Week 11 NFL Standings, NFC South: Falcons Lead With Saints And Bucs A Game Back


NFC South Standings

W L T PF PA
Atlanta 8 2 0 256 192
Tampa Bay 7 3 0 209 206
New Orleans 7 3 0 235 170
Carolina 1 9 0 117 252

Through 10 games, the NFC South has turned into one of the best divisions in football. The Atlanta Falcons lead the way at 8-2 while the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a game back at 7-3. The Carolina Panthers are, to put it nicely, struggling.

The Falcons have already beaten the Saints and Buccaneers once but have yet to play the Panthers this season. With the NFC full of good teams, there's likely only going to be two teams in this division to make the playoffs. That means one, really deserving team will be sitting at home in January.

The Falcons play the 7-3 Green Bay Packers next week but then finish with four division games in their last five. With two games against the Panthers and a game against the Seattle Seahawks, the Falcons should be at 11 wins with the possibility for more depending on how they handle the Saints and Buccaneers the second time around.
