Best division in football isn't the AFC North

Otto Greule Jr

And we're not sure that we agree with that.

The AFC North is one of the best divisions in football. Some (mostly fans in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Cleveland), will argue that the AFC North is the best division, boasting significant postseason experience.

CBSSports.com ranked the best divisions in the NFL. The NFC West took home that honor. Ranked second is the AFC North.

Not only does the AFC North boast the defending Super Bowl champion, but it's the only division that's sent multiple teams to the playoffs in each of the past five seasons and won multiple Super Bowls in that same time period. If the Cleveland Browns do something called 'competing' this year, the AFC North could make a case for No. 1 by season's end.

One could argue that while the NFC West have two elite teams in San Francisco and Seattle, the AFC North have experienced Super Bowl champions and three teams that have reached the postseason multiple times since 2009. Additionally the AFC North made up half of the AFC's playoff teams in 2011.
