West putting home records to the test
By Mike Sando
NFC West teams are 10-0 at home this season.
Arizona and San Francisco own two of the NFL's longest regular-season home winning streaks. Those streaks will be on the line in Week 6, as the chart from ESPN Stats & Information shows.
Thanks to Facebook friend M.W. for posting division-by-division home records on my wall Wednesday. The link is visible only to friends, but ...
ESPN's division-by-division standings show the NFC West going 4-0 against the AFC East, 3-0 against the NFC East, 3-3 against the NFC North and 1-0 against the NFC South regardless of venue.
This week will put those records to the test.
St. Louis faces a potentially tough matchup on the road against Miami. Seattle has a difficult home game against New England. San Francisco is home against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Arizona has to like its chances at home against reeling Buffalo, but the Cardinals face enough questions on the injury front to invite at least some pause.
