Hey APC! I just wanted to share some information. This is up-to-date as for 12/4 with the conclusion of the Redskins win over the Giants. I usually keep track of the standings on my own because I like to normalize the strength of a division by how they fare against their opponents outside of the division. Essentially, I am subtracting out the wins/losses against divisional opponents because they result in a win AND a loss in the standings.
Assuming everything is entered correctly:
As you can see, the AFC North fares the best outside of their division followed by the NFC North. The AFC West and the NFC East are the bottom feeders.
Now for the fun part! This is going to be very link intensive, but will be your go-to source of playoff information in the coming weeks. I may update this post, but should be a good start for everyone to look at.

Enjoy the links! Should be fun to see some of the results you folks come up with so feel free to share them!
