Biggest Takeaway in the AFC East
Jason- The Bills streak of missing the playoffs will continue until they find a QB, not named Tyrod Taylor, that they believe is the future.
Dylan- With another Bills loss, the AFC East has come back to earth and the Patriots are firmly in control.
Dan- New England is still my favorite for the Super Bowl.
Zach- The Bills proved that they are a pretender. This is the Patriots’ division to lose.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC North
Jason- None of the teams in the division looked deserving of a playoff spot this week.
Dylan- The Bengals are a bad football team right now. They do have an easy schedule the rest of the year, but it would take a miracle for them to make the playoffs.
Dan- The Steelers are still for real.
Zach- The Browns actually looked pretty good until Kizer left the game with an injury. He showed a little promise.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC South
Jason- The Jags didn’t win pretty but it worked and that’s the story of Blake Bortles’ season.
Dylan- The Colts could and should be next year’s Rams as long as they get a new coach. They could easily be 7-3 if not for blown second half leads.
Dan- This division is terrible, and whoever wins it will be demolished in the playoffs.
Zach- The perfect scenario happened for the Colts. Brissett played well to improve his trade value and they lost in order to improve their draft position.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC West
Jason- The Raiders and Chiefs extended their lead making it a 2 team race with one clear frontrunner.
Dylan- The Chargers and Broncos basically eliminated themselves from playoff contention with their losses.
Dan- It’s been a strange season for the Chargers, and that game summed it up.
Zach- Brock Osweiler reminded us all just how bad he is.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC East
Jason- The Eagles don’t even have to play for the positivity to continue… the division went 0-3
Dylan- The Cowboys’ problem this week wasn’t losing Zeke, it was not having Tyron Smith. They better have a plan at LT before facing the Eagles Sunday night.
Dan- Dallas’s offense is one of the worst in the league.
Zach- The Eagles are dominating this division…not much else to say.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC North
Jason- This is the Vikings’ to lose.
Dylan- Lions vs. Vikings on Thanksgiving is suddenly becoming a very important game in the NFC Playoff race.
Dan- We know Green Bay has quarterback problems, but they need to get their running backs healthy.
Zach- The Vikings are firmly in control of this division with their only real threat being the Lions.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC South
Jason- The Saints looked scary this week… they need to keep it rolling.
Dylan- The Falcons finally show some life, but they will need to go at least 4-1 over their 5 remaining division games to make the playoffs.
Dan- This Carolina offense could do something special if they play like this every week.
Zach- With an impressive performance, Cam Newton once again proves why he is the most inconsistent quarterback in the NFL.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC West
Jason- The Seahawks won, but not without a major loss in Richard Sherman… This is the Rams division.
Dylan- The Seahawks and Rams both have some really tough games coming up. Russell Wilson and Jared Goff will need to step up to keep their teams in the lead.
Dan- That was San Francisco’s only real shot of winning, and they came through.
Zach- The 49ers won…and should see more with Garoppolo playing.
