    Week 17 Power Ratings

    Point differential power ratings after week 16

    This week I yanked the Indianapolis / Jets game out of the ratings compilation.  Much of Indy’s game constituted a post-blowout party and is in no way indicative of this team.  As of this week, both meaningless New Orleans losses have been tossed too. 

    I made a judgment call that everyone else in the NFL actually tried to win their game this week.  It can be argued the other way that the bottom half of the win-loss standings has somewhat given up on playing a complete game.  Also, maybe a few teams were realizing halfway through a game that they’re essentially goners for the season, and they just started whimpering on the sidelines, so they got blown out.  However, these games are at least meaningful for the various coaches' jobs.

    I may or may not produce a power rating after week 17, as too many games are possibly garbage time for one team or another.  Let me think about it.

    NO was trying to win.  They have been trying to lock up homefield advantage.  Tonights MIN loss locked it up for them.
