Worst division in U.S sports



The NFC West is the worst division in major U.S. pro sports, and by a wide margin. The Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks and 49ers have won just 37.5% of their games against non-NFC West teams since the NFL’s current alignment launched in 2002, while getting outscored by an average of 5.4 points a game. All the NFC West teams have been outscored and outplayed by the rest of the league. Even the Seahawks, the lone team to win more than half its games since 2002, did so by beating up on divisional foes. Concentrating so much mediocrity in one division gives whichever NFC West team is least mediocre an edge over teams outside the division that don’t have the benefit of an easy divisional schedule. Seven NFC teams currently have better records than every team in the West, but at least two won’t make the playoffs because the West champ is guaranteed a berth.

Here are the best and worst divisions in the four major sports based on their teams’ regular-season record against teams outside their division since their league adopted its current divisional alignment.

League………………….Best (Win %)……………….Worst (Win %)
NFL………………………… AFC South (.581)……………..NFC West (.375)
MLB…………………………… AL West (.518)…………….AL Central (.478)
NBA………………………….Southwest (.590)…………….Atlantic (.439)
NHL…………………………. Northeast (.531)……………..Southeast (.430
