Vegas NFL Power Rankings (Luv Skins)

So you know how I always publish these Las Vegas Oddsmakers College Football rankings? Which are produced by Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the group that advises Nevada sports book and is basically a corporate sponsor of the Bog by this point?

Well, LVSC also produces NFL power rankings, which I suppose I might as well start including on a weekly basis. As always, I would say these are more accurate than the power rankings produced by Peter King, Mark Maske, Les Carpenter, Pete Prisco, Peter Schrager, and all the rest, because LVSC's financial future rests on these being ideally accurate measures of the strength of NFL teams. And, to me, the shocker is where the Skins are ranked. Rankings after the jump.

(I can also start publishing all the numerical indexes that go into these if you really want.)

Bear in mind that record and head-to-head and past results are all insignificant; or rather, not decisive. What this comes down to is, if the teams played each other on neutral fields right at this very second, which team would be favored. And really, that's all that's important in this world.

Three of the top 13 are NFC Easterners.

1. NEW ENGLAND
2. INDIANAPOLIS
3. SAN DIEGO
4. DALLAS
5. CHICAGO
6. PITTSBURGH
7. BALTIMORE
8, SEATTLE
9. CINCINNATI
10. DENVER
11. NEW ORLEANS
12. WASHINGTON
13. PHILADELPHIA
14. JACKSONVILLE
15. CAROLINA
16. GREEN BAY
17. TENNESSEE
18. SAN FRANCISCO
19. NEW YORK JETS
20. HOUSTON
21. DETROIT
22. SAINT LOUIS
23. ARIZONA
24. TAMPA BAY
25. MIAMI
26. OAKLAND
27. MINNESOTA
28. NEW YORK GIANTS
29. KANSAS CITY
30. CLEVELAND
31. ATLANTA
32. BUFFALO

On a neutral field?

Washington defeated Philly on Philly's field, and they're only ranked one spot higher than them. Hmmmm...

I would take Washington over Denver and N.O. if they were playing on a neutral field that's for sure. Denver has a huge home advantage and they needed OT to beat MIAMI (?!?!?)

Denver hasn't played Miami this year. I think these power rankings refer to the present day.

damnit- oakland. Even worse. And it was Shan's lucky timeout and Sebastian's drunken football rotation that lost it.

Yeah. Denver needed OT to beat Oakland, and only did that by Sea Bass clanging a field goal off of the upright before Elam got the chance to win it.

There's no way on this green earth that Dallas is the fourth-best team in football. Just no way.

Wake Forest Demon Deacon football and the New Orleans Saints are going to come back down to earth this year. Neither team was the real thing last year.

//yeah, I brought college football into this
