NFC South schedule: Weeks 1-3





Week 1:

vs. Panthers

vs. Titans

@ Falcons

@ Vikings

Week 2:

vs. Packers

@ Panthers

vs. Saints

vs. Bears

Week 3:

@ Lions

@ Packers

@ Seahawks

vs. Eagles

If the Atlanta Falcons can win in week one then the Saints should be their biggest rival for the first three weeks.

The Saints play a Titans team that does not look good on paper and then two teams with unproven quarterbacks. For the Panthers, they obviously have two divisional games to open up and then a Seahawks team that should be able to slice their pass defense to pieces

As for the Buccaneers, I would be shocked if they win more than one game in the first three weeks.
