    I'm sure most, if not all, of us know about the RPI rankings in college basketball. I was curious to see how a statistical ranking would work for us so I'm going to do an RPI ranking for The League that updates after each week of the season. I'm going to use the same formula from college basketball which is:

    A. Team's Winning Percentage x .25
    B. Team's Opponent's Winning Percentage(excluding games against the team) x .5
    C. Team's Opponent's Opponent's Winning Percentage(excluding games against the team) x .25

    A+B+C=RPI Rating

    However, for A, home and away games will be weighted also like college basketball like this:

    Home Win = .6 of a win
    Away Win = 1.4 of a win
    Home Loss = 1.4 of a loss
    Away Loss = .6 of a loss

    Anyone who follows RPI rankings probably knows that they're worthless early in the season but it should be interesting to see how it plays out and evolves over the season. So here's the rankings after the first week of the season...and it tells us absolutely nothing, lol:

    1. Colts - .35
    2. Cowboys - .35
    3. Giants - .35
    4. Lions - .35
    5. Patriots - .35
    6. Saints - .35
    7. Seahawks - .35
    8. Steelers - .35
    9. Titans - .35
    10. Bears - .15
    11. Broncos - .15
    12. Browns - .15
    13. Cardinals - .15
    14. Chargers - .15
    15. Chiefs - .15
    16. Rams - .15
    17. Bengals - 0
    18. Bills - 0
    19. Eagles - 0
    20. Falcons - 0
    21. Panthers - 0
    22. Raiders - 0
    23. Vikings - 0
    24. 49ers - 0
    25. Buccaneers - 0
    26. Dolphins - 0
    27. Jaguars - 0
    28. Jets - 0
    29. Packers - 0
    30. Ravens - 0
