There are 5 games left, do you think the play-off picture will remain the same?
I don't. I don't think the current W-Ls tell us who the best teams are. I think the Saints will make the play-offs. I don't think the Giants will win their division & I think Tampa Bay will make the play-offs.
My whole point in bringing up this thread, was to illustrate if the power rankings were done correctly, the Saints would be higher than the Giants. Tampa Bay would be higher than Seattle. There would actually be several teams "ranked" better than their record. Several teams "ranked" worse than their record. I think the final standings will show that.
The Saints are not making the playoffs. They are about to drop to 5-6. The Giants are better than the Redskins, so yes, the Giants will win their division. And for Tampa to make the playoffs would say that Seattle doesn't. I see the Wild Cards being the Seahawks/Redskins.
