    More fun with statistics! Pulled out of Reddit.

    If you haven't heard of the Bacon Number, it's the number of actors that you need to connect a random actor to Kevin Bacon, using movies they were both in. Almost any actor in a Hollywood movie is connected within 6 degrees.

    Well, the NFL's bacon number is basically another variant of the NFL Parity Wheel, it shows how many games it takes to make you lose to another team.

    Examples:
    - Houston beat Chicago, so our winning Bacon Number for them is 1. (lower is better.)
    - Houston lost to GB, who lost to the Giants, so our losing Bacon Number for the Giants is 2. (higher is better.)

    This season, every team has a maximum of 4 degrees of separation, even with the ****ty teams like the Jags and Chiefs.

    On average, for the Texans it takes 1.77 games to beat a team, and 2.68 games to lose to a team... so if you wanted to treat this as a statistical power ranking, we're 2nd in losses and 3rd in wins.

    This either contains secret al qaeda code for their next terrorist attack or one of those 3d pictures that you have to look at with your eyes unfocused. I hate those.
