Here are some division tidbits at the regular season’s end:
Against the NFC East:
San Diego: 4-0.
Kansas City: 1-3.
The AFC West did improve in 2009 from 2008. The four teams combined for 30 wins. Last season, the four teams had a total of 23 victories.
San Diego (a five-game improvement) and Kansas City (a two-game improvement) had better seasons while Denver and Oakland matched their 2008 win totals. So, there was no regression in the division.
