The Angels could clinch the American League West championship any day now, in the process setting a record for earliest date to clinch the AL West. Since baseball adopted division play in 1969, six teams have clinched a division championship on or before Sept. 12, according to STATS LLC. History suggests this division dominance does not guarantee the Angels will win the World Series, or even get there. Of these six teams, two won the World Series, two lost, and two did not get out of the first round.

They have the national following, a rich championship history, and the heartwarming sideshow of running back Jerome Bettis returning to his hometown to play for his first -- and probably last -- title. Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks, the NFC's top-seeded team, are relishing the role of underdog.
