After seven weeks of regular season action, the BES is holding steady with a 64% accuracy rate in predicting game outcomes based purely on its rankings. The BES now owns a record of 47-26 (.644) after going 10-4 in Week 7.
This week’s rankings present a new look to the BES Top-10 with the Giants (4-3) at No. 9 and the Colts (3-4) at No. 10.
Though the Colts have a sub .500 record, the BES apparently likes that they are 3-2 in their last five games with those three wins being against each of their AFC South rivals. The BES was also quite impressed with the Colts’ valiant effort in Week 6 against the Patriots (No. 1) despite losing 34-27. Nonetheless, their stay in the Top-10 could be short-lived if they fall to the Panthers (No. 5) on the road in Week 8.
Speaking of the Panthers, they’ve finally cracked the BES Top-5, joining the ranks of the league’s remaining unbeaten teams. At 6-0, the Panthers are holding on to first place in the NFC South, arguably the league’s strongest division.
The Patriots (6-0) extend their stay atop the BES rankings to four weeks after a pivotal AFC East win over the Jets (4-2). We previously speculated the Patriots might have problems with the Jets defense, currently ranked No. 2 in BES Defense. The battle was intense as the lead changed hands four times. Still, in the end, the Patriots No. 1 BES Offense proved too much for the Jets in a 30-23 victory.
Interesting to see if Carolina can beat Green Bay this year with Jared Allen pass rush on Rodgers.
WHOs NEXT on our HITlist (r.i.p. to our last victims!) #LetsGoCHIEFS
Lions are up next – Dez
Yea and we play the Bengals on Sunday. Gonna be interesting
What’s Big Ben’s status?
It just came across the timeline that Big Ben is expected to play but Big Ben said his self he’s not sure. I think he’s playing
Tomlin said he’s playing, Ben … he’s not so sure
It’s a divisional game with obvious playoff implications. Big Ben has to play. You can not start Landry Jones.
I’m going to remain positive going into this weekend against the bengals. It’s a division game and we play close division games and IF Big Ben plays I expect to see a heavy dose of #26 and play action which had been missing in our offense
What is BES and how is it calculated?
