What Are the Current NFL Standings for Each Division?
The AFC East is one of the most intriguing divisions in the NFL. Sitting at the top, the Miami Dolphins. With a 5-1 record, the high-flying Dolphins currently lead the division over the Buffalo Bills. The Jets, even without Aaron Rodgers, have somehow managed to win three games while the Patriots are sitting in the basement with one victory.

The AFC South is one of the tighter NFL divisions. The Jaguars just got a big win to get to four wins, but QB Trevor Lawrence went down late with a knee injury. Meanwhile, Anthony Richardson might be out for the remainder of the season.
The Texans continue to surpass expectations thanks to an incredible rookie season by QB C.J. Stroud.
- Jacksonville Jaguars 4-2
- Indianapolis Colts 3-3
- Houston Texans 3-3
- Tennessee Titans 2-4
The AFC West is the same AFC West we’ve seen for a few years now. The Chiefs sit at the top, with the Chargers a few games behind.
Even though Kansas City has five wins, they haven’t looked all that great and have been bailed out a number of times. But, like the Chiefs tend to do, they’re probably saving their best football for the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are in the basement of the AFC West and seem to like it there. Russell Wilson, although statistically playing better than last year, continues to make mistakes that cost this team wins. Sean Payton has brought his own controversies, and Denver will likely need to start thinking about a complete rebuild at this point.
- Kansas City Chiefs 5-1
- Los Angeles Chargers 2-2
- Las Vegas Raiders 3-3
- Denver Broncos 1-5

The NFC North looks very different from years past, with the Detroit Lions with a commanding three-game lead.

The NFC South is interesting. The Buccaneers, Falcons, and Saints all have three wins on the season, and the Panthers remain winless.
Baker Mayfield has been a fun redemption story this year, while Atlanta and New Orleans have relied on explosive run games to see success. This division is likely going to come down to the wire.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-2
- Atlanta Falcons 3-3
- New Orleans Saints 3-3
