Here are our season predictions for how the NFC South Division will pan out this year.

Last season we saw the New Orleans Saints and the Carolina Panthers both finish 11-5, and the Falcons coming just under them at 10-6.  The Saints ended the Panthers season early with a victory in the wild card to advance and play the Minnesota Vikings.  The Vikings won on a walkoff touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.  The Falcons happened to move on and defeat the LA Rams to face the eventual Super Bowl 52 Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles in the the divisional round.

It is a new season and there is a lot to talk about with new players entering the league and players also retiring.  We look ahead to this years NFC South division,  always a very tough division to play in.  Especially considering that threeof the four teams in the division did advance to the playoffs last season.

With all the rookies coming in this season, there’s definitely a lot to look at.  The Falcons have a young team this season, and possibly one of the youngest defenses in the league. They are highly skilled and talented.  The Falcons will be bringing back their two main cornerback threats, Trufant and Alford, but also add in a couple new guys that’ll  definitely see the field this year. Rookie DB Isaiah Oliver will be one of them.

My predictions for the 2018-2019 season; I have the Falcons coming in at a solid 13-3, with the Saints following closely behind at 11-5, the Panthers coming in third at 9-7, and lastly the Buccaneers finishing at a rough 7-9.  I may sound a bit biased putting the Falcons at the top with 13 wins, but this young stacked team is poised for another Super Bowl run.
