Final Domination Index of Season
The Indianapolis Colts ended 2007 as the Most Dominant Team in the NFL according to our Domination Index. Considering they play in the AFC South, where every team was at least .500 for the season, they had a much stronger strength of schedule than the New England Patriots, who play in the AFC East, where only the Pats had a winning (granted perfect) record.
The Philadelphia Eagles, who play in the NFC East (the other division where no team had a losing record in 2007), were first in strength of schedule and the Washington Redskins were second. In fact, 8 of the Top 10 teams in the strength of schedule category are the 8 teams from the AFC South and NFC East.
If we exclude the strength of schedule component from our Index, the Pats are clearly the most dominant team. The Patriots were first in 5 of the 8 categories. That being said, the Colts were second in 5 of the 8 categories. Here are the Top 10 teams in our Index (strength of schedule excluded):
