    Re: Is AFC East a weak division?

    In response to DanishPastry's comment:

    Our resident Giants and Colts fans usually claim that the AFC is a poor division, and thereby try to diminish the results of our team. But if the claim were true, then it should mean the AFC East has a poor out-of-division record.

    Well, this is the sum of out-of-division W-L record over the past 5 years.

    1. AFC N              (107-93)
    2. NFC S/AFC E    (106-94)
    4. NFC N              (105-95)
    5. NFC W             (96-104)
    6. NFC E/AFC W   (95-105)
    8. AFC S              (89-111

    A couple of observations. The AFC East is steady, generally in the top half year to year. The NFC E had one winning season - back in 2009, but has been loosing out of division ever since. NFC W has gone from last to first, where AFC S has gone from first to last.  Looking at the numbers you could argue that AFC S is in a category of s*ckiness all by itself.

    So, is AFC E a great division. No, I don't think it is, but it does better than I would have thought. And fans of the Giants and the Colts better turn it down a notch or two!


     




    What are the records for each division if the record for the #1 team in that division is taken away?

    Take the Jets and Patriots out of the AFC East and it's an average division this year, with two teams looking at their dwindling but nonzero playoff chances.  

    For some reason the Bills, Dolphins and Jets haven't bothered to field a contender in the last 14 years.  That's not exactly a strong division, except for the Patriots.  Of course, they all had to play the Pats twice a year.
