Despite some changes to team policies and rules this year, the NFL season has been moving along. Games have been played, teams have been winning and losing and progress toward crowning another Super Bowl champion has been made. After the first six weeks of the regular season (not including the two games played on Monday), here is where things stand as of now:
The Seattle Seahawks have yet to lose a game and are currently standing at an undefeated record of five wins with zero losses and are leading the NFC West. In second place is the Los Angeles Rams who have won four games and lost two games. The Arizona Cardinals are in third place with three wins and two losses. The San Francisco 49ers are in fourth place with three wins and three losses.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the best record in the NFC south with four wins and two losses. Following the Buccaneers in second place are the New Orleans Saints who have three wins and two lossed. The Carolina Panthers who have three wins and three losses are in third place. In fourth place are the Atlanta Falcons who have yet won only one game and have lost five games.
The NFC East has not been having the best season since the first-place team, the Dallas Cowboys, have a record of two wins and three losses. The Philadelphia Eagles are in second place with one win, four losses and one tie. The Washington Football Team and the New York Giants are in last place with one win and five losses.
In the NFC North, the Chicago Bears are leading the way with five wins and one loss. One game behind the Bears are the Green Bay Packers with four wins and one loss. The Detroit Lions are behind the Bears with two wins and three losses. The Minnesota Vikings round out the back of the NFC West with one win and fivelosses.
In the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans currently hold the first-place record with five wins and zero losses. Following the Titans are the Indianapolis Colts who have won four games and lost two games. Both the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars are in last place with one win and five losses.
The Buffalo Bills are leading the AFC East with a record of four wins and one loss. The Miami Dolphins are in second place with three wins and three losses. Following the Patriots are the New England Patriots who have won two games and lost three games. The New York Jets, who have won zero games, are in fourth place.
In the AFC West, the defending Super Bowl Champions Kansas City Chiefs are leading the division with a record four wins and one loss. Behind them, are the Los Vegas Raiders who have won three games and lost two games. The Denver Broncos are in third place with two wins and three losses. In fourth place is the Los Angeles Chargers with one win and four losses.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the top team in the AFC North with five wins and zero losses. The Baltimore Ravens are in second place with five wins and one loss. The Cleveland Browns are in third place with four wins and two losses. In last place in the AFC North is the Cincinnati Bengals who have won one game, lost four games and tied one game.
Looking forward to Week Seven and Beyond
The Seahawks, the Steelers and the Titans are the three undefeated teams left in the league. In Week Seven, they play each other. Only one will be able to emerge with a record that is still undefeated.
While the Chiefs have lost one game, they still have been playing very good football. If they do continue this, they will be a favorite to make it back to the Super Bowl again this year.
The NFC East needs to improve soon or else there will be no hope for any of these teams to do well in the postseason.
