No luck, no win this past weekend for the top 2 lucky teams.
Total team luck points through the play-offs(week 19):
Luck is tracked to better analyze a team's true ability and to help predict results of upcoming games where some may not know what portion of a team's record and points performance was due to just luck.
For a more in-depth explanation of what "luck" points are, go to a previous post here.
Points for(+) the unlucky team, are the same amount of points against(-) the lucky team, and are valued as follows:
field goal miss/block=2.5
punt returns for a TD=4.5
ko returns for a TD=4.5
Team luck points = (bad luck points)-(good luck points), so negative numbers are the luckiest.
|Season||Team||All Season||Last 2 Games||Last Game|
The 2 luckiest teams this season(New England and Atlanta) just couldn't win without their usual "luck".
