Week 13 power rankings

Wow, what a week of football. This week the system will go:

Team (this week pct)(last week pct)(lw rank)

I will also include every teams quality wins and quality losses along with bad losses

Quality wins = wins vs teams over .500

Quality losses = losses vs teams over .500 by 14 points or less

Bad losses = losses vs teams under .400

Some explanations: The Falcons are rated ahead of the Steelers because in order for a 9-3 team to be ranked ahead of a 10-2 team they need the following (This also applies to 9-3 Jets ahead of 8-4 Ravens)

head to head win by 14 or more

SOS at least 15 ranks ahead of better team

Margin of Victory at leas 25% higher than better team
