How does the nfl calculate the Cincinati Bengals winning percentage with a 10-4-1 record as .700?

I did the math with 14 and 15 games played and my numbers don't add up to their numbers.

Ties are counted as half wins. So 10.5/15 = .7

Credit to Peter King's MMQB this week for pointing out the half win for a tie rule.

    +1. You could also have taken 0.7*15 to give the number of wins as 10.5 and with a bit of analysis realised that the tie was half a win. – DannyBland Dec 23 '14 at 16:04
