Lately, the winner of the NFC has come out of the NFC South. Carolina took the conference in 2015 which was followed up by Atlanta in 2016. Both teams failed at the final hurdle, losing to the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, respectively. The question is whether this trend will continue. Atlanta has a good shot at rebounding while a lot is expected of the up-and-coming Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team led by Jameis Winston. However, the winning team won't come out of the NFC South in coming seasons.

How To Win At NFC Betting
The NFC crown is up for grabs in coming season, with about six teams seriously vying for conference supremacy. They are the Cowboys, Falcons, Giants, Packers, Seahawks and maybe, just maybe, the Carolina Panthers. That is, of course, if Cam Newton can find his MVP form once again. There are some dark horses you'll want to keep an eye on but most people are putting money on teams with seasoned veterans at the helm.
Aaron Rodgers only has a few elite years left and he'll do his utmost to leave a winner, akin to what Payton Manning did in Denver. Rodgers has the offense to augment his Super Bowl claim. They are the best bet to make it to the dance.
The Cowboys will face a lot of questions in coming seasons but are a sound pick regardless of suspesnions and other personnel problems. They have the best offensive line in the league and are led by Dak Prescott, who is the real deal. Ezekiel Elliott, if he can get his off-field antics under control and avoids the injury bug, will be one of the league's best running backs for the next decade.
Atlanta will have their work cut out for them, especially coming off one of the most devastating Super Bowl losses of all time. Matt Ryan, though, is a winner and will rebound from that devastating loss. The Falcons are also a solid futures pick for the next few seasons. They've got a point to prove so don't be surprised if they defy the naysayers and return to clear the final hurdle they so agonizingly got tripped up by last season.
The Giants and Seahawks are futures bets that come with a bit more risk. Seattle isn't the same team they were a few seasons ago but still have one of the best defenses in the league. Oh, and their supremely dominant on home field.
Eli Manning, and his defense, will have to carry his team if the Giants are to win the NFC. We all know their defense can play, so it will be up to the all-star quarterback to run the show. It shouldn't be too hard with the wealth of offensive options he has at his disposal.
