NFL Team Success Ratings

| by

Here is an alternative set of rankings based on Success Rate. (You can learn more about SR at this post, and up-to-date advanced team stats, including SR, are always available here.) Beginning this week, each team's SR is adjusted for opponent strength.

The table below also lists each team's opponent SR, except when playing the team of interest itself, for offense, defense, and in total. I realize this may be a little confusing, so I shaded the columns. The shaded columns represent the team's own adjusted SR, while the white columns represent the team's opponent SR. Each team's total adjusted SR is in the far right column.

Each column is sortable. You can sort by division to see how each team shakes out within its own neighborhood. Note that the three top teams come from the NFC East, and that's not good news for my loyal Washington Post readers.

I can understand why Dallas and San Diego are ranked where they are, but Pittsburgh and San Francisco are big mysteries to me.
