Which division is stronger? AFC East or NFC North?

Looking at how they did last year. AFC East had the Patriots go 16-0, but there was no other team above .500

The NFC North is usually called the weakest division and the 1st place team Packers were 13-3 yet there was no team that went 1-15.

What division do you feel is better (not team)? Why?

    The NFC North for sure. If you put the Packers and Patriots at the top of their division as they have often been in recent years, you can expect much more from the Bears, Lions, and Vikings than from the Bills, Dolphins and Jets. The remaining teams from the North will at least contend for the division, but not many will expect the lower AFC East teams to accomplish much.

    It's definitely the NFC North (Pats fan), because damn Dolphins make the AFC East weak with a record of 1-15 and none of the NFC North team go below like 4-12 last year.

  • The NFC North..and not just because I'm a fan of a team in that division(the Packers) but because I feel it's a much more competitive division. When all of the preseason magazines and all the predictions are made...the AFC East champion is going to be unanimous..the Patriots. I think that NFC North is much more competitive from top to bottom.

    AFC East SUCKS like none other. The Patriots did great, but each team in the rest of the division had more losses than wins.

    The NFC North is a better division, though they aren't exactly strong.

    NFC north

    a different team has won that division in the last...decade

    the Pats are the only team in the AFC east that is even worth anything

    The nfc north has no good team outside of the Vickings who are about a 10-6 team. the Pats are a 14-2 or more team!

    AFC has some Very good teams and some Very bad teams. The NFC North is more balanced

    Last year... the NFC North... this year probably the NFC North... haha, umm... they have the Packers... Adrian Peterson and the Vikings... the Lions who are waiting to explode and the DA BEARS who were in the superbowl the year before last. At the same time though... you have to look at strength of schedule of all teams... but I'd still give an edge to the NFC North.

    NFC North. All teams are contenders for the playoffs. Not so in the AFC East.

    NFC North is better! the real "weak" division is the NFC South and the AFC West!!!
