What Are the Current NFL Standings for Each Division?

AFC East

The AFC East had one of the more surprising games of this young season in Week 7 when the New England Patriots defeated the Buffalo Bills. The Bills now remain one game behind the Dolphins for the top spot in the division, but Miami still has to play their game on Sunday Night Football.

  • Miami Dolphins 5-1
  • Buffalo Bills 4-4
  • New York Jets 3-3
  • New England Patriots 2-5

AFC North

The AFC North is one of the tightest in the NFL. The leaders of the clubhouse right now are the Ravens with five wins. The Browns are one game behind. And although they are close to each other with their records, the Ravens clearly look like they are in a class of their own right now.

  • Baltimore Ravens 5-2
  • Cleveland Browns 4-2
  • Pittsburgh Steelers 3-2
  • Cincinnati Bengals 3-3

AFC South

With the Colts losing Anthony Richardson for the rest of the season, the AFC South might be locked up at this point. The Jaguars currently have five wins, putting them up two or three over everyone else.

The darkhorse team in this division? The Texans at 3-3. C.J. Stroud has looked amazing and is leading a young Texans team to compete each week.

  • Jacksonville Jaguars 5-2
  • Houston Texans 3-3
  • Indianapolis Colts 3-4
  • Tennessee Titans 2-4

AFC West

The AFC West is the same AFC West we’ve seen for a few years now — Chiefs at the top, with the Raiders and Chargers in the mix. The Broncos, meanwhile, remain one of the worst teams in the NFL.

  • Kansas City Chiefs 5-1
  • Las Vegas Raiders 3-4
  • Los Angeles Chargers 2-3
  • Denver Broncos 1-5

NFC East

The NFC East is another division that is close. The Eagles lead, with the Cowboys trying to keep pace. The Commanders and Giants played each other in Week 7, with New York getting their second win of the season.

  • Philadelphia Eagles 5-1
  • Dallas Cowboys 4-2
  • Washington Commanders 3-4
  • New York Giants 2-5

NFC North

The NFC North looks very different from years past, with the Detroit Lions holding a commanding three-game lead. However, they suffered a massive loss to the Ravens in Week 7, 38-6.

  • Detroit Lions 5-2
  • Green Bay Packers 2-3
  • Minnesota Vikings 2-4
  • Chicago Bears 2-5

NFC South

The NFC South is interesting. The Falcons and Buccaneers faced off in Week 7, with Atlanta coming away with the win. That now makes the division leaders, but are only up one over Tampa Bay and New Orleans.

  • Atlanta Falcons 4-3
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3
  • New Orleans Saints 3-4
  • Carolina Panthers 0-6

NFC West

The 49ers finally met their match. All it took was a ton of injuries, ridiculous penalties, and a missed field goal.

They still hold a commanding two-game lead in the division, but the Rams and Seahawks are not too far behind. Can they use a 49ers trip up to make the NFC West a bit more competitive?

  • San Francisco 49ers 5-1
  • Seattle Seahawks 3-2
  • Los Angeles Rams 3-3
  • Arizona Cardinals 1-5
