Are the Super Bowl champions playing a soft schedule so far?

Five weeks into the NFL 2012 regular season, it's not too early to determine which teams are benefiting the most from a soft schedule. 

While it was generally perceived that the NFC West was the worst division two years ago, it may be surprising to know that it has the best winning percentage (14-6) this season. 

It is followed by the NFC North (11-8), NFC East (10-9), AFC North and AFC South (both are 9-10), AFC East (9-11) and NFC South (8-11).

Bringing up the rear is the AFC West (7-12). That division was .500 in 2011, but based on early returns, that looks less likely for 2012. 

Here are the 13 teams that have faced opponents with a combined record below .500.
