Guesses on prime-time appearances

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Just had lunch with a couple of high-ranking officials for an NFC South team and they're as much in the dark as the rest of us about what the NFL schedule is going to look like.

In the past, teams usually got some advance notice, but not this year. They'll just have to wait until 7 p.m. ET like the rest of us.

I'm going to go ahead and give guesses on prime-time appearances for the NFC South. I'll say Atlanta gets three prime-time games. Carolina and New Orleans each get two. I'll say Tampa Bay gets either one or zero appearances in prime time.
