The Cowboys proved themselves this week as their quarterback Dak Prescott also earned the top spot over a recovering Tony Romo. They faced a potential playoff-bound Pittsburgh Steelers. The impressive win keeps Dallas on top of the NFC.
The Seattle Seahawks also had an impressive win against an AFC powerhouse, the New England Patriots, a team that seemed unbeatable. Seattle is proving they are at the top of the NFC and have always been strong in the second half of the season.
The Lions and the Falcons are the other two division leaders that don't look as impressive. I root for the Falcons but it is tough to watch them lose to the Eagles. Dallas is at the top of one tough division with the Giants, the Eagles, and the Redskins, all three of them are in line to take the two wild card spots.
The Patriots remain at the top but they lost this week. The two teams I'm looking at are Kansas City and Baltimore.
The Chiefs have risen to the top of a competitive AFC West after winning five straight. They are going to have to fend off the Broncos and Raiders who can win the top spot in Kansas City.
The Ravens have risen to the top of a bad division and will still have to face Dallas and their divisional foes, like Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.
The Texans have stayed afloat against not much competition. The AFC West fills out the rest of the Wild Card with Denver and Oakland.
I'm looking forward to Baltimore vs. Dallas, Philadelphia vs. Seattle, and the Houston vs. Oakland on Monday night.
