wskin44 Posted October 31, 2005 Share Posted October 31, 2005 Comparing the 2005 season to date to the previous 4 seasons, the homefield advantage is significantly stronger this season. Historically teams win 57.7% of their home games. This season teams are winning 66.4% of their home games. The highest percentage was 61.3% in 2003. The difference in the NFC is even bigger. The 4 year average home winning % in the NFC is 56.3%. The highest % was in 2003 at 61.7%. This year NFC teams are winning 71.2% of their home games, 14.9 percentage points higher than the 4 year average. I don't know if it traditionaly gets easier to win on the road as a season goes on, but for right now if you want to make the playoffs you better win at home. Particularly in the NFC. The NFC East is 13-1 at home. The only home loss was dallas' loss at home to Washington. The NFC East will be won by whatever team can hold serve at home and then steal some road wins.
