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.

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.

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.

By this point, the weighted DVOA ratings we use over at FOX are starting to look a bit different from the year-long totals. Chicago is on top of both, with San Diego and Baltimore right behind, and New Orleans finally moves into the weighted top ten. Commentary now available at FOXSports.com.

This week, the top four stay the same in the total ratings while Dallas takes a slim lead in weighted DVOA. The Titans and Jets are rising, the Redskins are falling, and the Giants and Eagles just won't die. Well, their DVOA ratings won't die; the Giants might kill each other in real life. Commentary now available on FOXSports.com.

Few NFL rivalries are as bitter as Denver vs. Kansas City. As they get ready to meet in the NFL's first-ever "third" Thanksgiving game, we figured it was the perfect time to post our long-awaited look back at the year Denver and Kansas City were the two best teams in the NFL -- which is also the earliest year for which DVOA currently exists.
