The NFL kicked off the second half of the 2023 regular season this week and the playoff race is heating up as we reach the mid-point of November. Nobody will be clinching a division title anytime soon, and while Week 10 saw some big wins by first-place teams, nobody will pull too far away in their division this week.

The AFC South is tightening up. The first-place Jaguars lost to the 49ers while the Colts climbed a little closer. The 49ers remain in first place with their win but will keep an eye on the Seahawks who could remain in a tie with them atop the NFC West.

Below are the eight divisional standings, along with some quick thoughts about each division after ten weeks of football. We’ll update with remaining records as the league moves toward Week 11.
