Listen, we know the AFC is a better overall conference than the NFC, but if you watched the games this weekend are you still that sure? We've maintained all year that the NFC is not as bad as everyone seems to think it is. For further proof, let's just look at the numbers of all eight quarterbacks this weekend by conference. The four AFC QBs combined to have a 52.0 rating (74/142 853yds 2TD 8INT). The NFC QBs had an 82.2 rating (74/133 960 yds 4TD 2INT). In each AFC game there were more turnovers than the NFC teams had combined this weekend. The Colts/Ravens game had 6 turnovers, the Pats/Bolts game had 7, and the NFC had 4 combined. We realize this is only one weekend, but who would have thought that of the four quarterbacks still alive, Brees and Grossman would be playing the best? Of course, after Brees and Rexstacy throw five picks apiece next week, none of this will be relevant. Our only point is that while a few weeks ago, we were pretty sure the NFC teams were only playing for a Super Bowl berth, now we're confident that the Saints or Bears can beat either team remaining in the AFC.
