The State of the NFC

As promised, let’s take a look at the NFC in light of Tampa Bay’s win and cover over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

While a lot of AFC teams seem pretty interchangeable and the race for the divisions and the Wild Cards are up in the air, there is a pretty well-defined playoff picture in the NFC. Five teams now have at least seven wins. Five teams have five wins. One of them, the Eagles, has a Charmin-soft schedule the rest of the way until facing the Cowboys in Week 18. The way things are shaping up, Dallas could be resting some players by then.

The Rams face a really big test this week. They’ll take on the Packers and have not really looked the part against good teams. Even in the win over the Buccaneers, Tampa Bay had a 39-yard edge and 411 passing yards, but only 24 points. Speaking of the Bucs, they’re always dangerous with Tom Brady, even though the 7-3 record feels a little fortunate to this point.

The Cardinals need Kyler Murray to get healthy and it would seem that a few weeks off plus the bye week should be good enough for the stretch run. The Cowboys have an explosive offense and will be a dangerous team. While it seems like the AFC is wide open, it’s because most of the teams just aren’t very good. The NFC is wide open beacuse a lot of teams are good and anybody could beat anybody.

With Week 11 in the books, DraftKings has the following odds for the NFC teams for Super Bowl LVI:

Bucs +600
Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys +900
Packers +1000

It is worth noting that the highest odds for a five-win team belong to the Vikings and 49ers. The Eagles actually have the weakest schedule and 60/1 is kind of intriguing with the way they are playing to go along with two games against the Giants, two against Washington and the Jets. If Dallas rests everybody in Week 18, the Eagles are the only one of the five-win teams that will be favored in every game.
