NFC South History

Did You Know?

-- The Falcons played four games decided by three points or less, losing three times to the Seahawks, Chargers, and Chiefs. In each of those three defeats, Atlanta led in the fourth quarter.

-- The Panthers posted a 5-1 division mark two seasons ago when they made the Super Bowl, but Carolina slumped to a 1-5 ledger inside the NFC South this past season.

-- New Orleans was money in the bank when receiving points in 2016 by compiling an 8-1 ATS record as an underdog. The Saints won and covered both times as a home ‘dog against the Panthers and Seahawks, while owning a 4-0 ATS record when getting points at the Superdome since 2015.

-- The Buccaneers have lost four consecutive home openers after falling to the Rams last September, 37-32. Tampa Bay looks to turn around that trend as the Bucs host the Bears in Week 2, a team that went 0-8 on the road last season.
