OTC Power Rankings: Week 7

[adsenseyu1]

With week 7 complete we have our new rankings up and the Broncos reclaim the top spot.  Seems kind of weird since they lost this week while the Seahawks won right?  The reason that this happened is because a number of teams that the Broncos beat this season all had stronger defensive statistical showings that gave them a bigger boost in their scoring ranking than their loss in defensive rankings. Plus they added another strong team to the schedule with a win against the Colts who jumped into the top 3 with a win against the Broncos. The Colts also happen to be the most efficient team in the NFL in terms of dollars spent per win.

The Chiefs, despite a 7-0 record, fell a few slots in part because Green Bay and San Francisco had more impressive weeks and because their close win against the Texans brought their rankings down a hair. Outside of those top teams there was little movement overall in the top 15.

At the bottom of the NFL the Giants and Texans were able to jump out from the 30 and 31 slots while the Buccaneers and Vikings tumbled. The no-show last night killed the Vikings rankings as the Giants were one of the highest points allowed teams in the NFL and they did nothing against them. Throwing the Giants stats into their schedule with such a poor offensive showing really destroyed them. Right now they look to spend about $41 million per projected win. Outside of Jacksonville that’s the worst in the NFL, by a pretty good margin. They may want to consider moving Jared Allen if possible since he has the highest salary on the team.
