Overreaction: The Saints have won the NFC South
The Saints are now on top of the NFC South with a 6-2 record surpassing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are 6-3 now. Obviously, New Orleans has had their bye week and the Buccaneers haven’t, but Saints’ fans shouldn’t celebrate just yet.
They might be on top after Week 9, but the Saints have a long road to go before claiming themselves the winners of the NFC South. The Buccaneers have a pretty easy remaining schedule with a bye week and their only top game coming against Kansas City.
The Saints, on the other hand, play the 49ers (who play in the hardest division), the Kansas City Chiefs (Super Bowl champions), and the Philadelphia Eagles (leader for the NFC East). Two of the three of them are not at home too.
There is a good possibility that the Buccaneers still come away on top of the NFC South. Obviously, we don’t want that to happen, but Saints’ fans shouldn’t be considering their team the winners this early in the season.
