Beatpaths NFL Games: Week 9

Update: Washington beat Philadelphia. And whoa, this one game made quite a difference. It also further adjusts the power rankings. Movements of more than three slots:

Up: CAR, WAS, NE, CHI, CLE, MIN
Down: DAL, PHI, ARI, NYJ, MIA

New beatpath graph and full power rankings will come out after the NE/IND game. Check out this graph!

Earlier Update: After the afternoon games, here’s what seems to be going on with the power rankings, though they will be affected significantly by the last two games tonight and Monday. These final two games are huge – WAS/PHI will result in either team being two or more beatpaths below the other, with either KC or SEA advantaging from the shift. Movers of more than three slots:

Up: CAR, CHI, CLE, MIN,
Down: ARI, NYJ, MIA

Here’s the graph after the four afternoon games. The graph’s drawn in a different order for clarity, but there’s only two differences – the Giants have a beatpath to the 49ers, and Chicago has a beatpath to New Orleans.

(Even Earlier):

Here’s the graph after the completion of the early games. We had a couple of crazy finishes this week! The big news is that Carolina finally shakes off some beatloops and climbs dramatically. This entry will be updated as more games finish.

One Response to Beatpaths NFL Games: Week 9

  1. DavidH says:

    I like having the divisions colored, and noting which teams have beatpaths to all the other teams in their division:

    New England
    Pittsburgh (despite Cincy being in 1st place)
    Indianapolis
    Denver
    nobody in the NFC East
    Chicago
    Carolina (despite being tied w/ Atlanta)
    nobody in the NFC West

    Also I just noticed that every team in the AFC East has allowed more points than they’ve scored. (Unless the Pats win by 21 points tonight.)
