Well,we're now 10 weeks into this season for the NFL.
Playoff time is approaching,and I thought it would be a good time to start a thread about it.
Here is a list of the current division leaders,beginning with the AFC.

AFC
East : NY Jets at 7-3
North : Pittsburgh Steelers at 7-3
South : Tennessee Titans at 10-0
West : Denver Broncos at 6-4

NFC
East : NY Giants at 9-1
North : Green Bay Packers at 5-5
South : Carolina Panthers at 8-2
West : Arizona Cardinals at 7-3

It has been a roller coaster ride for alot of teams already for this season indeed.
There are plenty of teams still in the chase for a playoff spot at this time.
I just wonder how the standings will look after 6 more games.

Steve

Just heard on the radio that McNabb was not benched in the second half yesterday... when asked by reporters why he didn't play, he said he was unaware there were two halves in a game. /steve

The Titans are the first team in,with their win over the Browns today.
That win also gave them their first division title since 2002.

Thought I would go back and revisit the OP and update the standings.

AFC
East : The Jets,Patriots and Dolphins all stand at 8-5
North : Pittsburgh Steelers 10-3
South: z-Tennessee Titans 12-1
West : Denver Broncos 8-5

NFC
East : z-NY Giants 11-2
North : Minnesota Vikings 8-5
South : Carolina Panthers 10-3
West : z-Arizona Cardinals 8-5

NOTE: z = Division winners
EDIT at 10:44PM CT to update NFC South standings.

Aside from the obvious already-locked-out teams, there are still so many scenarios possible and so many teams left alive that I've vowed not to try and think about it all until next week, hoping the weekend clears some of it up.

Carolina is basically in no matter what at this point, because I think they would have to lose out and several teams win out... I'm watching for Indy tonight to see if they can clinch a playoff spot. Beyond that, most of the big teams I care about are in... and at least one scenario will not play out until the Jets/Dolphins play the final week.
