The NFC West has become the toughest division in football, just a few years after being the laughing stock of the league. The Arizona Cardinals have been one of the best teams in the NFL this season under first year head coach Bruce Arians, a Coach of the Year candidate. Before the NFL expanded to four divisions and the Cardinals played in St. Louis, Arizona played in the NFC East. Too bad they still don’t play there because they would have already locked up a division title. The Cardinals are a very solid football team and could make some noise if they reach the playoffs depending on what happens this afternoon.
At the end of the day, the final standings will be known as will the schedule for the 2014 season. The teams in the NFC West will be facing all of the teams from the NFC East and the NFC West. At-large games will be played at home against the NFC North and road games will be played against the NFC South. Dates and times will be determined later this spring by the NFL league office.
