What will be the order in the NFC South this coming season?

The division probably isn't up for grabs, but the order is still in question.

We don't yet know how good the Falcons are going to fare in 2016, but that isn't going to stop us from guessing. While we're at it, care to guess how the NFC South will finish?

This is deceptively difficult. The Carolina Panthers are the easy favorites to finish in first, but they're almost certainly going to regress a bit from 15-1, given their crazy turnover luck in 2016. The Falcons have one of the league's toughest schedules, even though I think they're improved, and the Buccaneers have made strides but may not be ready for primetime. The Saints are a true wild card, because they're never as good or bad as I expect them to be, depending on the year.

I've got...

Panthers
Falcons
Buccaneers
Saints

How about you?
