NOT GOOD ENOUGH

 

The Saints proved to be the class of the division but suffered another heart breaking loss to end the season. The rest of the NFC South failed to meet expectations with every team finishing with a losing record.

2018 SEASON REVIEW
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

After a heart breaking loss in Minnesota to end the previous season, you couldn't imagine a worse ending for New Orleans. Well that's exactly what happened, as a missed pass interference call played a major role in the Saints NFC Championship game loss.

ATLANTA FALCONS

The Falcons were hit hard early on by injuries and never could fully recover. There was still enough talent to compete in most games but not enough consistency to rack up enough wins for a winning season.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Carolina got off to a strong start to the season boasting a 6-2 record but key injuries on offense and a defense that unraveled led to an epic collapse and squandered Playoff opportunity.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

Tampa Bay began the year as one of the leagues feel good story behind a red hot offense better known as "Fitzmagic". Eventually the sand in that capsule ran out and it was back to reality as the Bucs went through the motions and suffered another losing season.
