While the NFC currently holds the NFL’s crown with the Los Angeles Rams being Super Bowl champs, the AFC is out for blood heading into the 2022 campaign based on the moves that have been made around the league this offseason.
The 2022 NFL offseason has been off its rocker with franchise-altering trades having taken place. With there being so many moving pieces over the last couple of weeks it’s easy to overlook which conference all of the top players are being traded to and signing with their respective new teams.
Well, it turns out the AFC has gotten much stronger this offseason seeing as how every major move has benefitted a team in the conference. Either big-time players are being traded from the NFC to the AFC, or AFC teams are making moves among themselves.
The lone eye-catching move where an NFC team has (arguably) gotten better? Carson went to the Washington Commanders.
Power shift: Every single big trade this offseason has involved the top player moving from an AFC team to another AFC team or from an NFC team to an AFC team.
The only trade involving a player going from AFC to NFC is Carson Wentz going from Indy to Washington. pic.twitter.com/FaiCqKWn3i
