NFC South Standings 2013: Panthers, Falcons Closing the Gap on Saints

New, comments

The Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons both got wins this Sunday while the Saints stood still at the top, making things a little bit more interesting in the NFC South.

Despite being on a bye this week and not playing any game, the Saints still have a firm grasp on first place in the NFC South.

But the Carolina Panthers are now just two games behind the Saints and closing the gap. Carolina beat the Rams 30-15 yesterday, their second win in a row. The Saints must play the Panthers twice this season so things are still interesting in the division.

The Falcons and Buccaneers actually played each other yesterday, with Atlanta getting their second win of the season. At this point the Falcons would have a very difficult road to the top. The Bucs obviously pose zero threat to any team in the league, let alone the Saints.
