Which Division Is The Best In The NFL?

We're doing some halfway point stuff around SB Nation about the playoff picture, midseason MVP, rookie of the year, etc and this question came up: which division is the best in football?

I broke it down into a couple categories:

Contenders: AFC East, AFC North, NFC North and NFC South.

Everyone else: AFC South, AFC West, NFC East and NFC West.

I think I'm going with the AFC North as the best division in football. From top to bottom, I think this is the best division in football. Even the Cleveland Browns in last place are a 3-4 team that's not an easy out. The Steelers and Ravens are both top 7 or 8 teams while the Bengals are surprising everyone with a whopping 5-2 record. Three playoff teams from the AFC North? Unlikely but not unheard of.

Who ya got as the best division in football?
