Record is the same thing as win%, just a different way of expressing it. There is actually a perfect example right now in the real nfl though, because of the bengals-panthers game that ended in the rarely seen tie. Look at the standings of the AFC North. The Bengals are in first place with 3 wins 1 loss and 1 tie. They call this a .700 win percentage, since its halfway between .800 (if they were 4-1) and .600 (if they were 3-2).

The ravens are in second place even though they have played 6 games and have a 4-2 record, .667 win percentage.

So even though the bengals have played 1 less game, they are in first because they have a higher win% (aka better record)
"Outside of Cleveland, leave it to the Cincinnati Bengals for throwing a wrench into the standings by tying the Carolina Panthers Sunday and moving their record to 3-1-1. Due to winning percentage, the Bengals hang onto first place in the division, but that could be in jeopardy looking at their upcoming schedule."

Again this doesn't matter at all right now since there are still a lot of games to be played, I just thought I'd point that out
Yup, you're right. And my comment was erroneous. Actually there are other tie breaking procedures if there is a tie in records. Win percentage would be the same.

That's so weird to me though considering the Ravens have more wins but it makes sense since they haven't played the same number of games.

And same goes here, not everyone has played the same amount of games but seeing as how in the NFL they go by win percentage I'll make it the same. Thanks for pointing that out bud. Smile
