Once again, the Patriots and Colts are 1-2 in this week's DVOA ratings, and they are closer than you might think. In fact, the difference between them comes down to one unit: special teams -- and, in particular, one very ironic position. And speaking of special teams, what is Seattle doing at number one?

This week: The top six stay the same, San Diego and Carolina jump forward, and the NFC East rules while the NFC West is lousy again. We also continue to track where the Pats and Colts stand in the race for "best DVOA ever."

The historic dominance of the Colts and Patriots continues, but two 53-yard field goals can't keep the Cowboys from falling off the pace -- and into fourth place behind Pittsburgh.

New England blows away the league with the greatest start of the DVOA Era. Dallas and Indianapolis are right behind, and... wait... is that Arizona in the top ten? Oh, will the wonders of DVOA ever cease?

Hey, remember when the projection system said that Tampa Bay would win the NFC South and New Orleans was a one-year wonder? Remember how we all assumed the numbers were incorrect? Whoops. Plus: Historic starts in New England, Pittsburgh, and Dallas.

New England and Pittsburgh reign supreme, while last year's two miracle teams sit at the bottom. This week's (very extended) commentary looks at past teams who defied their projections early, to find out what history says about hope in Houston and pessimism in Philadelphia. Note: DEN, OAK, PHI, WAS now fixed.

Here are the 2007 DVOA projections, including 10,000 simulations of the 2007 season to give each team's chances of making the playoffs or winning the division. Learn which teams have seen their projections change since the book, why some teams have projections that differ from conventional wisdom, and how much it will cost to see DVOA this year. (Hint: It is still free.)

The dark underbelly of the divisional system in sports is that weak-sister teams like the 2006 Seahawks automatically get into the playoffs because they win even weaker divisions. Was last year's NFC West the weakest division in recent history? Doug Farrar dives into a dozen years of DVOA to find out.

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.
