They didn’t have a team above .500 last year. They didn’t even have a team at 8-8 in 2014.
In 2015, then, it’s no surprise that the NFC South presents one of the most confusing and confounding collections of teams in the league.
So who will win the division? That’s the topic of Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, which gets rolling at the special time of 5:00 p.m. ET.
Before answering, keep this in mind: Until 2014, there had never been a back-to-back winner of the division that was created by realignment of the league in 2002. Also, from 2003 through 2010, the last place team from the prior season responded with at least 10 wins or the division title the next year.
So with the Panthers going for three in a row, good luck picking this one. Coming up at 5:00 p.m. ET, we’ll show you the results and Rodney Harrison and I will make our own picks.
Then again, you can see the results right here — until the poll changes for Thursday’s show, that is.
