State of the NFC South

Saints icon(5-1)

Week six: @Patriots, 31-27 (L)

A late collapse by the defense cost the Saints a game they probably should have won. They still have a commanding lead in the division though.

Next up: Bills

We’ll need to keep an eye on Jimmy Graham’s leg injury moving forward, but the Saints should be a near lock against a very beatable Bills secondary at home.

Panthers icon(2-3)

Week 6: @ Vikings, 35-10 (W)

Cam Newton threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns in the win, and the Panthers front seven continues to look formidable. Be sure to keep AP and his family in your prayers.

Next up: Rams

I felt the Rams defense was much better than their numbers showed going into Houston. Now we’ll flip that card and say the Texans offense made them look much better than they actually are. If Newton can stay composed against a vicious pass rush, they should be able to pull this one out at home. That’s a big if though, so this game should be close.

Week 6: Bye

Next up: Buccaneers

The Falcons offense took a huge hit with the loss of Julio Jones in week five, but the likely return of Steven Jackson should give the offense a much-needed boost on the ground. It’s hard not to like the Falcons to bounce back at home, but this Bucs defense could make it a long afternoon.

Buccaneers icon(0-5)

Week 6: Eagles, 31-20 (L)

Schiano has got to be on the hot seat now. This Bucs team is too talented to be 0-5, even with a rookie under center.

Next up: @ Falcons

If the Bucs defense can’t take advantage of a rattled Falcons offense, it’s going to be a very long day. They’ve got to get Doug Martin going early.
