The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to win the NFC South when it comes to travel this season.

According to numbers from the NFL on preseason and regular-season travel, the Bucs will travel 23,018 miles this season. That ranks them sixth in the NFL and well ahead of the rest of the NFC South. The Bucs' schedule is padded a bit by a midseason trip to London to play the Patriots.

New Orleans ranks second in the division, but 20th in the league with the team scheduled to travel 16,392 miles. The Falcons are scheduled to travel 14,944, ranking them No. 23 in the league. Carolina is one spot behind with 14,196 miles.
