Seahawks.NET Power Rankings - Week 9

So, who's really got the goods at the halfway mark? Seahawks.NET's Dylan Johnson investigates the NFL's overachievers and underperformers so far.

The Seahawks.NET Power Rankings are based SOLELY on the Points Scored For rankings and the Points Scored Against rankings as published by on each Tuesday. The Ranking is determined by adding the Offensive Ranking and Defensive Ranking with ties broken by comparing the raw numbers (for an example, see * below). Look for teams with records that don’t seem to match their rankings to spot underachievers/overachievers. For example, if a team is ranked low in the standings but has better record than all of the teams around them, that team is overachieving, whereas a team that is ranked high in the standings but with a poor record is underachieving.
