- Kansas City Chiefs
- With the same returning squad, for the most part, the returning champions, defend their crown as NFL Champions. As long as Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill stay healthy, the Chiefs’ offense will be unstoppable, once again.
- New Orleans Saints
- With the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, you have to imagine that the Saints are in a “WIN-NOW” situation, as Drew Brees’ career comes to a close. Sean Payton has all the weapons necessary to win, but there is only one thing that we can all count on the Saints doing, and that is losing in big games. However, look for Sean Payton and the Saints to make one last final run at the Lombardi trophy.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Yes, with the addition of Brady and Gronk, the Bucs will be an offensive machine, with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. However, with the lack of time together, due to the coronavirus, the offense is losing much needed time together. Without the chemistry, the Buccaneers do not make it to the top.
- Baltimore Ravens
- Lamar Jackson is a superstar. But, will NFL defenses figure him out, like college defenses did after his Heisman breakout season at Louisville? While returning the same squad, it is up to Lamar Jackson, and Jim Harbaugh to determine their fate in the playoffs this season.
- San Francisco 49ers
- Kyle Shanahan’s west coast offense proved to be effective last season. With one of the best rushing attacks in the league in Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert, expect nothing less this season. Robert Salah’s defense was outstanding.
- Seattle Seahawks
- As long as the Seahawks have Russell Wilson, they will always be in title contention. With the possibility of D.K. Metcalf staking himself as one of the best receivers in the league, the Seattle offense could have a big year.
- Houston Texans
- While the Texans did lose star wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals, their hope stands in young quarterback, Deshaun Watson. Watson could be the epitome of the future build of a star quarterback in the NFL.
- Denver Broncos
- Young quarterback, Drew Lock, displayed his potential at the end of the 2019-20 season. With the addition of Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, the Broncos’ 2019-20 struggling offense, could turn into one of the most effective offenses in the league between Lock, Lindsay, and Jeudy.
- Buffalo Bills
- Josh Allen had a fantastic season last year as the guy under center for the Bills. He displayed his ability to use his legs, but showed some holes in his arm talent. The Bills have a strong defense with Tremaine Edmunds and Tre’Davious White. The Bills are just missing that offensive playmaker to put them in title contention.
- Tennessee Titans
- The ground and pound game that the Tennessee Titans play, will always work. Derrick Henry is a physical specimen and the offense revolves around the giant. The defense plays tough and gives up nothing, which is a bad matchup for a run-first offense, like the Baltimore Ravens. If they get the right matchups, watch for the Titans to make another miracle run.
- Green Bay Packers
- With all the drama surrounding Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love, the Packers’ season could be one of the best, with Rodgers knowing that he has someone nipping at his heels now. On the flip side, the drama could result in a “sub-par” Rodgers season, therefore, leading to the crash and burn of Green Bay.
- Dallas Cowboys
- Potential. Potential describes the Dallas Cowboys. With Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, and now CeeDee Lamb, the Cowboys offense should, the keyword is “should”, be a powerhouse. However, somehow “America’s Team” just can’t get it done, year after year. If Mike McCarthy can rally the young guns behind him, the Cowboys can make a deep run into the playoffs.
