One fan base is asking what happened, the other is asking what's going to happen. Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers continue asking themselves 'what's wrong with us' after failing to win the division last year and clearly struggling in 2011 as well. The fumble in week 9, and a career-high 3 interceptions (two returned for GB Touchdowns) had Rivers shaking his head in disgust, and all but sealed a 14th straight victory for the Packers going back to last year. Aaron Rodgers, on the other hand, is on the path to having one of, if not the, best season for a QB in NFL history. The Packers are 8-0, have the best player in the league, and still don't think their playing up to their potential. The defending Super Bowl Champions are proving to the rest of the league they were worthy of the Lombardi Trophy last year, and are daring any other team to try to take it away from them.
Almost equally as exciting, we have the 7-1 San Francisco 49ers and rookie coach Jim Harbaugh already close to locking up their first division title since 2002. The Niners look like the only real threat to the Packers in the NFC, and are bringing back the thrill that is San Francisco football.
1. Green Bay Packers (8-0) -- Forget just the Super Bowl, could this team be the first to go 19-0. The '72 Dolphins may be putting the champagne away for a while but first the Pack needs to get past Detroit in weeks 11 and 17.
2. San Francisco 49ers (7-1) -- Jim Harbaugh has shown Stanford wasn't just dumb luck and that some college coaches can be successful in the NFL.
3. Baltimore Ravens (6-2) -- Two wins against their bitter rivals in Pittsburgh have the Ravens walking on cloud 9, but they still have to get the job done and wrap up the Divisional Title to take the kings' seat in the AFC North.
