Yes, but not every year.
In general, divisional teams play each other twice per season (home and away), and depending on the season play one game with teams from a different, specified division. In this manner, AFC West teams will play AFC East teams if that is the specified division that season.
Yes, the teams rotate interconference play based on divisions. For instance, the NFC East teams play the AFC South teams in 2010. In 2011, the NFC East will play the AFC East.
The two teams won't play again until the 2011 season, when NFC East teams will play AFC East teams.

The National Football League (NFL) consists of 32 teams and is divided into two conferences - the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC) - each of which has 16 teams apiece. Each Conference is divided into 4 divisions - North, South, East and West. Each division has in it 4 teams apiece. So there is the AFC North, AFC South, AFC East and AFC West as well as the NFC North, AFC South, AFC East and AFC West. Visit nfl.com if you would like a complete listing of all the teams in each division - for brevity's sake i shalln't list them here. Hope this answers your question!
In 2010 the Titans will play the following - Their division opponants - The Colts, the Jaguars, and the Texans - twice. The AFC West, hosting the Broncos and Raiders while traveling to San Diego and Kansas City. The NFC East, hosting the Eagles and Redskins while traveling to Dallas and to New York. The AFC North and AFC East teams with the same divisional finish as they - i.e. if the Titans finished fourth in the AFC South they would play the fourth-place teams from the AFC North (the Browns) and the AFC East (the Bills).
The Broncos are in the AFC West.

The Dallas Cowboys will play the AFC East teams in 2011:Home: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins.Away: New England Patriots, New York Jets.
Unless the two teams are headed for a postseason showdown in Super Bowl XLVI, they won't play each other during the 2011 season. They aren't likely to meet again in a game that counts until 2013, when the teams of the NFC East will play the teams of the AFC West.
No. The Cowboys and the other teams in the NFC East will play the teams of the AFC East in 2011. The Cowboys and the Steelers are likely to play at Cowboys Stadium during the 2012 season.
There is no team outside of the AFC East that the New England Patriots play every year. This is the case with all NFL teams. Each NFL team's 16-game schedule includes six games within the team's own division (one home, one away for each division rival); four games against teams from a single other division within the same conference (on a rotating basis); and four games against teams from a division from the other conference (on a rotating basis). The other two games are played against teams from the remaining two divisions within the same conference, selected by the teams' final positions within their division standings the previous season. Thus, for example, in 2013, the Patriots play the other three AFC East teams (Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins) twice each; all four teams from the AFC North (Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers); and all four teams from the NFC South (Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers). And since the Patriots finished 2012 in first place in the AFC East, they also play the Denver Broncos, who finished first in the AFC West, and the Houston Texans, who finished first in the AFC South. In 2014, the Patriots will play the Bills, Jets and Dolphins; all four teams in the AFC West; all four teams in the NFC North; and whichever teams finish in the same place in the AFC North and South as the Patriots finish in the AFC East. While the Patriots, thus, will play the Broncos in each of those years, this is only because the teams finished first in their divisions in 2012 and because the AFC East is matched up with the AFC West in 2014. There is no guarantee within the NFL scheduling formula that the Patriots will play any team from any division outside the AFC East in consecutive years.
There are 2 conferences the NFC and AFC. Each Conference has 16 teams. The 16 teams are broken into 4 divisions. (in each conference) Each team plays the 3 other teams in their conference 2 times. (6 games) Each teams plays every team in a non conference division. (for example 1 year the AFC East teams play the NFC East teams, the next year they'll play the NFC West) This adds another 4 games. You then do the same thing against a Conference division. (Jets play the entire AFC West this year- 2008) (4 games) The final 2 games teams play against the other 2 divisions in their conference, the teams that were in the same place as them last year. (The Jets were 3rd in the AFC East last year, so they play the Titans who were 3rd in the AFC South last year, and the Bengals who were 3rd in the AFC North) These calculations result in the 16 games that compose a teams NFL schedule. I don't know how they figure out the home and away games, other than each team plays 8 home and 8 away, and each divisonal opponent teams play once at home and 1 away.
AFC East divisional foes the Patriots, Jets, Bills, and Colts The Steelers and Oilers in the AFC Central The Chargers and Raiders in the AFC West The Cowboys, Cardinals, Redskins, and Eagles in the NFC East.
No. The AFC division they play in 2010 is the AFC West.
The top teams in each of the eight divisions will automatically make the playoffs. Then there are two wildcard teams that make the playoffs from each conference (NFC & AFC). These two wildcard teams in each conference make the playoffs based off of who has the best record other than the four that have already won their division. If two teams have the same record, then they look at the head to head games, and then their point differential. Recap: 8 teams who win their conferences, 4 in each conference (NFC, AFC), automatically make it (AFC West, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, NFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South) 4 teams, 2 in each conference (NFC, AFC), who have the best records other than the teams in the conference who have already won their division.
There are 4 divisions in each conference. East, North, South, and West. Each has 4 teams. There are 2 conferences NFC and AFC for a total of 32 teams.
