The New Orleans Saints are hoping to win the NFC South this year, that would be the fourth time in the last four years; here is how that happens.
The New Orleans Saints have won the NFC South every year for the past three seasons. One year, they tied in record with the Carolina Panthers, but they won the tiebreaker by beating them earlier in that same season.
That year was the last year that another team in the division had a winning record. The Panthers and Falcons both made the playoffs in 2017 with 11-5 and 10-6 records. The NFC South had a competition that year.
Last year, the Saints won the division handily.
In fact, for the last two years, the Saints, who finished 13-3 in both years, were the only team in the NFC South who finished above .500. Everyone else had losing record over the last two years.
This year, the Saints are looking to win it again, but it might be a little harder this year. The Buccaneers and Panthers drastically improved their teams adding Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, and Teddy Bridgewater and Robby Anderson.
Here are four reasons the Saints will win the NFC South division for the fourth year in a row.
