Who will win this division?
The NFC South was predicted by nearly everyone to be won by the defending Super Bowl champion Saints. The Falcons were supposed to be a wild card team at best and the Buccaneers were supposed to be the worst team in the entire NFC.
None of that has turned out so far as the Falcons lead the division by one game, but technically two over the Saints. The Falcons beat the Saints in New Orleans so they have the tiebreaker advantage so far. These two teams meet in Week 16 for the final Monday night game of the season in Atlanta and the Falcons should win that game too.
The Buccaneers aren't out of this race just yet, although they're losing ground in a hurry. They were tied with the Falcons entering Sunday's battle, but lost to them and now with Atlanta already winning this week, trail by 1.5 games.
As for the potential all-NFC South matchup, it would be quite a game. It compares very closely to that of Falcons-Giants but what gives this game the higher rank is that it's an intra-divisional game and those are rare in a conference title game.
Once again, it'll come down to home-field advantage first and foremost and if the Falcons can earn the first seed, they'd be in great position.
The Saints would have a great chance in this game, though. Drew Brees hasn't had an extraordinary season, but he's still been good as he's thrown to a completion percentage of nearly 70 percent.
The Saints may also be the only team in the league that can stop Matt Ryan's high-flying passing attack. The Saints have allowed the fewest passing yards per game in the league so that would help them immensely in trying to win the game.
