Yeah. Not history yet. Let me know when it actually happens (it won't)

Let's not jump the gun - I can't speak for the Patriots, Ravens and Texans, but if the Broncos have no chance of improving their playoff seeding in the last game, I don't expect manning and the first team offense to play more than a couple of series against the Chiefs, leaving them vulnerable.

Of course, it IS the Chiefs.

In fact, I'd say it's the nth year in a row that it might happen, with n being the number of years since the league was split into divisions.

The Ravens will have their hands full with the Bengals who might be in a fight for a wildcard spot at that point.

Green Bay is undefeated in their division and NOT in the AFC, subtard.

The article also points out that San Francisco is technically undefeated in division play this year.

Came to say this. The AFC is like the SEC this year: Good at the top and turrible below that level.

Pretty much this. I expect the Texans the Texans to be 13-2 at worst by the team Week 17 rolls around, so they won't have much to play for by then. NE has San Fran and Houston left, but they also haven't lost their ridiculous division game to the Phins yet either.

Yes but like a bullied kid they remember the Peyton days. I don't see them ever giving a game to the Colts... ever.

When Miami was running hot I thought they would split the series with the Patriots. Now that's doubtful to say the least. Sunday is probably the only chance for that to happen, and not bloody likely with the Dolphins porous secondary.

OK, so there are three or four examples of how subtard is a tard, instead of 4 or 5.

Woo.

They have yet to lose - even playing the mighty 49ers to a tie. It is unlikely that they go undefeated in the division, but they might.  And, ultimately, that is what the headline stated.

Technically in 1997 the Giants did go undefeated with a 7-0-1 record in the NFC East - as they did not *lose* a game. This means both the Giants and 49ers had undefeated divisional season in 1997. The first team to have a perfect 8-0 record in the NFC East was the Cowboys in the following year.

September 19, 2010: The last time the Bengals beat Baltimore.

December 5, 2010: The last time the Ravens lost a divisional game.

September 10, 2012: The last time the two teams played. Final score: Baltimore 44, Cincinnati 13.

Just sayin'. ;)

Colts fan here.
SO MUCH THIS! Any of the other teams in our division, if they were in a position to grind our heads into the ground, they would do it no matter what.

If we stand any shot at winning against Houston this year, it will be because we took a win, not because they gave us one by resting starters.

Same goes for the Pats. If they don't have a shot at grabbing one of the top two seeds going into Week 17 (pretty likely given the schedules for the 4 top teams in the AFC) I can't see them playing the starters very much against the Dolphins. That goes double if Miami ends up being a potential first-round matchup in the playoffs.

No dog in this fight but watching the past few weeks Cinci is getting better and the Ravens not so much.

I would say it is impossible for the Rams AND San Fran to win the division, and San Fran definitely has the edge to be the highlander here.

2 things -

1) it's possible they have a 2 seed locked up by then with no shot at a 1. They sit starters. (Locking up the 1 w/a loss to HOU near impossible.)

2) it's a road game, and WTF is with the offense on the road?

I think you'll have to wait for the playoffs. I see every AFC division leader now keeping it, Falcons, 49ers, and Giants in NFC. Bears or Pack from the NFC North.

Wildcards will be decided late, but given schedules for those in the running, I don't see a potential for a team to streak in now.
