Another issue is that the NFC is at its lowest point in decades. One major aspect of this is the horrific hellzone that is the NFC South. The division’s garbage displays forced analysts to question if the postseason should ban teams with losing records. The likes of the Saints and the Falcons made football an unwatchable product.
Yes, there are some good or even great teams like the Eagles and the Niners. But there’s a clear quality difference between the AFC and the NFC. Even weaker AFC teams like the Jets have outstanding defenses. Their counterparts on the NFC side have nothing positive about them (via The Ringer).
