NFC West Teams Feasting On AFC South

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Nov 25, 2013

Entering the 2013 regular season, the NFC West was believed to be the best division in football.

As former Arizona Cardinals coach Denny Green once said, "they are who we thought they were".

Based solely on record, NFC West teams have a combined 28-15 record, with San Francisco capping off the Week 12 slate against Washington Monday night. For reference, the AFC West stands at 27-17.

One thing to keep in mind with the NFC West teams: they've feasted on the feeble AFC South, the worst division in football with a combined record of 16-28.

In 15 games, the NFC West is 12-3 vs the AFC South, having outscored AFC South teams by a combined score of 455-259.

That's an average score of 30-17 per game.

Here's how each NFC West team has fared against their AFC South adversaries. We look into this because Arizona just dismantled the Colts 40-11.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians must have had a great scouting report on the Colts.
