The top three teams in the AFC all lost this past week.
The Chiefs, the fourth-best team in the conference, have allowed 30 or more points in three of their last four, while the Colts, the AFC South champion, have limped to the playoffs, despite winning this past weekend.
Is the AFC the minor league?
With two weeks to go, as we head to the playoffs, it's easy to sit here and say the NFC is the superior conference, with Seattle the clear top team in the league. But the NFC has potential playoff teams that have flaws too.
It's too simple to say Seattle will win it all, and right now they sure have that look, which is why they are atop the Power Rankings this week. But that's the simple way out.
The top seed in the NFC hasn't been to the Super Bowl since 2009 when the Saints won it all.
The uncertainty of it all is what makes the NFL so popular. Here we are less than three weeks from the playoffs and none of us has any idea who will be playing in the Super Bowl.
There are four teams in my top 10 here that lost last week, including Denver, Cincinnati and New Orleans all being embarrassed in the process.
That leaves open the idea that those three teams aren't Super worthy. But as this season has taught us things can change quickly.
Just ask the Miami Dolphins. They were dead and buried seven weeks ago, but now with two victories they can lock up a playoff berth.
And the way things are going they will be a dangerous No. 6 seed.
You have a grasp on all this? I sure don't.
