2018-9 NFL Computer Power Rankings – Week 1

  Do you ever wonder about the “true strength”of your favorite NFL team? Power rankings by sportswriters often are hype-based and do not reflect statistical reality. It takes  an  unbiased  intelligent computer to do the job!


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


Scoring  machine learning performance along these 5 dimensions allows our AI system to  adapt to new information quickly and synergistically.  Observed over time we are able to get an accurate assessment of current and evolving team strengths and weaknesses.


Each AI  point separating teams below is worth 1.0 actual point. For a rough prediction, average offenses versus opponent defenses and adjust for home and visitors.   For  advanced accuracy and convenience, please consult the deep learning system’s game-specific predictions, which use additional learned factors and weights.
