The NFC South was the laughing stock of the National Football League in 2014, failing to produce a team with a winning record. However, the incompetent play of all four organizations made for an exciting playoff race down the stretch as the Carolina Panthers won, thanks to a tie against the Cincinnati Bengals earlier in the year.

2014 NFC South Standings:

1. Carolina Panthers, 7-8-1
2. New Orleans Saints, 7-9
3. Atlanta Falcons, 6-10
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 2-14

As the season approaches, let’s take a look at what we can expect from the NFC South in 2015.
