Are The Winless Pelicans And Sixers Equally Bad?
FiveThirtyEight
 

Welcome to the latest episode of Hot Takedown, FiveThirtyEight’s sports podcast. On this week’s show (Nov. 8 , 2016), we chat about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and wonder if the numbers can tell us anything about whether the Cowboys should start Tony Romo when he is healthy again. Then we preview FiveThirtyEight’s college football predictions and Neil Paine explains why working out the selection committee’s rankings makes forecasting the playoff a little harder than usual. Finally, new FiveThirtyEight sports writer Chris Herring joins to chat about bad teams in the NBA and whether the process is finally beginning to pay off for the Philadelphia 76ers. Plus, a special Election Day quiz on the best presidents in American history.
