The NFL season is sneaking up on us, so it’s time to come up with some arbitrary rankings! Well, I’d like to believe they are informed by research and NFL knowledge, but by the end of the 2021 season they very well may look arbitrary.
We’re counting down the top 32 teams as we close in on the July 27th start to training camp. You can see where we are on our list and click on through to our team analysis just below here.
Who will be No. 1? It’s hard to argue against the Kansas City Chiefs or Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Can the Buffalo Bills usurp either or both this season? Will the Packers be dead in the water if Aaron Rodgers doesn’t show up? Will the Browns take another step this season? Will rookie quarterbacks pull the Jaguars and Jets out of the NFL basement? Will Matthew Stafford get the Rams over the hump? Does Trey Lance take the league by storm under the tutelage of Kyle Shanahan? Does Carson Wentz have anything left to give the Colts?
So many questions that we just won’t know the answers to until we get deep into the season, but the fun is in trying to answer them before the fact. Check back as we countdown to the No. 1 team just before training camp gets under way.
