NFC Down, Not Out


It's easy to pin the AFC as the dominant conference. The AFC has won 7 of the 10 Super Bowls this decade, with the conference sporting the three most dominant quarterbacks in the league (Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger), who have represented the AFC in the Super Bowl the last seven of eight years (including six straight) winning six Super Bowls.

But does the NFC have a chance? Of course they do! The last six Super Bowls have been decided by a total of 36 points (6 points average difference). When it comes down to it, the better team is going to win the Super Bowl.

Also the NFC is sporting some good quarterbacks in their own right. The NFC's contenders include an array of elite quarterbacks (Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Eli Manning, Donovan McNabb), as well as a number of quarterbacks on the brink of stardom (Matt Ryan, Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers).

Don't fret, the NFC is in good hands.
