I haven’t thought about this heavily, but I’m thinking this happens pretty easily, outside of when New England goes 16-0. What do you think?

    I was going to forward that same link as soon as this week’s graph was up. Looks like I missed the boat.

  2. Also when the Lions go 0-16.

    I suspect that the divisional home-and-away matchups make this a lot more likely. Note that there are a number of paired divisional teams, and the NFC West is all together in a group.

    I saw this the other day. I don’t think this means “parity” by any means. Heck, you could easily make a graph like this in baseball, and they are the farthest thing from parity.

    Baseball also has 10 times as many games.
