People keep talking about how the AFC East is the weakest conference in the NFL because the Patriots have been flat out the best team in the NFL over the last 16 years, but the division is a lot stronger than people think. Look at last season - New England went 9-1 outside of the division. Miami went 6-4 outside of the division. Buffalo, which had a losing record, went 6-4 outside of the division. New York went 3-7 outside of the division. The AFC North was flat out awful last year. Cleveland went 1-9 outside of the division. Cincinnati went 3-6-1 outside of the division. Baltimore went 4-6 outside of the division. Pittsburgh went 6-4 outside of the division. Look at the AFC South. Houston went 4-6 outside of the division. The Colts went 5-5 outside of the division. The Titans went 7-3 outside the division. The Jaguars went 1-9 outside of the division.

Here is a summary of AFC conference's record outside of the division:

AFC West 26-14
AFC East 24-16
AFC South 17-23
AFC North 14-25-1

Even if New England went 6-4, or even 5-5 instead of 9-1 the AFC East still would have performed better than the AFC North and AFC South outside of the division.
Nice post TAM88.

It is a good post but homer that I am, issues with NFC North being last! The NFC South has come on strong lately, but not consistently. Carolina won the division 7-8-1 in 2014, Saints were 7-9. The NFC North has had 2 teams in the playoffs 6 of the last 7 seasons.
