CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Here's the stat you've all been waiting for because it's going to come to identify the NFC South this year. After Carolina's win at home against Tampa Bay Monday night, the NFC South is now a combined 24-2 in home games this season. That's a .923 winning percentage.

With six NFC South home games left, the NFC South has a chance to shatter the record -- even if they go 2-4 in the remaining games, to tie the record. Go at least 3-3 and the NFC South will have the record all to itself. Here's a look at the competition for most combined wins at home in a division through history.
