AFC Week 2: Hottest Teams in North and West
Jets, Bengals, Browns, and Chargers Still Winless
It’s time for our 2017 Week Two AFC Review. What has become obvious is that a majority of the teams in the North and West have gotten off to great starts. Of the eight teams in those two divisions, five are 2-0. However, of the five teams in the AFC that have gone 0-2, three are in the North and West. The fact is for the franchises in those two divisions, the first two weeks come down to being either feast of famine. When 1t comes to the East and South a majority of those team, five of eight, are 1-1. Two teams are 0-2 and the other club, Miami, is 1-0, having played just one game due to the hurricane.
