    Adam Schefter mentioned this the other day, and I thought it was interesting.

    The last 7 NFC champions all played the AFC East during the regular season.

    The Packers won't play the AFC East until 2014.

    It follows a pattern:

    2006: NFC North (Chicago Bears) -- played the AFC East.
    2007: NFC East (New York Giants) -- played the AFC East.
    2008: NFC West (Arizona Cardinals) -- played the AFC East.
    2009: NFC South (New Orleans Saints -- played the AFC East.

    And the pattern repeats itself:

    2010: NFC North (Green Bay Packers) -- played the AFC East.
    2011: NFC East (New York Giants) -- played the AFC East.
    2012: NFC West (San Francisco 49ers) -- played the AFC East.


    2013: NFC South plays the AFC East
    2014: NFC North plays the AFC East

    And since the Colts beat the Bears, every SB winner played the NFC East during the regular season. It would be longer if the SeaHags hadn't gotten jobbed by the refs in their SB.
    Bank on the Ravens this year in that case.

    What about all the NFC teams that played the AFC East and didn't make the super bowl the past 7 years?
