NFC South made road history in 2010

The NFC South made some history in the 2010 season and we didn’t even realize it until it was pointed out by the always-helpful Dan Berglund of Tampa Bay’s media relations staff.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints each finished with a 6-2 road record. No division ever had three teams with a road record better than 6-2 in the same season since realignment in 2002. But the NFC South had some company in the record-setting season.

The AFC East also had three teams -- the New England Patriots, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins -- go 6-2 on the road in 2010.
