The purpose is for a contest/game I'm doing where people guess the end of season power rankings. I'm trying to come up with something similar to the power rankings that espn.com and SI.com posts each week.The reason the Giants are so low is because these rankings are only through the end of the regular season. The Giants finished at only 10-6, and weren't too dominant in any of the categories I'm using.
Whats the purpose of your rankings? Are you trying to predict each weeks games, the standings at the end of the year, or someting else? Just trying to understand the purpose of the rankings. For example, NYG end up #12 in your rankings, but they won it all last year.

win % + % of points scored out of points scored+ points allowed
team goes 8-2 scores 300 allows 200
win % = .80
points scored % = .60
total ranking = 1.40
i always include playoff points/record also ....unless your contest is "regular season ranking"....
