poppickle on 2009-11-03As we get to the midpoint of the NFL season the contenders start to separate themselves from the pretenders. Heading into week nine the Indianapolis Colts remain as the lone unbeaten team in the AFC with the Broncos holding tight with just one loss. The Bengals and Steelers sit atop the AFC North at 5-2 with the Bengals holding the head-to-head tie-breaker beating the Steelers a few weeks ago. The Patriots sit comfortably atop the AFC East and as long as Belichick and Brady are around they should never be taken lightly. So, the question remains who are the contenders and who are the pretenders in the AFC right now.
