The National clubs take four of the last five Super Bowl titles, including each of the last three. And 2011 marked the first season since 1995 that the NFC won more games than the AFC interconference (33-31, 516).

That streak ended in the AFC that lasted more than a decade with the AFC winning series of the season interconference online 15 years (1996-2010). During that time, the AFC teams recorded a combined 515-418-3 (.552) against the NFC.

Continuing the trend of 2011, the NFC clubs recorded a 20-12 mark in interconference games this season, ahead of the AFC opponents by a margin of 868-677, while maintained a difference of turnovers +21 in those games.

"This is a change consistent play from the NFC, especially in defense," says NFL Network analyst GINEST WILLIE MC, who spent his entire career in the AFC with the New England Patriots (1994-2005) and Cleveland Browns (2006-08). "As a defensive player, he always knew the AFC for being physical enough, and now we are seeing the NFC as a whole ran well with the ball and playing great defense."

NFC clubs have really been effective carrying the ball this season, as all three leaders in rushing in the NFL are all of the conference: Adrian Peterson (775 yards), Minnesota, MARSHAWN LYNCH (757), Seattle and rookie ALFRED MORRIS (717), Washington.

"It was definitely a surprise to see in the past how the AFC was dominating the NFC, and now see how much has changed," says NFL Network analyst and former center of the New York Giants SHAUN O'HARA. "When you look at the conferences, the NFC offensive seems to be much more powerful. That certainly seems to translate into wins. "

This season, five of the top seven teams in total yards per game are from the NFC:

(TEAM - yards per game)

New England - 440.8

Detroit - 407.6

Denver - 405.4

N.Y. Giants - 396.8

New Orleans - 388.6

Washington - 387.4

Dallas - 383.3

The ninth week will interconference four games, among which stand out the Giants (6-2) getting the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) on Sunday afternoon. The rest will be Detroit Lions (NFC) at Jacksonville Jaguars (AFC), Chicago Bears (NFC) at Tennessee Titans (AFC), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFC) at Oakland Raiders (AFC).

The Giants or the Steelers appeared in five of the last seven Super Bowls, combining for four NFL championships during that span.

New York is 16-9 against AFC teams during the regular season since 2006, the second best mark among NFC clubs. Additionally, the Giants are 2-0 in Super Bowls against AFC teams during that span, defeating New England in Super Bowl XLII, and XLVI.
