2021 NFL Season Predictions - AFC & NFC West


2021 NFL Season Predictions

NFC West

Los Angeles Rams (12-5)

The Rams made probably one of the best offseason moves they could have ever made by trading the dumpster fire Jared Goff to Detroit (where he belongs) for Matthew Stafford. Stafford has always been a very good quarterback, but he’s just been stuck in Detroit so, now he will finally get his moment to prove whether or not he’s actually a good quarterback with a legit team! The only question on the offensive side of the ball will be at the running back position because they already lost the starter to a season ending injury and ended up trading for Sony Michele who has been fairly mediocre for his entire career. The defense will still be dominant as ever led by Aaron Donald the absolute beast defensive linemen who is a force you cannot stop. He gets double teamed on practically every play and that’s still not enough to hold him back. This defense is stacked from linemen, to linebackers, all the way to the secondary, basically they will be really difficult to score on and this is why I believe they will come out on top in the NFC West. The Rams have the full package, probably the best defense in the league, a high flying offense, and a no nonsense coach. That all sounds like a recipe for a nice Super Bowl run!


Seattle Seahawks (10-7) 

As long as the Seahawks have Russell Wilson they are going to be a competitive team. He has been the backbone of this team for years now and seems to get better with every season, no matter how much pressure is on him. He does have some help at the receiver position with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who are both big play receivers who are fast as fuck too! The main problem with the Seahawks offense is the ground game. The ground game has not been consistent since Marshawn Lynch left a few years ago, as a matter of fact it’s mostly been non-existent since he left. The offensive line has gone down hill over the years too and that in turn doesn’t help the ground game and it also puts Wilson under pressure, which isn’t a horrible position for him to be in, but at some point he’s going to get injured if he continues to get sacked at the rate he has been getting sacked at. The defense is pretty solid, definitely not what they used to be, but slowly building back up. I expect the Seahawks to be a solid team this year, but the weak offensive line may cost them a few important games in their division race.


San Francisco 49ers (8-9)

The 49ers, overall, are a very good team, other than the questions at the quarterback position. This puts them at an extreme disadvantage because of the division they are in. This division is, no doubt, going to beat up on each other and the 49ers have Jimmie Garappolo who gets injured if you even blow air his way and then they have a rookie behind him, Trey Lance, who I think has a high ceiling and an amazing arm, but he’s still a rookie, who didn’t play a snap last year due to COVID. The 9ers defense should be a power house with Nick Bosa coming back off of injury the pass rush is going to be insane. But, the most important player on the field is the quarterback, and with the uncertainty of that position for the 49ers this year I think it’s going to be a very rocky season for them!


Arizona Cardinals (7-10)

The shitty thing for the Cardinals is they are in such a difficult division, because if they were in any other division they would probably have a better shot at the playoffs, but here they are in the NFC West! The Cardinals on offense is pretty decent. I don’t think Kyler Murray is as exciting as everyone makes him out to be, but I also don’t think he’s the worst quarterback in the World. He can make some big plays through the air and on the ground occasionally, but the majority of his game isn’t really that impressive to me. Having Deandre Hopkins as your go-to receiver helps out a lot too when you want to just toss up a prayer because there’s a good chance he will be coming down with it! The Cardinals biggest weakness will be on the defensive side of the ball. The pass rush is weak and I’m not sure the addition of JJ Watt will help much because he’s past his prime and is injury prone. You need at least a halfway decent defense to even compete in this division because the Rams, 49ers, and Seahawks can all score at will and will be tough to keep up with.


AFC West

Kansas City Chiefs (12-5)

There really isn’t anything negative to say about the Chiefs coming into this season because they’re basically the same team that they have been and I expect them to continue to dominate. The usual suspects are back on offense ready to run all over the league. They did make some changes with the offensive line, which should make a difference in helping to keep Mahomes healthy. They also, get their Clyde Edwards-Helaire back healthy which gives them an added layer on an already high powered offense. The defense is questionable, but I think they will be good enough to keep the Chiefs at the top of their division. I really don’t expect much less from the Chiefs then what they’ve already been doing the last couple of seasons.


Los Angeles Chargers (10-7)

The Chargers are my surprise pick of the season. I think they are really going to dominate the league this season on both sides of the ball. Justin Herbert is coming off of a phenomenal rookie season and I expect him to build off of that and take his game to another level this season. He has a solid offensive line in front of him, a solid ground game behind him, and some really good receivers to get the ball to. The defense ain’t nothing to sleep on either. Joey Bosa is a beast and is the engine that runs this defense. They did lose some depth at the linebacker position, but they did gain some depth in the secondary, which may balance things out. I expect the Chargers to have a high powered and efficient offense, which is what they need to keep up with their division opponents, the Chiefs. They may not win the Super Bowl this year, but they are definitely going to make some noise and be a problem for every opponent they face this season.


Las Vegas Raiders (8-9) 

So far, the new John Gruden era has been a complete and utter failure! This guy is the highest paid coach in the league, by the way, and the Raiders haven’t even been a legitimate contender for their own division let alone a legitimate contender in the league. This year’s team looks pretty unimpressive coming into the season. Derrick Carr has been mostly mediocre for his entire career. He had one great half of a season like four years ago and then broke his leg and has been suck city ever since! They do have an awesome running back, Josh Jacobs, who has quietly taken he league by storm and is basically the only bright spot on this offense. The defensive roster is literally the “nobody squad”. There isn’t one stand out player on the defense and that’s not a good thing when you have to face Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert twice a year. It’s going to be another mediocre year for the Raiders, and maybe John Gruden will finally figure out he needs to retire and get back in the booth announcing games where he belongs because the game of football looks like it has passed him by.


