That order can't be right. The Niners and Panthers have the same record, 5-7, and the Panthers have played a much more difficult schedule. If anything, the teams should be reversed, with the Niners' own pick earlier.
Carolina opponents have a winning % of 51%, while ours is 54%. Lower SOS = higher pick.
I was skeptical of your numbers since last week the Niners had an opponents' winning % of .494, while the Panthers had a .557.
However, I just ran the numbers, and.....Wow, the tables turned dramatically in one week. I've not seen this dramatic a switch in a long time, so....I apologize for doubting your earlier post.
Mea Culpa, and good news for Niners' fans as the pick becomes an earlier selection. However, the good times may end soon, as the Panthers now play four teams in a row with winning records.
The Niners' opponents' winning percentage probably apexed this week. The Lions are going to hack into that winning % soon, which, once again, is a good thing for us.
