2009 Week 15 NFL Ratings/Rankings and Summary

Week 15 of the NFL season is complete and with some surprising games there is some movements in the rankings.  The ratings are below but can always be found at http://sites.google.com/site/computerratings/nfl-football/nfl-ratings.

And there is only 1.  But remarkably they are not ranked #1!  The Saints did drop over 1.2 ratings points but had a bit lead coming in and the Colts also dropped 0.75 leaving them still about a rating point behind.

Behind them, New England remains #3 but beyond that we finally have some changes.  Minnesota drops all the way to #8 leaving room for the Eagles, Chargers, and Dallas to move up.  In the second 10, Atlanta and the Giants both move up 6 spots while the 49ers, Broncos, and Houston all drop quite a bit.

The computer had a third straight great week against the spread going 10-6 after 12-4 and 11-5 the last 2 weeks.  Details of the picks in last weeks newsletter.  Full prediction performance here.
