This is close, and if they get home-field advantage in the playoffs, I think they could win the whole thing. A month ago I might have said the Eagles, but injuries will hurt that team. As of right now, I don't think the Seahawks are the best team, but I don't think they're very far off. Also, just because I don't think they're the best doesn't mean they can't be the NFC champions.

They are the popular choice to be better and they made some nice pickups and are playing well, but they aren't the best yet. They are a good young team with a solid defense and they could represent the NFC one day, but it won't be this season. The Eagles are my pick in the NFC.
