There is no doubt about which team has been the best in the AFC. Patriots are sitting at 7-1 even tough their starting quarterback and one of the best of all time has missed team’s first four games. They are undefeated with him playing and are looking like a lock to make it to the postseason.
We expected Patriots to be this good, but we really didn’t expect the Cowboys to lead the NFC after the first half of the NFL season. They are 6-1 and looking maybe even like the best team in their conference. The best argument for the Cowboys is that there is no team that is for sure better than them.
NFC has been much stronger in the past couple of seasons with Seahawks, Packers, Cardinals, Panthers and even 49ers in not that distant past. Now, all of these teams are having their problems, Seattle is the best out of them, but they can’t block on offense, and their O-line needs to step up. That kind of a problem you can’t easily fix in the middle of the season.
As of right now, this might be the most likely matchup. Other teams are not to be underestimated in the NFC. Rodgers can always make some noise just like that Legion of Boom in Seattle. But still, Cowboys are the best in the NFC right now, and there is no doubt about the fact that Tom Brady is running the show in AFC.
