The Saints won the battle for the top spot in the NFC, but the Rams don't fall far. The Vikings, Panthers, Bears and Falcons continue to rise. Philadelphia wins for not playing, but everyone else in the conference is in trouble.  
In Brees We Trust! What a game??? NOLA and LA has separated itself from the pack. CAR is a good ball club. CHI is top 10 on both sides of the ball. MINN is starting to click. WAS shows uncertainty. PHI may be recovering from SB hangover. ATL is starting to resemble "Who we thought they were?"GB gets a pass in NE. SEA is gritty but missing something. DAL can't win at home on MNF. TB cannot stop a runny nose on D. DET, AZ, SF, and NY are bottom dwellers in need of a makeover.

NFC is proving top heavy but the NFC North still has three competitive teams and the South isn't too far behind. Teams to watch LA, NOLA, MINN, CAR, CHI, and ATL. This will be a fun second half of the season...
The Saints have the top spot this week after an impressive 45-35 win against the Rams. One team people should keep an eye on are the Atlanta Falcons as they rise through the standings. The Eagles are in the middle of the pack but can come back to the playoffs by claiming the dumpster fire of a division the NFC East. Keeping the theme was dumpster fires the 49ers and Giants play in the loser gets the number 1 pick bowl, where the loser could be the winner in the long run.
Despite the Saints win over the Rams, I feel they are not the best team in the conference as yet. But its close. The Panthers and Bears continue their impressive runs in 2018. The Cowboys and Cardinals need to start thinking about 2019.
