Until the Carolina Panthers pulled off a double dip, by winning the division back-to-back during the 2012 and 2013 NFL seasons, no team had ever won two straight NFC South regular season titles. The Panthers completed the 3-Peat in 2015 but the first 14 South Championships were split fairly even between the Panthers who have five and the Falcons, Saints and Buccaneers who each own three titles. That sharing of the wealth is the most even of all NFL divisions from 2002 to 2015.
After they closed out their 25-year NFC Central stay in 2001, Tampa Bay christened the NFC South in grand style. During the inaugural season of the division, the Buccaneers won Super Bowl XXXVII as they ripped the Oakland Raiders 48-21 in 2002. The only other NFL Champion out of the NFC South, through the 2015 campaign, was New Orleans who posted a thrilling 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts to claim Super Bowl XLIV. Prior to the start of the 2016 season, the Panthers are 0-1 during NFL title tries and the Falcons haven’t participated in the Super Bowl Sunday festivities.
