Best: AFC West

The AFC West is home to the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos. The Broncos made their way to the Super Bowl for the second time in a row in 2015 and this time managed to pull off the win. Credit must be given to the division home to the Super Bowl champions. Fans shall see if the Broncos can stay at the top of the heap now that Peyton Manning has retired.

On top of that, the AFC West is also home to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs, led by quarterback Alex Smith who carried the team to two playoff berths since he started with the team three years ago.

The Chiefs have made their comeback, and show no signs of slowing down. With Peyton Manning gone, it is likely that the Chiefs could take over as division leaders this year.

Worst: AFC South

The AFC South is arguably home to the two worst teams in the entire NFL, The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. Both of these teams had miserable records last season, which is nothing new. While the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North had the same record as these two teams, the Ravens are typically a better team while the Titans and the Jaguars and usually this bad. It has yet to be seen if their draft picks will do them any good in the upcoming season.

In the Middle: AFC North and AFC East

While the AFC East is home to the perpetually fantastic New England Patriots, the rest of the AFC East is average at best. The New York Jets had a 10-6 record this past season, but just missed the playoffs because of a tiebreaker. The AFC East by far isn’t a bad division, but it can’t beat the dominating power of the Broncos and the back on the rise Chiefs.

The AFC North is probably the most mixed bag of a division. It is home to the Cleveland Browns, one of the most dismal teams in the entire NFL, but it is also home to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals two teams that went to the playoffs last year. The Cincinnati Bengals are one of the most dominant teams in the AFC right now, it will be interesting to see if they can keep in that way in the upcoming season.
