Carolina Panthers (11-5): The Panthers won't repeat the regular season success that they had last year. Their offense will get a boost with Benjamin returning however their defense may take a step back after losing Norman during the offseason.
Atlanta Falcons (8-8): Dan Quinn will look to repeat what he did with the team in the first half of the year last season before their 2-7 collapse in the 2nd half. I don't see that happening but this young and upcoming team will be more consistent.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9): Jameis Winston looks to be just what the Buccs were looking for. The Buccs look to go the way the Falcons are going and they hope to show that they will contend for the division in years to come.
New Orleans Saints (6-10): Even though the Saints offensively are still strong, there defense is god awful. The Saints are in rebuild mode and it's about time they move on from Drew Brees and look to the future.
