NFC South schedule: Weeks 13-15





Week 13:

vs. Lions

@ Buccaneers

vs. Panthers

Week 14:

vs. Buccaneers

vs. Panthers

@ Saints

@ Falcons

Week 15:

@ Panthers

vs. Giants

vs. Falcons

@ Packers

This is the section of the schedule that includes a lot of NFC South matchups. The Falcons will host the Bucs and then travel to Carolina while the Saints and Bucs will also play the Panthers.

Assuming Carolina isn't buried by this time, this is when they could make a run at the division. Beating the Panthers in week one is important because of this stretch right here.
