NFL "Premiere" Standings

NFL “Premiere” Standings

As I watched the Bears beat the Rams last night, I thought about how many premiere matchups the NFL has had this year. The Chiefs at the Rams, Bears at the Patriots, Chargers at the Steelers, and so on…I wondered, if as a subset of your record, how have these teams collectively and exclusively performed against each other. As if a league within the league I wanted to see how well the best of the best have faired versus each other. Maybe it will give us a glimpse into the playoffs, maybe not, either way, below you can find not only the premiere team’s exclusive record vs. the best teams in the NFL, but the corresponding strength of schedule (also, strictly reflecting their opponent’s record vs. best of the best). For example:

Although the Colts are 3-2 vs the NFL’s best, 4/5 teams they’ve played have >/= .500 records vs. the NFL’s best:

IND, 3-2
L HOU 0.57 -0.43
L NE 0.75 -0.25
W TEN 0.38 0.38
W MIA 0.50 0.50
W HOU 0.57 0.57
0.77 0.15

So, here are the “Premeire” NFL Standings:
