    Dating back to our losses in 2009 and into this current season, Green Bay's average margin of defeat is 5.75, with the worse lose by 12. Just a fun fact. So, take Green Bay with the points if you ever have the chance and tease it just for a guaranteed buck if you're a betting man.

      I think the winner of the Giants-Eagles game on Sunday night will determine the best team in the NFC.

      Remember that the Eagles destroyed the Falcons earlier this year, so they're probably already better than the Falcons on a man-to-man basis, however the Falcons do have a nice home field advantage if it comes down to that in the playoffs.

      The only other teams I can see challenging the winner of the Giants-Eagles game are the Packers and the Saints, but both of these teams have issues with injuries this year. However, I won't count them out because their QBs are both elite and their defenses can play very well on any given day.

          People don't realize how good this Packer's defense is. It's an elite defense. Last year elite QBs tore us apart.. but guess what, elite QBs tear people apart.

          Last time I checked we were leading the league in Points Allowed Per Game, Sacks, in the top 5 for takeaways, and top 15 in YPG (a deceptive stat.) We also have the only shutout this year.. and it's over a 7-2 team.

          Pack has won 3 in a row and is T-2nd best record in the NFC. 2-5 is a preference thing but you can make as good a case for GB as any of the other teams.

          We play the Giants and Falcons and have already beaten the Eagles, so by the end of the year it'll be pretty clear where we stand.

            Are you implying the Jets are the NFL's best team? They're 5-0 on the road, yet 2-2 at home. Or do they have to show that they can consistently win at home? Although the Jets past two games have gone to overtime against former doormats, their two losses are two Baltimore and Green Bay, by a combined 10 points (Lost by 1 to Baltimore).

              I'm not really sure if you can use a shutout in the "but they barely lost" category. :p

                While I did say not to jump on the bandwagon, I will say putting two teams the Pats beat ahead of them is a little silly. At this point I'd have the Jets first.

                  The giants are really banged up right now and if we can keep injuries from taking us out of it I think the Giants will be the NFC rep. The defense is the most dominant in the league when healthy and attacking. Offensively the passing game is really studly and Ahmad's a beast but the OL needs to get healthy just to be solid.

                  All of that said I'm much more comfortable after that Dallas loss. This team needs people to doubt them and we were getting too complacent even if we came out with a more passive game plan to shield our defenders from injury and our blitzes from getting too much tape on them.

                  Philly's playing really well but that D is still a work in progress and offensively you have to wonder how long Vick and that OL will hold up.

                  The Falcons look like they'll snag homefield advantage and it's really tough to beat that team in a Dome. Still think that they're not ready for a major playoff run and they'll get knocked off before the NFC title game, but I do think they'll end up with the NFC's best record.

                  The Saints just don't have the same mojo going for them so while I think they'll be in the playoffs and maybe even snag a wildcard win, I don't expect them to make it deep.

                  Finally The packers. I still think that secondary is beatable and Rodgers has made a lot of people on this board's statistical predictions for him look silly which has proved that he is in fact, at least partially mortal.

                  WCR:
                  Eagles beat Saints, Bears or Bucs
                  I actually have a better feeling about the Bears and Bucs than the Saints just in terms of luck and building second half momentum, but I do expect it to be the Saints. In any event if Vick is healthy, which he would need to be for the Iggles to take the division like I have them, I think they beat any of those 3.

                  Giants beat Seahawks or Rams
                  I fully expect it to be the Hawks, but I'm rooting for Spags and the Rams. Seattle's got a really strong home field advantage but any team that comes out of that division is going to get stomped in the Wildcard round.

                  DR:
                  Giants beat Falcons
                  If both teams are healthy the giants have the better defense and quarterback to decide this match up. I like Ryan a lot and he reminds me of Eli, but I think with Eli being better and having to do it against a lesser D with comparable weapons we'd pull it out if healthy.

                  Packers beat Iggles
                  I think Clay Matthews and Co. would be able to slow down the Vickster enough for Rodgers to beat up on that Iggles secondary. This will be so much fun to watch, but in the end I have Rodgers ending Vick's fairytale.

                  NFCCG:
                  Giants beat Packers
                  I just think the giants have the better D and running game while Eli and Rodgers is a lot closer than anyone would admit during the summer. Rodgers may put up bigger numbers, but at the end of the game I think Eli has a better chance of picking apart the Packers secondary than Rodgers does against the giants secondary, especially since our pass rush is so much more diversified and spread around making it harder for Rodgers and the OL to just key in one guy like we will have to do to try and slow down Clay Matthews.

                          The Pats got steamrolled by the Browns and I don't have faith in that defense whatsoever. I think the Steelers, once they gel back with Big Ben, are better overall as are the Ravens. While I do agree it's a bit silly to have two teams they beat ahead of them, those two teams don't have a nasty loss like the Browns.

                          Also, the Jets got shutout and nearly lost to the Lions and Browns. Hard to consider them elite right now, imo.

                          The cool thing about this year is that 100 people can realistically have a differently ordered 1-5 for each conference and have valid points. No elite teams, YET, and a lot of parity.

                            I really dont see how the Jets can only be the 5th team in the AFC. The mark of a good side is winning close games that they could have easily lost. They could have and should have lost against both the Browns and Lions but came away with the W. That is by far the most important stat in the NFL, Wins. Quite simply the Jets have the joint best record in the AFC and manhandled the other team with the same record.

                            This week will be very important to determining the best team in the AFC. I think no matter what, if the Pats beat the Colts then they will be the best team in the AFC. They will have beaten the Ravens, beaten the Colts, pounded the Steelers, beaten the Chargers-all of who will likely be in the playoffs and three of them in the top 5 in the above rankings.
