Call it parity or mediocrity, but it was hard to find great divisional races. The average margin of victory for an AFC divisional winner was four games last season. NFC races were tighter, but that was because only one team -- the Bears -- won more than 10 games. Once again, the AFC's domination over the NFC took hold in 2006, and it played a major part in skewing the balance of power. After a 2005 season in which the NFC came within six games of playing even with the AFC, the NFC dropped to a dismal 24-40 record against the AFC. _________________________________________________________________________________ I have to agree with most, can't wait for this season to get started.
