The NFC West has been a two-team race the last few seasons between two of the best teams in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers have gone to three-straight NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl, while Seattle has been in the playoffs three of the last four seasons and last year's ride ended with a Super Bowl title in a romp over Denver.
The Oddsmakers are giving the Seahawks the slight edge to win the division again this season over their bitter rivals, but nobody is paying any attention to an Arizona team that won 10 games last season. Even St. Louis has shown better consistency over the past two seasons with back-to-back 7-9 campaigns.
The chances that the Cardinals or the Rams upset the applecart this season with a stunning run to the NFC West title are slim at best, but this division is going to far more closer than expected with all four teams staying in the title race heading into the final few weeks of the season.
