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.
I think the Bengals will make it over the Steelers. The Bears, Packers and Giants I see as locks in the NFC. So that leaves one spot left. New Orleans has a tough remaining schedule (@ATL, @NYG, @DAL, TB), so I don't see them making it in. That leaves Seattle & Tampa Bay. TB is hot right now so I will say TB will make it in.
