Rankings based on Simple Ratings System (SRS) as per pro-football-reference.com, *the* source for NFL stats.  SRS takes into account strength of schedule and margin of victory.  Does not take into account win/loss records, injuries, or any other touchy feely stuff — purely stats-based rankings.  Can be thought of as a point spread, just add 2 points for home field advantage.
