Projecting the records of every team in the NFL is a grueling task and makes for an interesting set of power rankings. Unlike most arbitrary rankings out there, these are contrived using the philosophy that in order to be the best, you have to beat the best.
So these rankings were determined by projecting all 32 team's records. Then they are sorted by projected record and projected strength of schedule. Once that is all complete, the final result is a ranking that can be used as power rankings.
These rankings will be updated all year long, starting again from Week 4 and continuing throughout the season. The best teams will always have the best record against the best strength of schedule.