Denver Broncos (5-12)

The Broncos feel like they have been rebuilding their team ever since Peyton Manning retired and that happened five years ago. They have yet to find even a halfway decent quarterback and have been playing the round robin of quarterbacks and this year the wheel lands on Teddy Bridgewater! He’s actually not a horrible quarterback, but he’s not that great either. He can make some plays and keep you in the game, but he doesn’t have a lot of options at the receiver position to get the ball to. The defense has been aging as well, Vonn Miller can’t seem to stay healthy and he is the heart of their defense. I’m really not expecting much from the Broncos this year.

2021 NFL Season Predictions - AFC & NFC South


2021 NFL Season Predictions

NFC South

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-4)

Well, if you’re a Tom Brady hater, then I imagine this season is going to be upsetting to you because the Buccaneers have brought back all of the important players from last season and this team looks like it’s ready to go for another Super Bowl run! First, they are in a horrible division that has lost a step now that Drew Brees retired. So, they should have no problems when it comes to the division opponents, but beyond their own division I think the Bucs are going to dominate this season. Last year they were still finding their way at the beginning of the season and managed to work it out in the end and win a Super Bowl. This season, they look locked in and judging from the preseason the few times the starters were on the field they looked really good. The defense is the back bone of this team and they will be a problem for every offense they face this season. They have the best pass rush in the league and that leaves no time for even the best quarterbacks to make a play. So, if you were hoping to see Tom Brady fall off this year, I don’t think you’re going to get that, we may actually see him win Super Bowl #8!


Carolina Panthers (9-8)

The Panthers made some really nice moves this offseason starting with trading for Sam Darnold. I still have plenty of questions about Darnold as a quarterback, but he also wasn’t given much of a chance to succeed while as a New York Jet from day one. Now that he is with the Panthers he has arguably one of the best running backs in the league behind him, a solid offensive line in front of him and a couple of really good receivers so, if he can’t work with that, then he’s not that good. The defensive side of the ball is where I think the Panthers need some help. At this point no one on the roster on defense is familiar to me which may not be a bad thing, it just means there is a lot of mystery with this defense and I don’t know what to expect from them. The offense will give the Panthers a lift and they should be a competitive team, but they still have some work to do and this should be a solid season for them to build off of and become a better team in the future.


Atlanta Falcons (6-11)


The only reason why I’m giving the Falcons 6 possible wins is because they have a pretty decent offense that may be able to get them a few wins, but overall this team sucks! The only thing they have been known for over the years is choking really bad and now they aren’t even going to have many chances to do that this season because I have a feeling they will rarely be ahead of any opponent this season! It’s gonna be a long season for the Falcons!


New Orleans Saints (5-12)

This is going to be the first time in about 10 years that the Saints have absolutely no identity because we have no idea what to expect from them with no Drew Brees. Jameis Winston is a garbage can quarterback and I don’t believe he will do anything to help this team other than throw a bunch of interceptions since that’s kind of his thing. The drama with their star wide receiver Michael Thomas doesn’t help either and drama aside, the dude is recovering from offseason surgery and won’t even be available for at least the first month of the season, this in turn will put a shit ton of pressure on Alvin Kamara to carry the offense. He is one of the best backs in the league, but I don’t know if I see him being able to carry the load if he has no help in the passing game. The defense has started to fall off as well and they didn’t do much to improve the defense during the offseason. I hope Saints fans enjoyed their run over the past decade because I don’t see much winning coming from this season.


AFC South 

Tennessee Titans (10-7)

The Titans offense is stacked with some of the top talent in the league starting with the running back, Derrick Henry. This dude has dominated on the ground the past couple of seasons and really has made a name for himself as one of the best backs in the league. He does benefit from a great offensive line, but his talent is legit. The Titans also got Ryan Tannehill a new weapon by trading for Julio Jones this offseason. Now, he has AJ Brown and Julio Jones, two receivers who can’t keep their hands off the ball, and once they have it, they are gone. The only weakness I believe the Titans have will be on defense. The pass rush is weak and the secondary has been known to give up a big play or two. The positive for the Titans is they are in a really weak division and I really don’t think they will have any problems with the division opponents, which will give them some help to get into the postseason. 


Indianapolis Colts (9-8) 

The Colts have a lot of things going on for them on the positive side, but unfortunately for them their main issue has been the quarterback position. They traded for Carson Wentz, which may end up being a good move, but I’m not quite sure I’m sold on him yet. He really fell off last year due to a lack of confidence and he has been an injury prone quarterback since he entered the league, and he already had to have surgery on his foot last month. Not a good way to start off with your new team. He does have a solid offense with a good offensive line, a great running game and some solid wide receivers, Wentz has plenty of help if he stays healthy. The defense is also one of the best in the league. The Colts pass rush has been unstoppable over the last couple of seasons and I expect that to continue into this season. The Colts could make some waves this season if Carson Wentz isn’t a bust, but until he proves to me that he can play an entire season without falling off, I can’t trust the dude to carry a team to the playoffs.


Jacksonville Jaguars (4-13)

I hope the Jaguars enjoyed the draft because that was their only bright spot going into this season. Now shit is going to get real and we are about to see a really awful team in Jacksonville! Trevor Lawrence is a good start, but this team has a LONG way to go! I’m expecting another top spot in the draft for Jacksonville next year!


Houston Texans (1-16) 

The Texans are going to be the absolute worst team in the league this year! Even if DeShaun Watson wasn’t having all the legal issues this offseason, this team was still going to be awful! There isn’t one positive thing to say about this shitty ass team! I think I’m being generous by giving them the one win this season!
