NFL Realignment


Recommended Posts

The NFL has a few alignment issues, which I know people can agree on. I know the NFL likes to keep rivalries in tact, but I think by realigning a few teams to make the division more regional could help teams with travel costs and such. Most of all, I would just like to see a consistent base.

In my changes, I made 3 in the AFC, and 2 in the NFC

I think the biggest change would be the Dallas Cowboys. Obviously they have huge rivalries within the NFC East, but being in the division makes absolutely no sense. The Houston Texans are in the NFC South, as should be the Cowboys. Both Texas teams need to be consistent. This same concept works with the Miami Dolphins. Tampa Bay is in the NFC South, but the Dolphins in the East? Yes, Miami is East, but definitely sits better South, in my eyes. Below you can see more changes. I believe that this makes the divisions regionally better.
