Their sole loss of the season is to the AFC's defending champion New England Patriots, though. A number of fans might love to see a rematch, which could happen in the AFC Playoffs.

Holding the No. 2 seed at the moment are the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have really turned it up lately. They started the season off a bit sluggish but have since turned the corner, even with the Le'Veon Bell drama surrounding the team.

1 seed Los Angeles Rams have one loss and it's to the No. 2 seed. That No. 2 seed, New Orleans, also has just one loss and has played one less game than LA, so they have time to take over still.

What makes the NFC picture especially interesting is the number of teams with three losses that are fighting within the No. 3 to No. 6 spots. Right now, the Chicago Bears have impressively won yet again, taking the No.

3 seed for the NFC. However, they've got fellow playoff contenders Minnesota and Green Bay still on the schedule.
