2011 Week 2 stats

Note that the New York Jets are the highest ranked squad right now, and since the strength of schedule metric is heavily weighted by a single bad team, both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are suffering substantially for having played Saint Louis and Seattle, respectively. Median is the median point spread, Pred is the fitted pythagorean expectation, SRS, MOV, and SOS are the simple ranking components.
