Quality Stats Power Rankings

Final Statistics for the 2011 Season

About our Quality Stats Power Rankings.This indicator ranks each team from No. 1 to 32 based upon average ranking across the board in each of our Quality Stats. It’s proven pretty adept at picking out NFL champs: Green Bay was No. 1 across the board in 2010 and won the Super Bowl; Pittsburgh was No. 2 across the board and won the AFC title. New Orleans was No. 1 across the board in 2009 and won the Super Bowl; Indianapolis was No. 3 across the board in 2009, the highest-ranked AFC team, and won the AFC title. No other major stat site’s overall rankings over the last two years were as good as identifying champions. One caveat: because it is an average ranking, it treats each of our indicators as statistical equals. But as you can see by studying Correlation to Victory and Predictive Rate of Victory, some stats are better than others at identifying winners week in and week out.
