NFC West

49ers (13-3), Seahawks (12-4), Rams (9-7), Cardinals (5-11)

This division is going to be the most fun to watch. You have two Super Bowl contenders here when you look at the 49ers and Seahawks. Both have very good defenses and that read option with Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson respectively.

The 49ers defense is stacked, with names like Aldon Smith, Justin Smith, Patrick Willis, and Eric Reid. The Seahawks have arguable the best secondary in the league with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Plus, there is always the 12th man. That stadium alone can make that defense great. Then you have the Rams. They are knocking on the door. Sam Bradford has weapons this year.

They drafted WVU stars Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. That defense is still pretty solid with guys like Janoris Jenkins and Cortland Finnegan.

Division Winners:
1. 49ers
2. Packers
3. Cowboys
4. Saints

5. Seahawks
6. Falcons
