Wow, is the NFC weak or what?

I'm not even thinking playoffs until this team shows improvement.

We SHOULD be 7-3 and in comfortable playoff position by week 12, but that would still leave us without a single win over a decent opponent.

Jacksonville has it pretty easy finishing the season. But then you don't know how good or bad they are right now.

Combined record of AFC playoff teams. 32-12

Combined record of NFC playoff teams. 29-13

The gap is closing, but the AFC still has a slight edge overall.

Yeah, no kidding. Vikes, Pack, Philly all tripping up will make for some new faces in the playoffs this year.

I actually heard this from a Chicago sports radio show: It's Da Bears division to lose. I chuckled.

That doesn't mean anything anyway. Just comparing the quality of the teams, specifically at the top, it's still lopsided.

You have to figure in the AFC record vs. NFC teams.

No, I really don't need any stats. Just having watched all these teams, it's pretty clear to me the AFC is still superior, and by a good margin.

NFC leads 18-17.

It's not as lopsided as it has been the last few years was the point I was trying to make..

I'll agree with that as I think the AFC is weaker than it's been in the past. But the NFC is still as weak as I can remember.

You rang?

Jacksonville-KC tiebreaker

1. Head-to-head, if applicable.
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.

1. Not applicable
2. Both teams are 3-2 in the conference
3. By the end of the season, both teams will play the Jets, Bengals, Browns and Texans. That is 4 games so this tiebreaker will apply. Right now Jacksonville is 2-1 in those games, and KC is 1-1 so we are behind in the race. I guess if you want to say that 4 games have not been played yet, but that is just putting off the inevitable.

They haven't been played yet so you're not supposed to count'em. :)

Yeah, I'm skipping that at the moment since 4 games haven't been played.

I think you meant Denver instead of Cleveland, too, which kind of stinks since we play them twice. That means we've got to count two games against Denver against their one, and they get to count two games against Houston against our one.

I hate to blow anyone's bubble here but at this point KC is NOT a playoff team by any means. SD and Jax are both better teams. This week we need to put up or shut up because I don't think 10-6 will get us into the playoffs in the AFC this year. the Chiefs have a lot of work to do.

I ran one 10-6 senario this week (I think the losses were against Giants, Denver and SD) but KC made it about 70% of the time. Cinncinatti is also a strong challenger for a wild card.

Yeah, you're right. I always have a hard time telling the difference between those two teams.

Yeah, that's a hard distinction to make. I think the main difference is that the Browns don't have a reputation of being cheaters.

HA! CBS just posted a graphic showing the WC race. Jacksonville had the 6th spot, KC 7th.
