Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-110)

2019 W-L RecordHead CoachStarting QBOffensive PlaymakerDefensive Playmaker
7-9Bruce AriansTom BradyWR Mike EvansLB Shaquil Barrett

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Shaquil Barrett, Edge (franchise tag); Tom Brady, QB; Blaine Gabbert, QB (Re-signing, one-year deal); Joe Haeg, OL; Kevin Minter, LB; Jason Pierre- Paul, Edge (Re-signed, two-years, $27 million); Ryan Smith, CB (Re-signed); Ndamukong Suh, DT (Re-signed, one-year, $8 million)

Key offseason loss: Jameis Winston, QB

Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished 2019 with a final record of 7-9, with Jameis Winston’s league-leading 30 interceptions enough to get him the boot, the search for a replacement ending in the free-agent GOAT, Tom Brady, signing with the team.

There is no doubt that having Brady under center changes everything in Tampa Bay, especially given the team has surrounded him with the receiver talent he lacked in New England plus has made sure he will be protected and given enough time to do what he does.

And that protection was definitely boosted with the Bucs’ 13th overall pick in the draft, the front office selecting Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs, who looks to be an immediate starter at right tackle, solidifying a front line that will be responsible for giving Brady the several seconds he needs to release the ball.

New Orleans Saints (+110)

2019 W-L RecordHead CoachStarting QBOffensive PlaymakerDefensive Playmaker
13-3Sean PaytonDrew BreesWR Michael ThomasDE Cam Jordan

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Drew Brees, QB (Re-signing, two-years, $50 million): Taysom Hill, QB (two-year, $21 million extension); Malcolm Jenkins, S; David Onyemata, DT (Re-signed, three years, $27 million); Andrus Peat, OG (staying, five-years, $57.5 million); Emmanuel Sanders, WR; D.J. Swearinger, S; P.J. Williams, CB (Re-signing, one-year, $2 million); Jameis Winston, QB

The Payton/Brees team did it again, their New Orleans Saints finishing 13-3 and in first place of the NFC South in 2019 and for the third season in a row they played football in January, though they didn’t get far in the playoffs, losing to the Minnesota Vikings 20-26 in an exciting overtime game.

In an interesting backup quarterback shift, the Saints decided to let Teddy Bridgewater go and bring in Jameis Winston as the new backup to Brees, also signing Swiss Army Knife Taysom Hill to a 2-year deal, giving him the freedom to continue doing all the things he does on the field.

It was important for New Orleans’ front office to solidify the offensive line, so they signed left guard Andrus Peat to a five-year deal and selected Cesar Ruiz in the draft, the Michigan center the Saints hope to transition into a right guard for the 2020 season.

Atlanta Falcons (+4000)

2019 W-L RecordHead CoachStarting QBOffensive PlaymakerDefensive Playmaker
7-9Dan QuinnMatt RyanWR Julio JonesDE Dante Fowler

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Tyeler Davison, DT; Dante Fowler Jr., Edge; Todd Gurley, RB; Charles Harris, DE; Hayden Hurst, TE

In 2019, the Atlanta Falcons failed to make the postseason for the second season in a row, posting a 7-9 record like they did in 2018, finishing in second place once again in the NFC South behind the consistent Saints.

The Falcons’ front office attempted to use free agency to upgrade their offensive attack by bringing in running back Todd Gurley, assuming he still has gas left in his tank, plus they brought in tight end Hayden Hurst, who should make a nice, giant target for Ryan over the middle of the field.

But improving on defense was also a huge priority this offseason, the Falcons using their first-round pick to snag Clemson cornerback A.J. Terrell, extending the contract of defensive tackle Tyeler Davison, using free agency to get edge rusher Dante Fowler and trading for defensive end Charles Harris.

Carolina Panthers (+1200)

2019 W-L RecordHead CoachStarting QBOffensive PlaymakerDefensive Playmaker
5-11Matt RhuleTeddy BridgewaterRB Christian McCaffreyFS Tre Boston

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Robby Anderson, WR; Tre Boston, S (Re-signing, three-years, $18 million); Teddy Bridgewater, QB; Pharoh Cooper, WR; Seth DeValve, TE; John Miller, G; Russell Okung, LT; Seth Roberts, WR; P.J. Walker, QB; Stephen Weatherly, DE; Tahir Whitehead, LB

It will be interesting to see if former Baylor Head Coach Matt Rhule can redirect the Carolina Panthers back to their winning ways after the team posted a lousy 5-11 record in 2019, failing to make the postseason for the third season in the last four and costing Ron Rivera his job after nine seasons.

It makes sense to bring in a new coach since the Panthers are also finally banking on a new quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, who has quietly accumulated a 22-12 record over his five years in the NFL, the last two as the backup to eventual Hall-of-Famer Drew Brees down in New Orleans.

The other big emphasis of the Panthers’ offseason was to solidify the defensive line by bringing in free agent defensive end Stephen Weatherly and using the first two picks in the draft to grab Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown with the 7th overall pick and Penn State defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos with the 38th pick.

The NFC South is the only division since the 2002 realignment to have each of its teams make a conference championship game appearance as well as a Super Bowl appearance

The New Orleans Saints have won one NFC championship and turned it into a Super Bowl win: XLIV in 2009.

The Tampa Bay Bucs have also won one NFC championship and turned it into a Super Bowl win: XXXVII in 2002.

Next are the Atlanta Falcons, who won two NFC championships but could not turn either of them into a Super Bowl win.

Last are the Carolina Panthers, who also won two NFC championships and could not turn either of them into a Super Bowl win.
