QBList Super Bowl Predictor

Hello again readers! The fantasy season is now wrapped up, so it’s time to move on to the playoffs. This gives me the opportunity to do something I rarely get to do: focus on real football outcomes and predict who will end the season on top. First, let’s take a look at our 12 remaining teams:

  1. Baltimore Ravens (14-2)
  2. San Francisco 49ers (13-3)
  3. Green Bay Packers (13-3)
  4. New Orleans Saints (13-3)
  5. Kansas City Chiefs (12-4)
  6. New England Patriots (12-4)
  7. Seattle Seahawks (11-5)
  8. Houston Texans (10-6)
  9. Buffalo Bills (10-6)
  10. Minnesota Vikings (10-6)
  11. Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)
  12. Tennessee Titans (8-8)

Strictly by record, it looks like Baltimore, San Francisco, Green Bay, and New Orleans should be our favorites. I don’t think it’s that easy though. Let’s dig a little deeper. I went back to the stats and examined every Super Bowl champ since 2000. What can past champions tell us about the likely victor in 2020?

 

Note: This preview attempts to use historical yardage stats as a predictive measure to narrow our search for a champion down to a few teams. From there, my personal bias took over. I understand that this is not a perfect predictive tool, but it’s my first time trying this–bear with me. Let me know in the comments what you think and feel free to share ideas on how I can improve for next year!
