Jason La Canfora of NFL.com and NFL Network looks at the "Moneyball" of the NFL, shining the spotlight on the economics of wins and losses.
Using figures of actual dollars spent by each team from 2004-2008 -- as tabulated by the NFL Management Council -- La Canfora breaks down the cost per win for each franchise.
The Patriots rank first, with $8.14 million per win. Their total committed cash was $512.31 million, the 11th highest total in the NFL.
On the flip side, the Raiders are last, with $25.66 million per win.
