With a lot of help from the Saints, the NFC South stayed on pace to set a new record for a division winning its home games.

New Orleans' victory over Atlanta now puts the NFC South at 23-2 in home games. That's a .920 winning percentage. The Saints have one more home game, while Carolina, Tampa Bay and Atlanta each have two.

Here's a look at the best combined home winning percentages by a division since 1970:

1988 AFC Central 25-7-0 .781
