Separation in the AFC, a jumble in the NFC. Cheap Chelsea FC Jerseys .Closing in on December, fans can expect New England to grab a bye in the AFC, as well as whoever emerges from the NFLs best division, the AFC West. Two wild cards out of the West wouldnt be a surprise either, while the North is a two-team crawl and the South likely belongs to Houston if it can find a way to win a road game.The NFC has powerhouses in Dallas and Seattle, and, well, who knows?No team in the North is particularly inspiring, and Atlanta keeps coming back to the field in the South. The East is intriguing with no teams under .500, and there remain five head-to-head matchups among the Cowboys, Redskins, Giants and Eagles.Maybe the surest bet in the entire league is that the Browns and 49ers will bumble it out for the top overall draft pick. Imagine opening with a win and then losing 15 straight -- and not getting the first selection next spring. Could happen to San Francisco.A look at the division races with Thanksgiving behind us.AFC EASTThe only unexpected item here might be that the Patriots (8-2) havent clinched yet. They went 3-1 without the suspended Tom Brady, and hes come back with a vengeance, among the league leaders in passing. But New England has shown some vulnerability on defense -- not that Miami (6-4), Buffalo (5-5) nor the Jets (3-7) have shown a penchant for doing much with the ball.The Dolphins, riding a five-game winning streak, are in the wild-card mix, with their only opponent that currently owns a winning mark being the Patriots in the finale.AFC NORTHA two-team slog between banged-up Pittsburgh and inconsistent Baltimore. As long as the Steelers have their offense on track, they are dangerous. And the Ravens, who beat Pittsburgh earlier, have a solid defense.This one could come down to Christmas Day in the Steel City, though Baltimore must navigate successive matchups with the Dolphins, Patriots and Eagles before then.AFC SOUTHNo one outside of Houston seems to want to believe in the Texans, yet they have a relatively simple path to the division crown. They have no one on the upcoming schedule that currently has a winning record, and have three of their final four contests within this weak sector.Tennessee might be the team of the future in this division, but seems too fragile to steal the AFC South title this year.AFC WESTThe leagues best group -- yeah, we know that everyone in the NFC East is at or above .500.Oakland (8-2), for the first time since it went to the Super Bowl in 2002, seems headed for a winning record. Who knows, the Raiders could challenge the Patriots for home-field advantage throughout the AFC postseason.But they need to get stingier on defense, and they have to navigate games at all three division rivals.That not only makes for an intriguing December in the AFC West, but perhaps a wild scramble with the defending NFL champion Broncos (7-3) and the usually study but currently injury-prone Chiefs (7-3).And dont discount San Diego (4-6) playing a spoiler role.NFC EASTHow `bout them Cowboys? At 10-1, with a dynamic offense led by rookie stars Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott and the leagues best line, they seem destined to win this highly competitive division. The stumbling block could be the Giants (7-3), whose five-game winning string pales compared to Dallas 10-gamer. Of course, that opening loss for the Cowboys was at home to the Giants.New York will need someone else to knock off Dallas, a major challenge right now, and also must beat the Cowboys in prime time on Dec. 11.Washington (6-4-1) and Philadelphia (5-5) would be in the mix anywhere else in the NFC and might finish on the outside despite being better than some playoff qualifiers.NFC NORTHGreen Bays collapse, due to injuries, poor blocking and some strange coaching decisions, opened the path for Detroit (7-4) and Minnesota (6-5). The Lions big win on Thanksgiving -- yet another comeback success -- gave them a sweep of the Vikings, and a clear path to their first division crown since 1993.The Packers (4-6) have dropped four in a row and dont look capable of any sort of surge.NFC SOUTHThe Falcons (6-4) got off to their second straight fast start. They faded badly to 8-8 in 2015 and they havent looked great in dropping three of their last five. They sure can score -- a league-high 320 points -- and are well coached. But their defense, like Oaklands, needs shoring up.Carolinas plummet to 4-6 has been almost shocking, leaving Tampa Bay (5-5) as the closest challenger. Similar to the Titans, the Bucs need more nurturing, but are getting closer to true contention.New Orleans (4-6) plays lots of tight games, usually losing them. As long as Drew Brees is around, the Saints will scare opponents, though their defense never does.NFC WESTSeattle (7-2-1) has a habit of coming on as the mercury decreases, and seems to be doing so again despite a long line at the infirmary. Russell Wilson has the look of an MVP candidate, and the Seahawks passing offense is formidable. They need to find a running game, and Thomas Rawls return to health is essential.That defense is as physical as they come and will keep Seattle in every game.The rest of the West is hard to look at, especially the Cardinals (4-5-1), a club many called the most talented in the NFL back in September. All that talent has wilted in the desert this season.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cheap FC Borussia Dortmund Jerseys .

Wieters had asked for $8.75 million and the Orioles had offered $6.LONDON -- For almost 27 years, Old Trafford has witnessed Alex Ferguson venting his anger from the dugout, berating officials, anxiously checking his watch and making celebratory jigs down the touchline. On Sunday, 76,000 fans have one final chance to witness -- and savour -- the most successful manager in British football history taking charge of Manchester United on home soil. With the title wrapped up, the Swansea match is effectively meaningless, but the United players will want to give their retiring manager a suitable send-off from Old Trafford. And for the 13th and final time, the Premier League trophy will be presented to the 71-year-old Ferguson now that black, red and white ribbons have replaced the blue and white of Manchester City. "It could be a bit emotional with it being his last game at Old Trafford and all the kids and everything there," Fergusons son, Darren, said in a video interview with the magazine Twentyfour7 Football. "No one will ever replace him -- it should be a good day for the family on Sunday but hes ready to go." Ferguson is yet to explain why he has decided to bring an end to a United career that has yielded almost 50 trophies since 1986. But former England coach Fabio Capello offered an insight on Friday following a phone call with Ferguson. "A few months ago he told me that he was going to stay on," Capello told broadcaster Sky Italia. "The news of his retirement really surprised me. I called him and he told me that he decided this way because of excess stress. ... He told me that now hell go and travel a bit, have fun and see the world with his wife." Darren Ferguson, however, rejected the theory his dad retired because of health issues. "Theres nothing wrong with his health, contrary to what some people are saying," said Darren, manager of Peterborough United. Cheap Mexico Jerseys. "Hes got to have a small hip operation but its no different to most 70-year-olds ... he feels like hes going out at the right time, hes left the club in a fantastic position, very healthy." It was his wife Cathy who persuaded Ferguson to reverse previous retirement plans for the end of the 2001-02 season, ensuring he went on to establish himself as the most successful manager Britain has produced. That Ferguson is leaving on his own terms from Old Trafford would have seemed unthinkable during his early days with United when it took him four years to win his first trophy -- the FA Cup -- and another three to land the Premier League. "He was the greatest coach of all time, especially because of all the difficulties he overcame at the start of his career with Manchester and for remaining for so many years on the same bench," Capello said. "Its really incredible. I normally think that after four-five years at the most a coach should move, so to think that he stayed on the same bench for 26 years is incredible. "That takes psychological, technical and humane capacity. I had a special relationship with him." Ferguson is being replaced by a manager in his own mould -- fellow Glasgow native David Moyes, who is leaving Everton after 11 years at the end of the season. "I dont think anybody thought the day would come when Sir Alex Ferguson retired," Moyes said. "We all thought he was superhuman. He is an example to anyone in their 70s. "The respect for him within the game is beyond any words I can use." cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseyscheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
