Where did the past 16 weeks go?  For Kansas City Chiefs fans, you wished it was over by week 4.  If you are a Broncos fan, you wish the winning streak never ends.  The last week of the regular season is upon us and the Final Power Poll rankings have determined the NFL’s Strongest and Weakest Divisions.  It is a foregone conclusion that the AFC West is the new version of the old NFC West, but who will have the honor of being the NFL’s Top Division…..   AFC EAST New England – 4 New York Jets – 25 Buffalo – 24 Miami – 19 TOTAL = 72          Last Week = 68          Gain/Loss = -4   AFC NORTH Pittsburgh – 15 Baltimore – 10 Cincinnati – 8 Cleveland – 23 TOTAL = 56          Last Week = 63          Gain/Loss = +7   AFC SOUTH Houston – 7 Tennessee – 29 Jacksonville – 31 Indianapolis – 12 TOTAL = 79          Last Week = 68          Gain/Loss = -11   AFC WEST San Diego – 22 Kansas City – 32 Denver – 2 Oakland – 30 TOTAL = 86          Last Week = 90          Gain/Loss = +4     NFC EAST Philadelphia – 28 New York Giants – 16 Dallas – 14 Washington – 9 TOTAL = 67          Last Week = 57          Gain/Loss = -10   NFC NORTH Green Bay – 6 Chicago – 11 Detroit – 27 Minnesota – 13 TOTAL = 54          Last Week = 63          Gain/Loss = +9   NFC SOUTH Atlanta – 1 New Orleans – 17 Tampa Bay – 21 Carolina – 20 TOTAL = 59          Last Week – 63          Gain/Loss = +4   NFC WEST San Francisco – 6 Arizona – 26 Seattle – 5 St. Louis – 18 TOTAL = 55          Last Week = 56          Gain/Loss = +1   There you have it for the final regular season divisional rankings from the 13 “experts” at NFL.com.  The best division in the NFL is the NFC North who edged out the NFC West and the AFC North.  The worst division in the NFL as it was for most of the season is the AFC West thanks to down years for the Chargers, Chiefs and Raiders.  As an added bonus I will put the teams best and worst rankings they achieved throughout the year under this paragraph for posterity sake.   ATLANTA—–Best Rank 1st in Week 7—–Worst Rank 5th in Week 16 ARIZONA—–Best Rank 5th in Week 5—–Worst Rank 30th in Week 15 BALTIMORE—–Best Rank 3rd in Week 7—–Worst Rank 10th in Week 17 BUFFALO—–Best Rank 19th in Week 4—–Worst Rank 28th in Week 9 CAROLINA—–Best Rank 18th in Week 3—–Worst Rank 30th in Week 9 CHICAGO—–Best Rank 3rd in Week 8—–Worst Rank 16th in Week 16 CINCINNATI—–Best Rank 8th in Week 17—–Worst Rank 21st in Week 10 CLEVELAND—–Best Rank 21st in Week 15—–Worst Rank 32nd in Week 4 DALLAS—–Best Rank 11th in Week 16—–Worst Rank 18th in Week 13 DENVER—–Best Rank 2nd in Week 17—–Worst Rank 14th in Week 6 DETROIT—–Best Rank 13th in Week 3—–Worst Rank 27th in Week 16 GREEN BAY—–Best Rank 3rd in Week 11—–Worst Rank 9th in Week 13 HOUSTON—–Best Rank 1st in Week 4—–Worst Rank 7th in Week 17 INDIANAPOLIS—–Best Rank 11th in Week 15—–Worst Rank 31st in Week 4 JACKSONVILLE—–Best Rank 29th in Week 15—–Worst Rank 32nd in Week 3 KANSAS CITY—–Best Rank 24th in Week 4—–Worst Rank 32nd in Week 7 MIAMI—–Best Rank 13th in Week 9—–Worst Rank 29th in Week 4 MINNESOTA—–Best Rank 10th in Week 8—–Worst Rank 27th in Week 3 NEW ENGLAND—–Best Rank 1st in Week 15—–Worst Rank 9th in Week 8 NEW ORLEANS—–Best Rank 13th in Week 12—–Worst Rank 26th in Week 4 NEW YORK GIANTS—–Best Rank 2nd in Week 7—–Worst Rank 16th in Week 17 NEW YORK JETS—–Best Rank 17th in Week 4—–Worst Rank 29th in Week 13 OAKLAND—–Best Rank 26th in Week 9—–Worst Rank 32nd in Week 15 PHILADELPHIA—–Best Rank 5th in Week 3—–Worst Rank 29th in Week 14 PITTSBURGH—–Best Rank 9th in Week 3—–Worst Rank 15th in Week 16 ST.
