NFC South about to make history

1/6/2012

The NFC South already has made history in the regular season. But there’s more to come in the playoffs.

When the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints play on Saturday night, it will represent a meeting of the two quarterbacks with the most combined regular-season passing yards in playoff history. Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford combined for 10,514 yards in the regular season.

Sunday’s meeting between the Falcons and the Giants will come in second on that list. Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and New York’s Eli Manning combined for 9,110 yards during the regular season.
