After five weeks of NFL action, we are starting to figure out how the league has changed. For the first time ever, the 1972 Dolphins are celebrating after just over a month after the season started. If the season ended today we would have one team from the NFC that made the playoffs in 2009. That team is the Arizona Cardinals, who were expected to do nothing special as they lost Kurt Warner, Anquan Boldin, Karlos Dansby and Antrel Rolle. Not to mention this same team is starting undrafted rookie Max Hall at quarterback.
That leaves the question: who is the best team in the NFC?
Let's conduct a process of elimination.
