Brian Burke (ESPN Stats & Info) returns to discuss the latest trends in FPI rankings. He and Dave discuss the recent performance of the Texans, Lions, Chiefs and Redskins and what their FPI rankings mean for their performance going forward. Brian discusses his recent work integrating win probability onto ESPN platforms in preparation for the Playoffs.

Dave decides to poke the bear and dive into Brian’s twitter posts and they get into a discussion of what “the eye test” really means and why it’s essential to define assumptions in any debate. They close out the episode with a look at the playoff probability leverage of key week 13 games.
