    Division Races As Of Week 11
    Ten weeks have been played and we still have as much as of an idea as to who will end up Division winners as we had in the preseason. If we have learned anything this season it is that anybody can be beaten(except for Vikes and Packers) on any week by anybody and no game is guaranteed. So with so much still to play out, let’s have a look at some of the division races around the league…

    [​IMG]
    AFC East
    New England Patriots thaexistence
    7-2 Overall
    2-1 Division
    5-1 Conference

    Buffalo Bills dritsch
    6-3 Overall
    2-1 Division
    5-2 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: Browns @ Patriots
    Week 12: Ravens @ Bills
    Week 13: Patriots @ Steelers
    Week 14: Steelers @ Bills
    Week 15: Bills @ Patriots
    Week 17: Patriots @ Cardinals

    With only a 1 game lead the Pats don't have much room for error. Having already lost to the Bills earlier in the season, the week 15 matchup between the 2 teams will loom large in determining who will win the division.

    AFC West
    Denver Broncos saintsdave75
    6-3 Overall
    2-2 Division
    4-2 Conference

    San Diego Chargers niner_empire86
    5-5 Overall
    2-3 Division
    4-4 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 13: Titans @ Broncos
    Week 13: Chargers @ Saints
    Week 14: Chargers @ Bucs
    Week 15: Broncos @ Chargers
    Week 15: Broncos @ Saints
    Week 16: Titans @ Chargers

    The Broncos have been coming on as of late while the Chargers are struggling. The path isn't easy for the Chargers to catch up as they face 4 teams currently over .500 but they can make up ground with a week 15 victory at home over the Broncos.

    AFC North
    Pittsburgh Steelers thafuture3886
    7-2 Overall
    2-2 Division
    5-2 Conference

    Baltimore Ravens guitarDADDY1208
    6-3 Overall
    3-1 Division
    4-3 Conference

    Cleveland Browns LtJustice
    5-4 Overall
    2-2 Division
    3-3 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: Browns @ Patriots

    Week 12: Ravens @ Bills
    Week 13: Cowboys @ Ravens
    Week 13: Patriots @ Steelers
    Week 14: Ravens @ Browns
    Week 14: Steelers @ Bills
    Week 15: Browns @ Chargers
    Week 15: Giants @ Ravens
    Week 17: Steelers @ Ravens

    The Steelers appear to be hitting their stride as of late and the Ravens have lost 2 in a row. The Browns are lurking in the background and are certainly capable of getting hot and winning the division. This division may come down to week 17 when the Steelers visit the Ravens.

    AFC South
    Tennessee Titans heathh
    5-4 Overall
    3-1 Division
    4-2 Conference

    Jacksonville Jaguars Ninersfan80
    3-6 Overall
    2-1 Division
    3-3 Conference

    Houston Texans dakota7
    3-6 Overall
    2-2 Division
    3-3 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 12: Titans @ Jaguars
    Week 12: Patriots @ Texans
    Week 13: Titans @ Broncos
    Week 14: Texans @ Jaguars
    Week 15: Titans @ Texans
    Week 16: Titans @ Chargers
    Week 16: Broncos @ Juaguars
    Week 17: Titans @ Packers
    Week 17: Chargers @ Jaguars

    The Titans hold the division lead now but this division is very close. With each team still having to play each other one more time this division can be turned upside down in weeks.

    [​IMG]
    NFC East
    New York Giants cry_havoc
    6-3 Overall
    4-0 Division
    5-2 Conference

    Dallas Cowboys CaptMoe
    4-5 Overall
    3-1 Division
    3-4 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: Seahawks @ Giants
    Week 12: Browns @ Cowboys
    Week 13: Giants @ Bucs
    Week 13: Ravens @ Cowboys
    Week 15: Giants @ Ravens
    Week 16: Giants @ Cowboys
    Week 17: Giants @ Vikings
    Week 17: 49ers @ Cowboys

    The Gmen hold a comfortable 2 game lead but their schedule is downright brutal going forward and loaded with road games. The Cowboys will have to win their week 16 game if they are serious about winning the division.

    NFC West
    San Francisco 49ers MrWitness36
    7-2 Overall
    2-0 Division
    4-2 Conference

    Seattle Seahawks CHUNKNESS
    6-3 Overall
    1-2 Division
    4-2 Conference

    St. Louis Rams Coach KO

    1-2 Division
    4-2 Conference

    Arizona Cardinals Mugga
    4-5 Overall
    2-2 Division
    3-5 Overall

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: 49ers @ Saints
    Week 11: Seahawks @ Giants
    Week 11: Cards @ Bills
    Week 13: 49ers @ Cards
    Week 13: Seahawks @ Rams
    Week 14: Cards @ Rams
    Week 14: 49ers @ Seahawks
    Week 15: 49ers @ Rams
    Week 16: Seahawks @ 49ers
    Week 16: Bucs @ Cards
    Week 17: 49ers @ Cowboys
    Week 17: Seahawks @ Bucs
    Week 17: Patriots @ Cards

    In a division where the first place team and last place team are separate by 3 games much can happen in these final 6 weeks. Each team still has plenty of division games left so it will be interesting to see who comes out the winner.

    [​IMG]
    NFC North
    Minnesota Vikings JSimms
    9-0 Overall
    2-0 Division
    5-0 Conference


    Green Bay Packers redlishus
    9-0 Overall
    1-0 Division
    6-0 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: Cowboys @ Vikings
    Week 12: Vikings @ Packers
    Week 14: Packers @ Vikings
    Week 16: Saints @ Vikings
    Week 17: Giants @ Vikings
    Week 17: Titans @ Packers

    The only 2 undefeated teams are in the same division. And with both matchups still coming up there is a good chance both will have 1 loss before all is said and done.

    [​IMG]
    NFC South
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jeremy
    8-1 Overall
    3-0 Division
    5-1 Conference

    New Orleans Saints ThaBayouChef
    6-3 Overall
    3-1 Division
    5-3 Conference

    Games to watch:
    Week 11: 49ers @ Saints
    Week 12: Bucs @ Saints
    Week 13: Chargers @ Saints
    Week 13: Giants @ Bucs
    Week 14: Chargers @ Bucs
    Week 15: Broncos @ Saints
    Week 16: Bucs @ Cards
    Week 16: Saints @ Vikings
    Week 17: Seahawks @ Bucs

    The Bucs are sneaking under the radar but are one of the better teams in the league. Both the Saints and Bucs have brutal schedules heading down the stretch and with a week 12 matchup against each other the Saints can make up ground in hopes of capturing the division crown.
