NFC West deserves 'some' respect

The headline is a play on the post-Week 1 item about the division deserving no respect.

I'm upgrading "no" to "some" after Bill Simmons' favorite division posted a 3-1 record in Week 3.

NFC West teams do not have a winning record against any other division since the beginning of last season, but a few more victories against the AFC West and NFC East could change that.

The chart shows how each NFC West team has fared against teams from its own and other divisions since the 2009 opener.
