Is the NFL playoff system heading south?

A heated discussion is taking place involving the NFL, its teams, and its fans—and thankfully the debate has nothing to do with Ray Rice or Adrian Peterson. Rather, one of two teams in the NFC South will win the division and host a playoff game—and neither can end up with a winning record. In just about any other year, such a tight divisional race would be just what the parity...
