2009 Week 7 NFL Ratings/Rankings and Summary

Week 7 of the NFL season is complete and it resulted in a few changes in the ratings.  The ratings are below but can always be found at http://sites.google.com/site/computerratings/nfl-football/nfl-ratings.

And then there were 3.  Denver was going to stay undefeated with the week off, but there were 3 others playing to stay that way and only 2 made it.  Indianapolis did so easily, New Orleans had to come back at the end, and Minnesota was hurt by turnovers.  The result is the top 3 stay the same but there are some changes behind them.

Minnesota drops all the way to #10 and Pittsburgh move to #8, and New England, Arizona, Cincinnati, and the Jets also benefited from some teams dropping.

The computer did great picking games this week going 10-3 against the spread, a great 5-1 on best picks, and there were no locks this week.  Details of the picks in last weeks newsletter.  Full prediction performance here.
