Believe it or not, there are more teams in the NFL than just the Patriots and the Broncos.

Yes, we were shocked to find this out too.

But there's no doubt that the Pats and Broncos have made the most noise in the AFC so far.

Lou Merloni, Bob Neumeier, and Dan Shaughnessy discussed the two-team race that is New England and Denver, and if the Broncos are still the team to beat.

"Well, I think, yes, until [the Patriots] beat them in the AFC championship you have to say that," Shaughnessy said. "But we can't argue with this, we've waited all these years for them to be proactive and aggressive in the offseason. This is reminiscent of 2006-07 when they lose 38-34 in the AFC Championship, they load up Adalius Thomas, Wes Welker, [Randy] Moss, this feels like that - I like that."

Merloni mentions a few other teams that will still make noise next season.

"I think Baltimore is always an interesting team, Pittsburgh the way they ended the year," Merloni said. "They're kind of always around, those sort of teams. But it sort of feels like Year 3 of Andrew Luck, that's kind of a team you keep an eye on, Indianapolis."
