We thought the College strength of wins/pain of losses was so interesting we decided to do one for the NFL and see the results. How it’s devised is if you beat an opponent you get credit for all their wins over their opponents. If you lose you get all their losses.
Strength of Wins
In this first chart below you can see Strength of Wins. Pittsburgh is in the #1 spot this week. The Steelers have wins over NY Giants (3-7), Denver (4-6), Houston (3-7), Philadelphia (3-6-1), Cleveland (7-3), Tennessee (7-3), Baltimore (6-4) Dallas (3-7), Cincinnati (2-7-1) Jacksonville (1-9) and those teams have 39 wins. Kansas City is #2 with 37 wins.
