As we hit the 2/3rd pole, and the business end of the season begins to come into focus, its about time we review whats come to pass so far and predict whats to come as we move towards another Chargers v 49ers superbowl. We’ll begin with the AFC
|New England Patriots||5||5||0||0.500|
|New York Jets||1||9||0||0.100|
This looks to be Miami’s for the taking. With Buffalo and New England both struggling to find consistency at the quarterback position, Miami have capitalised and hold a comfortable 3 game lead, and in Cornel Ragland, they have the current front runner for the AFCs OROTY. The Patriots are still in the wildcard hunt, whilst the Bills and Jets are looking firmly to the off-season
The most competitive division in OOH Football. Any of the four teams could realistically win this division, and will likely result in some epic intra-divisional games in the final weeks of the season. This division will also produce one of the wildcards, with the Bengals currently holding their fate in their own hands.
|San Diego Chargers||9||1||0||0.900|
|Kansas City Chiefs||5||5||0||0.500|
No shocks here, the San Diego Chargers are way out in front and will secure a first round bye for the playoffs. The Raiders D is now one of the fiercest in the league and can keep games close. Surely Glyn couldn’t make the playoffs could he?? The Chiefs rookie QB is struggling mightily with turnovers despite putting up plenty of yards, and the Broncos are a streaky side who could come back to challenge for a wildcard come week 17.
We all knew Paul’s tanking season was never going to repeat itself, and has capitalised on an easy schedule to lead the division, despite trading away Marcus Mariota. A week 15 showdown with the Jags could decide the fate of the division, with the loser almost certain to secure a wildcard spot.Colts and Texans are now playing for pride
AFC OROTY Leaders
Cornel Ragland – MIAMI
DJ Darche – NY JETS
Kirkland Jeffers – SAN DIEGO
Hunter Hogans – KANSAS CITY
Philip Irwin – TENNESSEE
AFC DROTY Leaders
DeMarco Tolbert – SAN DIEGO
Martin Wilkins – CLEVELAND
Viliami Asiodu – TENNESSEE
Randall McMahon – NEW ENGLAND
Marcus Hester – NY JETS
|New York Giants||7||4||0||0.636|
The Giants look to be once again destined for the NFC Sim title, holding a comfortable 3 game lead. If any of the teams around them ever decide to play their games then we could maybe see another outcome, but for now, it looks like the effort put in to play will be rewarded for NY.
|Green Bay Packers||0||11||0||0.000|
JR bounces back, the Packers for some reason trade Rodgers to the Lions, a move that forces the owner to flee to back home to Chile until the dust settles, and the Vikings struggling with baby-brain syndrome. This was always likely to be a 2 horse race, and so it has proved. Week 14 these two square off again, with the division title and a bye on the line.
|San Francisco 49ers||8||2||0||0.800|
|Los Angeles Rams||2||7||1||0.250|
Seems CB has some competition this year. Jerry is starting to finally show his true form and has his Seahawks breathing down the next of the 49ers. Could we see the heir of SC dethroned this season? With both games played, its down to who can now hold their bottle. Arizona are showing improved signs in what is an incredibly tough division.
|New Orleans Saints||7||3||0||0.700|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||1||10||0||0.091|
A year in which the Buccaneers were hoping to mount a challenge has materialised, and instead sees them eyeing up a top three pick in the draft. Due to an injury to the Panthers owner, this looks to be a two horse race between the Saints and Falcons. The week 9 tie v the Rams could come back to haunt the Falcons come week 17, and could cost them both a division title and a wildcard spot
