Buffalo Bills (4-2): One of the season's surprise teams, the Bills could get a wild card if they finish the season as strongly as they started it.
New York Jets (4-3): The Jets have plenty of problems, but it's never smart to count out Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez.
Cincinnati Bengals (4-2): Andy Dalton and AJ Green are developing a great rapport and the defense is stout, but they're probably still a year away in a tough division.
Tennessee Titans (3-3): Laid an egg at home against the Texans, but could bounce back against a team known for failing down the stretch.
Oakland Raiders (4-3): If Carson Palmer returns to form and learns the offense quickly, and if Darren McFadden doesn't miss time with an injury, they could still win the division. But those are two very big if's.
Kansas City Chiefs (3-3): This team has won three in a row, and if Matt Cassel starts playing a little better, they could still seize a wide open division.
Dallas Cowboys (3-3): One of the most talented teams in the league can't seem to be consistent. If they find a groove, they can still win the division.
Washington Redskins (3-3): They started fast, but they've looked more like they did last year as of late.
Philadelphia Eagles (2-4): A much-needed bye week could have helped this team solve some of its many problems. The talent must quickly translate into wins.
Chicago Bears (4-3): In a very tough division, but not out of it yet. A wildcard possibility is in sight if Detroit continues to lose.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-3): A very young and inconsistent team that should have a better shot at the playoffs in the next couple of years.
Atlanta Falcons (4-3): A preseason playoff favorite that has fallen behind, but pulled off an important win against the Lions today.
