Was last year's NFC West the weakest division in recent history? Doug Farrar dives into a dozen years of DVOA to find out.

1996 DVOA Ratings and Commentary

Return with us now to days of old, when Brett Favre couldn't win the big game, Steve McNair was a HO, and the Baltimore Ravens had a great offense and a terrible defense. (Yes, really.) The DVOA era expands past one decade with this look at the 1996 season.

Postseason DVOA I

This is our second year continuing with DVOA into the playoffs. This year, based on reader requests, we've ranked all 32 teams, whether they are in the playoffs or not. The results show just how dominant the AFC is, and just how closely grouped the last four NFC teams are. Well, except Seattle. UPDATE: FOXSports.com commentary finally available.

Final 2006 DVOA Ratings

Baltimore leads the final DVOA ratings for the 2006 season and goes into the playoffs with the Super Bowl favorite trifecta: First in DVOA, first in weighted DVOA, and first in Pythagorean wins. New England moves ahead of San Diego for the number two spot in weighted DVOA, and Philadelphia moves ahead of Chicago as the best NFC team of 2006. Indianapolis puts up the second highest offensive DVOA ever, Chicago the third highest special teams DVOA. Numbers here, commentary on FOXSports.com.

Week 17 DVOA Ratings

The natural order of things has been re-established: the AFC is the superior conference, as Chicago falls behind New England and Jacksonville in the weighted formula. The Cowboys and Giants keep falling, the Saints and Eagles keep rising, and the 8-7 AFC teams are all better than the 9-6 AFC teams -- as long as you ignore Tennessee's first four games. Ratings here, commentary on FOXSports.com.
