The NFC West is a division of the National Football League
National Football League
(NFL)'s National Football Conference
National Football Conference
(NFC). It currently has four members: the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Rams, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Seattle
Seattle
Seahawks. The division was formed in 1967 as the National Football League Coastal Division, keeping with the theme of having all of the league's divisions starting with the letter "C." The division was so named because its teams were fairly close to the coasts of the United States, although they were on opposite coasts, making for long travel between division rivals. The NFL Coastal Division had four members: Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Colts, Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Rams, and San Francisco 49ers. Los Angeles
Los Angeles
and San Francisco occupied the West Coast, while Baltimore and Atlanta occupied the East Coast. After the AFL–NFL merger

in 1970, the division was renamed the NFC West. The Baltimore Colts

moved to the AFC East

and were replaced by the New Orleans Saints. In 1976, the newly formed Seattle
Seattle
Seahawks spent one season in this division before moving to the AFC West. Except for that one year, the division remained the same until 1995 with the addition of the new Carolina Panthers

team. And even though the Rams moved to St. Louis
St. Louis
that same year, they remained in this division (despite the Dallas Cowboys

of the NFC East being located further west), leaving just one team on the West Coast. The 2002 re-alignment changed the entire look of the NFC West. The Falcons, Panthers, and Saints moved into the NFC South; while the Cardinals, the only team not from the Pacific Time Zone since 2016 (Mountain) and the Seahawks, moved in. The Rams remained in the West, preserving the historical rivalry with the 49ers that has existed since 1950, and thus had been the only team in the division that was located in the western half of the Rocky Mountains
Rocky Mountains
and from the Central Time Zone from 1995 to 2015 during their St. Louis
St. Louis
years. With the Rams' return to Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in 2016, the entire NFC West is located West of the Rockies for the first time in NFL history (and is the only division in the whole NFL to have that distinction). In 2010, the NFC West became the first division in NFL history to have a champion with a losing record, after the 2010 Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks
won the division title with a record of 7–9. They were joined in this distinction in 2014 by the Carolina Panthers, who won the NFC South with a record of 7–8–1. Since the end of the 2016 NFL regular season, the 49ers lead the division with a record of 560–464–16 (107–132–1 since re-alignment) with five Super Bowl
Super Bowl
titles and an overall playoff record of 31–21. The Rams hold a record of 544–554–21 (87–152–1 since re-alignment) with three Super Bowl
Super Bowl
appearances and one win to go with a 19–24 overall playoffs record. The Cardinals hold a 111–128-1 record since joining the NFC West (542–732–40 overall) and a loss in Super Bowl
Super Bowl
XLIII, currently with a 7–9 playoff record, 5-4 as a member of the NFC West. The Seahawks hold a record of 137–102-1 since joining the NFC West (325–318-1 overall), with three Super Bowl
Super Bowl
appearances, winning Super Bowl
Super Bowl
XLVIII to go with a playoff record of 16–14; they are currently 13–9 in the playoffs as a member of the NFC West, having gone 3–5 while in the AFC West. Since re-alignment, the Seahawks have led the division in wins, division titles, and playoff appearances.

Notes and Tiebreakers

a Los Angeles
Los Angeles
won the Coastal Division based on better point differential in head-to-head games (net 24 points) vs. Baltimore. The Rams and Colts played to a 24–24 tie in Baltimore in October before the Rams won 34–10 on the season's final Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The result would be the same under the modern tiebreaker, which relies first on head-to-head record ( Los Angeles
Los Angeles
won the head-to-head series, 1–0–1). b The Baltimore Colts
Baltimore Colts
won the NFL Championship, but lost to the AFL's New York Jets
New York Jets
in Super Bowl
Super Bowl
II. c Due to player strikes, the league shortened the 1982 season's games and realigned all the teams into conferences. The records for the division teams are based on what it would have looked like if they were still in the division.
