Non-divisional NFL records

After three games we have our first look at the records of each division OUTSIDE of their respective divisions.

NFC EAST 8-0
NFC NORTH 2-6
NFC SOUTH 5-3
NFC WEST 2-4

AFC EAST 4-2
AFC NORTH 1-4
AFC SOUTH 2-3
AFC WEST 2-4

Now, it is only 3 weeks into the season. Too early to be making broad sweeping conclusions about ANYTHING. But the early returns are in and we can see some trends- the NFC EAST is clearly for real. No rush to judgement. We all want to condemn certain divisions as kaput, but the data right now is still too small. To have an outlier like 8-0 is significant for the NFC East though. We knew that with McNabb healthy at the end of last season and that team finishing at the bottom at 8-8, that that meant trouble top to bottom. Even the Redskins are playing a little better than a new head coach would normally imply. This is all good for the Giants. You want a strong division. Let three of the four teams make it to the playoffs. That would be the third consecutive year that that has happened from the NFC East. A good thing. No sleepwalking for the Giants through the division.
