NFP power rankings

Happy holidays, everybody! This marks the final installment of the NFP power rankings for the 2014 season. However, we’ll be back next week to break down the wildcard playoff matchups via the “Las Vegas market report.”

The numbers in brackets indicate each team’s Power Ranking, which is based on a scale of 60-100. These numbers can be used as a baseline to determine the point spread between any two teams on the list. Keep in mind that these numbers do not account for home field advantage, situational analysis (extra rest, back-to-back road games, divisional rivalries, etc), injuries, weather or public perception. They are merely to be used as a baseline for your initial analysis.
