 16 and fell to number 2 in the final standings. Could the Bills be this years super surprise? The Bucs open the season at number 22 after falling victim to the Detroit Lions.
