ESPN’S Projected Wins Power Rankings

New, comments

It’s power rankings, but with science.

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

I always enjoy a good power rankings, especially when they come after a big calendar event. Right after the draft is prime power ranking time. This one from ESPN is right after the draft and involves science. Perfect. ESPN ranked each team based on their projected win total. This is what they had to say:

8. Houston Texans

Projected wins: 8.5

Chance to make playoffs: 44.2 percent

Where the team improved this offseason: A plan to protect Deshaun Watson. The Texans used two of their three picks in the first two rounds on offensive tackles: Alabama State’s Tytus Howard (No. 23) and Northern Illinois’ Max Scharping (No. 55). It remains to be seen whether they will be impact players in 2019, but Houston took a step in the right direction by drafting two players it hopes will protect its franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future. -- Sarah Barshop

If you were wondering about how the rest of the AFC South is ranked, the Colts are 5th with 9.2 projected wins, the Titans 13th with 8 projected wins, and the Jaguars 18th with 7.6 projected wins.
