The Mighty NFC West

Jonathan Ferrey

I was reading some of the invective on TST yesterday, and while I get that nobody loves the team that just beat them, I still wish there was more camaraderie amongst the fellow NFC West members. Except for the Niners. Screw them.

Anyways, I grabbed some numbers that the divisions put up to see how they all compare. As you might imagine, the NFC West kinda rocks:

Division

WOD

TPD

PD/G

AFC EAST

22

-58

-1.45

AFC NORTH

19

4

0.1

AFC SOUTH

12

-318

-7.95

AFC WEST

25

249

6.225

NFC EAST

16

-166

-4.15

NFC NORTH

17

-114

-2.85

NFC SOUTH

19

44

1.1

NFC WEST

30

359

8.975

WOD - Wins outside the division

TPD - Total Point Differential

PD/G - Point Differential per Game

Wins Outside the Division - Since each team plays six games within the division, then each team plays 10 outside the division, for 40 total games. The NFC West killed it, winning 30 out of their 40 games outside the division. It helps that we played the AFC South, who could only muster 12 wins outside their division. Then again, maybe they were so bad because they played us. Chicken or egg...

TPD - I added up the total point differential for each team to get a divisional point differential. The interesting thing is that all the games played within the division will have their point differentials zero out. So, when we add up all 4 teams point differential, it reflects the differential for just the 40 games outside the division. The NFC West outscored their non-divisional opponents by 359 points, or by almost 9 points per game in those 40 games. That's dominating.
