Further reflection on which teams have established momentum as of week 8.

In the AFC, only 9 teams have winning records in their last 5 games.

The Steelers are the only team in the AFC that are 5-0 in their last 5 games.

The Texans and Chargers are each 4-1 in their last 5 games and both have a 2 game winning streak.

The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 games and have a 1 game winning streak.

The Patriots are 4-1 in their last 5 games and each won their last game, but lost their last game.

The Chiefs, Ravens, Colts and Broncos are the only other teams in the AFC with winning records in their last 5 game, going 3-2. Of this group, the Chiefs were the only team that won their last game.

Will the 6 AFC playoff teams come from this group of 9 teams?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Division Games

In the NFC, only 6 teams have winning records in their last 5 games.

The Eagles are the only team in the NFC that are 5-0 in their last 5 games.

The Giants and Vikings are each 4-1 in their last 5 games.

The Packers, Falcons and Rams are the only other teams in the NFC with winning records in their last 5 game, going 3-2.

Will the 6 NFC playoff teams come from this group of 6 teams?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Division Games

East . . Eagles . . . . . . . . . . (1-0)
North . Vikings . . . . . . . . . . (1-0)
South. Falcons . . . . . . . . . . (1-0)
West . Rams. . . . . . . . . . . . (1-0)

Wildcard Giants. . . . . . . . . . (2-1)
. . . . . . .- Packers . . . . . . . . . (1-1)

While it is, of course, way too early to say these teams will be the playoff contenders, they at least have established a little momentum at this point of the season.
