Is this still Cam Newton’s house? He’s young, he’s brash, and he’s awesome. But how long will his Panthers rein in the NFC South? It still has extremely deep talent, with the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers, the New Orleans Saints, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Each team has a legit franchise player in the likes of Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Drew Brees, and Jameis Winston. The NFC South is a tough one to call, and has been for a few years.
Around The NFL Writer, Conor Orr, said that the, “NFC South remains one of the most bizarre divisions in football.” The Carolina Panthers have had the most success in the division. But even they are tough to predict, after winning the division with a sub-.500 record one year, they went on to run away with it the following year and nearly went undefeated.

Bet On NFL NFC South Games
Let’s start with the Panthers. Despite what you saw at Super Bowl 50, this team has a high octane offense and a championship level defence, minus the championship. This team has gone from good to great over the last 3 years. They are now the team to beat in their division, their conference and the entire NFL.
As for the Falcons, since falling from glory in 2012, they have gotten incrementally better each year, winning 4, then 6, then 8 games. This year, they will have to work very hard to see the same improvements. 10 wins will be tough.
Elsewhere, the Saints have had one of the most flawed defences in the NFL recently and it really killed them last year. The offensive talent is the only reason they win. Drew Brees remains amazing, and as long as he’s healthy, they can beat any team in a single game situation. The playoffs is a stretch though.
