Cam Jordan: ‘I don’t know if there’s a higher-level-playing division’ than the NFC South

Three of the four teams in the NFC South are 2-1, making it the division with the most clubs with winning records. That doesn’t surprise New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan, whose team is among the clubs in the division with winning marks. He saw the NFC South as presenting every bit as much strength in 2017, with a pair of 11-5 teams (the Saints and Carolina Panthers) and a 10-6 club (the Atlanta Falcons).

He threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns. But it was his final scoring throw, a 75-yard connection with Randall Cobb, that decided the outcome. And Cobb’s role in the play can’t be overlooked.
