Week 6 stats:


To explain the columns above, Median is a median point spread, and can be used to get a feel for how good a team is without overly weighting a blowout win or blowout loss. HS is Brian Burke’s Homemade Sagarin, as implemented in Maggie Xiong’s PDL::Stats. Pred is the predicted Pythagorean expectation. The exponent for this measure is fitted to the data set itself. SOS, SRS, and MOV are the simple ranking components, analyzed via this Perl implementation. MOV is margin of victory, or point spread divided by games played. SOS is strength of schedule. SRS is the simple ranking.

Week 6 OSRS and DSRS stats:


It’s interesting that while the #1 DSRS is Kansas City (expected), the #2 is Carolina (not so expected). The #1 OSRS is Denver, and the #2 for now appears to be Dallas. Dallas’s offense SRS can’t be assigned entirely to the offense. Monte Kiffin’s defense emphasizes turnovers and the Dallas special teams are scoring as well.
