Through four weeks of the NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons (NFC) and Houston Texans (AFC) both look like the teams to beat in their respective conferences. NFL fans have been fortunate enough to see great rookie performances from Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, and Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein (who?!). The sophomore class has had its share of great performances as well, with the rise of Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
Throughout four weeks, the contenders and pretenders are beginning to separate…luckily for all NFL fans though, it looks like practically any team (except for a few) could become legitimate playoff contenders in 2012.
