Pythagenport Relative Power Index Week 1

After one week of play the rankings are really just a look at who beat their Week 1 opponent the worst.  That honor goes to the Seattle Seahawks who blanked the St. Louis Rams while putting up 28 points.  Philadelphia's 38-10 destruction of the Panthers rates a close second, but nothing beats the shutout in this system.  San Diego is ahead of only two other winning teams this week, but those teams are the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts which at least makes me feel a little better.

The New York Jets and Denver Broncos make what will most likely be short-lived appearances in the top 10 and a strong statement about why you shouldn't judge teams by such small sample sizes.  These numbers simply aren't meaningful at this point because they're all essentially without any context.  Beating the Bengals by five doesn't compare favorably to beating the Titans by three, but the system doesn't know that yet.  By around Week 5 it'll have a clue, but even then remember that these are just for fun and aren't meant to be the final word on where each team falls in the hierarchy of the National Football League.

I know not everyone who is reading this is familiar with the stats used, so if you have questions please ask in the comments and I'll do my best to answer them.

Pythagenport is (pf ^ x)/(pf ^ x + pa ^ x), where x is ((pf+pa)/g)^.285. RPI is 25% Pythagenport Winning Percentage, 50% Opponents' Pythagenport Winning Percentage and 25% Opponents' Opponents' Pythagenport Winning Percentage. RPI this week is just Pythagenport Winning Percentage as opponent adjustments are at 0 for the first four weeks. The rest of the stats should already be familiar.
