The New England Patriots have proved formidable on the field and frugal off it. Tom Brady(notes) and company finished the 2010 NFL regular season with a league-best 14-2 record. They also rank as the leagueís most cost-effective team.

With a payroll of approximately $92.7 million, third-lowest in the NFL, New England paid just $6.6 million in payroll per win. Thatís 58 percent more efficient than the league median cost per win.

The second-best performance for the money this season was turned in by the red-hot Atlanta Falcons, who won nine of their last 10 games to take the top seeding in the NFC for the playoffs. With a payroll of $96.4 million, seventh-lowest in the league, the Falcons shelled out $7.4 million in payroll per win.

Conversely, the Carolina Panthers were by far the least cost-efficient team of 2010. Completing a dismal 2-14 season with an away loss to the Falcons on Sunday, it cost Carolina $56.1 million for each of their two wins. Thatís over 250 percent less efficient than the league median cost per win.

Second-worst in the league: the hapless Bills, who paid out $113.3 million in salary, a hair above the league average, but won only four games.

The average cost per win league-wide was $17.1 million, while the median cost per win was $15.6 million.

Impressive. The Patriots are sometimes ruthless in the way they cut players and stuff, but you can't argue with results.

The price of video equipment must have gone down.

Eh... It fluctuates every year. The teams that win a lot have a higher efficiency, the teams that lose a lot have a lower efficiency. Under this formula, the 0-16 Lions would have no efficiency, because you can't divide by zero. This method also doesn't take coaching and front office costs into consideration, which are important. I don't think Bill Belichek works for peanuts up in Boston.

Whatever it takes to win, as opposed to whatever it takes to sell seats.

Keep in mind that players take paycuts to play for New England, whereas teams like the Jaguars, Bills, Raiders, Browns, etc. have to pay a premium on players to attract them.

Winners have no shame, no matter how they win. - Niccolo Machiavelli

The Patriots win. They do it with scrubs and cast-offs, and they dont give a damn what anyone else things.

If you guys want to watch good football, watch the Patriots. They excel in every area of the game, and it is beautiful to watch.
