Who's the best in the NFC?
With apologies to the NFC East, whose season did not start until Sunday night, the NFC's major powers -- at least according to the Super Bowl odds -- all played Sunday afternoon. Early on, the Saints held off a late Falcons goal-to-go to open the season 1-0, a nice development, considering New Orleans' 0-4 start a year ago. Seattle, meanwhile, slogged through a 12-7 win over the improved Panthers. In the late game, the Seahawks' NFC West nemesis, San Francisco, outlasted the Packers 34-28, thanks in large part to Colin Kaepernick's 412 passing yards and three TDs. What does all this mean for the National Football Conference?
