So much for parity in the NFL

You always hear a lot about parity in the National Football League, but look at the FACTS:

In the AFC, New England leads the East by FOUR games, Cincinnati leads the North by THREE games, and Denver leads the West by THREE GAMES. Except for the woeful South, there is near-total domination by one team.

In the NFC, Carolina leads the South by THREE games, and Arizona leads the West by THREE games. If there was parity among the teams, would there be so many runaway division leaders?

Wait see by the end of the season. I see these gaps getting closer in most of the divisions, with one exception, AFC East. New England has owned the East for past 15 years.

... but even if some of the races tighten up, it will be difficult to overtake the front-runners, in part because those leaders have already established a big edge in the tie-breakers.
