Quality Stats Power Rankings

Through Week 16 of the 2013 Regular Season

About our Quality Stats Power Rankings (below). 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 very adept at picking out NFL champs: 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. 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. The Texans were No. 1 across the board in 2011 before catastrophic injuries at quarterback derailed the team's likely Super Bowl run.

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. Still, our Quality Stats Power Rankings are a great way to size up the relative merits top to bottom of each and every team.
