Further reflection on which teams have established momentum as of week 9.

In the AFC, only 8 teams have winning records in their last 6 games.

The Steelers are the only team in the AFC that are 6-0 in their last 6 games.

The Patriots, and Chargers are each 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Texans, Colts, Jets and Ravens are 4-2 in their last 6 games.

Will the 6 AFC playoff teams come from this group of 8 teams?

In the NFC, only 4 teams have winning records in their last 6 games.

The Eagles are the only team in the NFC that are 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Giants, Falcons and Vikings are each 4-2 in their last 6 games.

The Seahawks, Bucs, Packers, and Rams are the only other teams in the NFC with non-losing records in their last 6 game, going 3-3.

Will the 6 NFC playoff teams come from this group of 8 teams?

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.
