2009 NFL Week 16 Beatpath Graph

Fun week of games! Right now the AFC South looks very strong – if Beatpaths were to pick the playoff seedings as of today, we’d have three AFC South teams in the playoffs, with Jacksonville and Houston both ranked above the top AFC North team, Cincinnati. We’d also have three NFC East teams. The AFC […]

Ranking Analysis – Week 15

Tom here with the analysis of stability in this week’s rankings, and the confidence of picks for this week’s matchups. Two big movers this week: Arizona dropping from 13th to 23rd, and Oakland rising from 24th to 13th. Do-si-do! Overall a big drop in the number of ranking changes. Very few big shifts at all […]

2009 NFL Week 16 Picks

Time for the Week 16 picks! Beatpaths and ITB were both 10-6 this week, a slightly less accurate week for all methods overall. Isaacson-Tarbell was 8-8.

Ranking Analysis – Week 14

Hey everyone, Tom hereβ€”a bit behind this week, but about 240 undergraduates needed their final exams graded. The two big movers this week were Houston (for the third week in a row) and Miami. The number of rank changes this week (112) is the same as Weeks 4 & 7, but the variance is much […]

2009 NFL Week 14 Beatpaths Power Rankings

Hey folks! Kenneth here with your weekly rankings. Lots of commentary, some of which might be useful! Boy, it’s starting to feel like deja vu to me. Or maybe a yo-yo. The graph seems to keep straightening up, then flattening out, then straightening up, and so on. I wish it would just pick a form […]

2009 NFL Week 14 Beatpath Graph

A couple of crazy upsets this week, and we’re going vertical again. At 12-4, Isaacson-Tarbell led all variants – this seems to be a pattern late in the season, even though it still has a ways to go to make up for its early-season stumbles. Beatpaths was 10-6, and ITB was 11-5. I was 1-3 […]
