The graphic below was posted on Reddit Tuesday morning by the user danchan22 and it has since become viral. It shows a circular progression of NFL parity based on head-to-head wins and losses.

Here's how to read it: Viewing it clockwise, the team that comes first beat the team next to them who, in turn, beat the team next to them. It's not as confusing as it sounds. Look at the Steelers logo at the top. The Steelers beat the Falcons 15-9. The Falcons beat the Bucs 27-21. The Bucs beat the Browns 17-14. And so on and so forth.

27-13 is for the Cowboys because it is in blue. Our score against the Colts is in Red

The '72 season would be the equivalent of dividing by 0.

And Andre Johnson wasn't alive in '72. :francis:

This chart means:

SOMEONE HAS WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS.

But, it's still pretty cool.

................parity is every team winning one game?



Cool graphic though.
