Undefeated But Unequal?

Question:  which of the NFL’s two remaining undefeated teams – the Denver Broncos & Kansas City Chiefs – is better?

Pencils down.  The correct answer is the Denver Broncos.

I can say this with absolute certainty because my middle school math teacher taught me the transitive property.  If A > B and B > C, A > C.  It’s a core tenant of all competition (except college football).

As my teacher would insist, lemme show my work – and apply this simple property to the 2013 NFL season.

The Broncos are the best because they beat the Cowboys, who beat the Rams, who beat the Cardinals, who beat the Lions, who beat the Bears, who beat the Browns, who beat the Bengals, who beat the Patriots, who beat the Saints, who beat the Dolphins, who beat the Colts, who – in addition to beating the Niners (who’ve beaten the Packers) – also beat Seahawks, who beat the Panthers, who beat the Vikings, who beat the Steelers, who beat the Jets, who beat the Bills, who beat the Ravens, who beat the Texans, who beat the Titans, who beat the Chargers, who beat the Eagles, who beat the Redskins, who beat the Raiders, who beat the Jags, who have ugly helmets.

See?  Easy!

Wait.  I just thought of something.  The Chiefs also beat the Cowboys.  Hmm.  Maybe we should just have Denver and KC head-to-head.  Matter of fact, let’s have ‘em play twice.

Fixed!  (Phew… that was almost embarrassing.)
