and a far easier schedule, so I would have to go with the Browns).
The supremacy of the NFC may be decided a week after Thanksgiving, as the two 10-1 teams, Dallas and Green Bay, face off. The winner will have a two-game advantage for home-field advantage (a one-game lead with win and all tie-breakers with win in head-to-head). The NFC West is extremely weak (no shock) and the NFC South is in shambles with the Vick-less Falcons and the on-and-off New Orleans Saints.
The NFC playoff picture is a little murky after the #5 seed. The top seed should be #1) Green Bay, #2) Dallas, #3) Tampa Bay, #4) Seattle, #5) NY Giants, #6) take your pick-seven teams are currently either 6-5 or 5-6. If I had to choose one, it would be Detroit.
Everyone has four teams penciled in as Super Bowl teams (Pats, Colts, Cowboys, Packers), it's just a question of who faces who. The dark horse of the NFC will be the NY Giants. Three of their four losses came at the hands of Dallas and Green Bay. Being a #5 seed, the Giants will face the #4 seed (@ #4 home) and judging from the NFC South and West, that team could be 8-8 or 9-7 by January.
The AFC is full of dark horses. San Diego and Pittsburgh can be world-beaters when they want to. Jacksonville can shut down the run
