For a 6-6 team scraping by week to week, Football Outsider’s sure is giving them a heck of a lot of love in their well-respected DVOA rankings. The Denver Broncos currently fifth in overall DVOA and the only team at .500 in the top ten.
Week 13 Weighted DVOA Rankings
- Kansas City Chiefs 38.6%
- Los Angeles Chargers 31.2%
- Los Angeles Rams 27.8%
- New Orleans Saints 27.3%
- Denver Broncos 23.9%
Amazingly, the Broncos have played seven of their twelve games against teams currently in the Top 10 DVOA from Football Outsider’s. No wonder the Broncos have had a rough go at it.
Even so, their backs are against the wall now and they must win every game to have a legitimate shot at surprising everyone with a playoff run.
