Pre-Season Power Rankings (by Football Mogul 2014)

Teams are listed by division; rankings are for the entire NFL (out of 32 teams).

Note that Power Rankings may differ from predicted record, because projected standings were determined by simulating the actual 2013 NFL schedule.

For example, the Patriots are projected to win more games than the Broncos, despite having a lower Power Rank, because the Patriots play in a much weaker division.

Items of note:

The five weakest teams are all in the AFC (Raiders, Jaguars, Jets, Bills, Titans).

The top three teams play in the NFC West and AFC West (49ers, Seahawks, Broncos).

The Broncos and Patriots look like locks to win their divisions.

Interesting to look back at this now that the season is over. I'd stack your pre-season predictions up against any of the experts. Comparing it to the Yahoo Power ratings at the end of the regular season, the top of your list stacks up very well, with 8 of the top 9 being within 2 spots, the exception being Indy with a difference of 5, and power ratings being subjective, you can look up the CBS Sports power rating and see your Indy ranking just 1 away from where they put them. The biggest misses are Houston, 20 spots off, San Diego, 15 spots off, and the New York Jets at 11 spots off. I have to think that you more accurately placed Kansas City and New Orleans than most predictors.
