Football NFC South


What is NFC South in Football?

The NFC South is one of the four divisions of the National Football Conference of the NFL. It is comprised of the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The NFC South was created in 2002 when the NFL realigned the league's divisions. It is the youngest division in football along with the AFC South. All four current teams were original members.

Balanced History

The NFC South is not known for their overwhelming success, rather their consistency. Teams within the division rarely outshine one another, as it is the only division since its establishment to never have a team win all of its divisional matchups.

It is also the only division in this time period to have each of its members make an appearance in the Super Bowl. Tampa Bay and New Orleans both capitalized on their only chance, winning in 2003 and 2009 respectively, while Carolina (0-2) and Atlanta (0-1) have never hoisted the Lombardi Trophy.

The Saints and Panthers are tied with five division crowns a piece, with the Falcons close behind at four and the Buccaneers holding up the rear with three. Only twice, Carolina from 2013-2015 and New Orleans from 2017-2018, has a division winner won multiple years in a row, emphasizing how balanced the AFC South has been.
