The NFC South was one of the best divisions in the NFL last season, with three teams battling for playoff spots.
The Atlanta Falcons took a huge step forward en route to a 12-4 record and first round bye. They had a balanced offensive attack that featured incredible seasons from Matt Ryan, Rodd White and Michael Turner.
Everything unraveled in the playoffs against the Green Bay Packers, but it was still a memorable season for the Falcons, and one they can build on for the 2011 campaign. Read on for my predictions and breakdown of their 2011 schedule.
The New Orleans Saints took a step back after winning the 2010 Super Bowl. They were upset by the Seattle Seahawks, the first ever 7-9 team in postseason history this past season. What should we expect from Drew Brees and Co. this upcoming season?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers shocked the NFL world by going from a 4-12 mark to 10-6 in only one season. Can they improve even further and make the playoffs?
Then there is the Carolina Panthers.
The worst team in the league last season has a ton of question marks under new head coach Ron Rivera. How much better can we expect them to be in 2011?
All this and more as we breakdown the 2011 schedules for every team in the NFC South.
