When the NFL added two divisions — and weakened the AFC West

By Mike Wilkening

Thirteen years ago Thursday, NFL owners unanimously approved multiple changes to the league’s divisional structure, a move made logical with the addition of a 32nd team — the Houston Texans — on tap for 2002.

Oddsmaker: Broncos, Patriots, Packers among heaviest divisional favorites

By Mike Wilkening

The Denver Broncos have won their division in each of the last three years, and if it seems like they are heavy favorites to win the AFC West for a fourth-straight year, one well-known Las Vegas sports book agrees with that sentiment. The LVH Las Vegas Hotel and Casino’s SuperBook has […]
