2017-8 NFL Computer Power Rankings – Week 15

   Our exclusive Artificial Intelligence generated NFL power  rankings are based on 5 proprietary  mathematical ranking systems developed  and optimized by our computer!  These  systems  are designed to:

   1. Determine the winner of the game

   2. Minimize difference between predicted margin and actual margin

   3. Minimize  squared difference between  predicted margin and actual margin

   4.  Minimize difference between predicted total and actual total

   5. Minimize  squared  difference between predicted total and actual total


Unlike traditional NFL systems, where the Power Rankings are used to produce predictions, here the predictions are used to generate the power rankings! Essentially, what we have is the ordering of the NFL teams after a 992 game season in which each team plays each other once at home   and once on the road (62 games in all) using  Artificial Intelligence discovered evolving discriminating factors to determine the outcome of each game.


Thus we have at any snapshot in time a clear picture of where teams stand according to the AI system.

Each ranking  point separating teams is worth approximately 0.5 actual points. Add in 3 points for home field advantage!  For  advanced precision, please consult the system’s game-specific predictions.
