Oakland Raiders Have The Best Win Average Compared To Broncos, Colts, Chiefs

If you need a little encouragement, look at the data presented in this article. The win average over the history of the four franchises shows that the Oakland Raiders have .549 above the Broncos, Colts and Chiefs.

Broncos 0.523                         Colts 0.521                         Chiefs 0.519                         Oakland 0.549                             2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 to date Oakland total wins 12 10 11 4 5 4 2 4 5 5 6  

Focusing only on the Oakland Raider's total wins since 2000, we see that the pattern shows a monotonic sequence from 2006 to date: two, four, five, five, six. The number of total wins per season is increasing.

During the history of the franchise, it seems that Oakland has earned above 300 points 36 times, if we include the 314 points already earned in 2010. This means that about 70 percent of the time, the Oakland Raiders will earn more than 300 points per season. So this year's team is in good standing when compared to previous years.

Hitting a total of 400 points in one season would be outstanding. There is still time enough to do that. Again, looking back at history we can make a few observations.

A chart showing the seasons when the Oakland Raiders scored above 400 points is revealing and inspiring.

The wide receivers during those high scoring years are noted.
