2008 NFL Power Rankings

Pre-Season Football Rankings

June 23rd, 2008

WhatIfSports.com presents its pre-season NFL Power Rankings. The site utilizes its award-winning football simulation engine to present the most comprehensive and unbiased ranking possible of all 32 teams in football each Monday during the regular season. To come up with the rankings, using only their statistical performance to date this season, each team is simulated against every other team 100 times.

For the pre-season run, all rosters are up-to-date through June 8th, 2008. This coincides with the data used for the 2008 NFL Season Preview (where the Patriots defeated the Cowboys in Super Bowl XLIII).
