NFC South Articles

This decade-old rivalry will be renewed just as it was 10 years ago: in the third game of the season, in the Superdome and on “Monday Night Football.” It also marked the formal return of the Saints to New Orleans after the devastation...

Some surprises, both the good and bad kind, in Week 1 in terms of fantasy performances by wide receivers and tight ends. Before we look ahead to Week 2, let’s see how my Week 1 advice fared.   Good Calls...   Start Donte...

Carolina came up short in its quest to win a Super Bowl, but the three-time defending NFC South champion is very much a threat to play on Super Sunday again. New Orleans still has the offense to be a contender, but the Saints’ success could...

At first Dan Quinn made it look too easy. The former Seattle defensive coordinator stepped straight from a Super Bowl defense to a 5–0 start as a rookie head coach. Every move made to fix the floundering Falcons worked — until nothing...

Can the Carolina Panthers possibly be that good again? That’s the overriding question for a team that won 17 games in 2015, flirted with an undefeated regular season, employed the NFL’s Most Valuable Player and won the NFC...

We know the New Orleans Saints can amass yards and points. What we don’t know is if they can stop anyone from doing the same.   Defense will once again determine the Saints’ season, as it seemingly has every year in the Sean...

It’s hard to find fault with Jameis Winston’s body of work as a rookie. He passed for more than 4,000 yards and 22 touchdowns and rushed for six scores, earning Pepsi Rookie of the Year honors as voted by the fans. But Winston’s...

The big names and obvious attention grabbers will always be at the forefront in the weeks leading up to any Super Bowl. Super Bowl 50, pitting the Carolina Panthers against the Denver Broncos, is no exception. In fact, Super Bowl 50 seems to have...

In a shocking move to most people, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired head coach Lovie Smith in just his second season on the job. Smith was 8-24 in his stint in Tampa.  "After careful consideration, we informed Lovie that we have...

Thanks to an uninspired performance against the Falcons in Atlanta last week, any dreams the Carolina Panthers (14-1) had of a perfect season have come to an abrupt end. The Panthers must now re-focus and set their sights on locking up the No. 1...

When these two NFC South rivals last met just two weeks ago, it did not end well for the Atlanta Falcons (7-7), as they were pounded by the Panthers 38-0 in Charlotte. The Falcons hope that Week 16 will result in a completely different outcome in...

The Carolina Panthers (12-0) may have gotten a little complacent last week, just edging out a struggling Saints team to keep their perfect season intact. That said, a win is still a win, and last week's narrow victory also enabled Ron...

New Orleans gave a tremendous effort last Sunday. The Saints attempted to tarnish the record of the sole remaining undefeated team in the NFL. They came commendably close. Now, they have nothing left for which to strive other than avoiding a...

The Panthers have rolled through their first 11 games. Six of those wins, including the last three, have been by double digits. They only need to win one of their five remaining games in order to clinch the NFC South Division title. The Saints...

Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday. Fantasy-wise, it also means that you...

While there are plenty of things to be thankful for, one of them for football (and fantasy) fans is three games on Thanksgiving Day! And speaking of these three, oh-so-tasty matchups, what is a fantasy owner to do? While some decisions, like...

Is it just me or is the NFL and fantasy season flying by? Can you believe that it’s Thanksgiving already? The really good news is that since we are now in Week 12, every team has had their bye. So that means from here on out we have a...

What an interesting week we just witnessed in the NFL and fantasy! Who had the Falcons losing to the 49ers and who had Devonta Freeman only getting 12 yards on 12 carries? Thank goodness he caught a touchdown! And what about the Titans beating...

Anything can happen on any given Sunday, we all know that and the unpredictability of each game is what makes playing fantasy football so fun. But wouldn’t it be nice to look ahead and see what is going to happen in Week 8 of the NFL season?...

It is no exaggeration to label this game as the crossroads of the Saints' season. A loss in Charlotte would not just drop the Saints to 0-3. Since all losses would have occurred within the conference, the prospects of securing a wildcard spot...
