I've been going over past team records in the NFL with absolute emphasis on the original AFL/AFC teams. Since there is so much information, I am going to break this apart into different threads. (Don't worry, I won't be hijacking the board). It just makes it easier for peeps to peruse and study the information.

For starters: The records of all the teams in the AFL/AFC

Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders

396 – 263 – 11 .599%
15 Division Championships
21 Playoff appearances

Kansas City Chiefs

356 – 308 – 12 .536%
8 Division Championships
14 Playoff appearances

Denver Broncos

16 Playoff appearances

64 Playoff appearances

AFC EAST

1307 – 1284 – 29 .498%

Yep, I stated it in their final analysis:

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

There is one thing to be said about the Chargers- they are consistently bad. Therefore, it is not surprising to see that they’ve only made one Super Bowl appearance and still managed to lose even that. They have been stuck in a tough division with Oakland, Denver, and Kansas City all having better than average records, but San Diego seemingly could do nothing more than play average football for the most part. However, they’ve managed to win more Division titles than Denver and Kansas City.

Seems like they were the poster children for the strength of schedule approach to scheduling. Didn't they have a string of first-to-worst years?

"Air Coryell" years helped tremendously there. Those teams were basically what we had under Vermeil: ultra-high octane offense, but failure to capitalize in the playoffs. Our _efense was MUCH worse than theirs.... they had Merl Olsen fercrissakes!

You also should include their playoff records.

You should count The Colts, Steelers and Browns from 70
