Parity is definitely the theme of the 2010 NFL season. According to the NFL, through the first five weeks, seven of the eight divisions have at least one new team either in first place or tied for the top spot.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are near the top of the NFC South with a 3-1 record after a 0-7 start last season. The same goes for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are in first place in the AFC West after starting 0-5 in 2009.
Here is an interesting note. If the Bucs and Chiefs can win this weekend, it would be the first time in NFL history the league would have two 4-1 teams that started at least 0-5 the previous season.
Interesting note No. 2. The Bucs and St. Louis Rams have already matched or surpassed their win totals from 2009. The Washington Redskins, the Detroit Lions, and the Chiefs can accomplish that feat this weekend with victories.
As you can see, the age old saying, “Anybody can win on any given Sunday” still holds true.
