If you have followed the NFL for any duration of time, you know the way they broke up all 32 teams. Four divisions per conference, four teams per division. Simple math, but the one thing which always got me was how some of the teams don’t seem to be in the right division.
For instance, why are the New England Patriots not in the AFC North? Instead, they are in the AFC East. Thinking about this I thought it would be fun to look at the divisions and see what they would look like if they were to re-align, but by geographical location.
Just to clarify, I decided not to move any teams from their current conference, just looking at divisional alignment. Every division has at least one new team in it except for the NFC West considering all four of those teams are predominantly on the western portion of the country compared to the other teams who could be moved.
Let’s see how this shakes out...
New England Patriots
New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
Los Angeles Chargers
Green Bay Packers
New York Giants
New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Division would remain the same with almost all teams geographically in the west.
So, what do you think of these re-aligned divisions? Would you be on board? Are there other changes you would make? Let us know in the comment section below!
