It still appears as though the 2020 season will be played and that means that one of the league’s 32 teams is going to win Super Bowl LV. Leading the list of favorites at this point is the returning Lombardi Trophy winners, the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Favorites to Win Super Bowl 2021
So who are the favorites to win Super Bowl 2021?.
As long as Patrick Mahomes is at quarterback in Kansas City, the Chiefs will continue to be the favorite. After winning an MVP in 2018, his numbers dropped a little in 2019. He also missed two games with an injury, but he led the Chiefs to the franchise’s first Super Bowl win in 50 years. He earned the Super Bowl MVP in the process.
The Chiefs defense is improved and Mahomes should have WR Tyreek Hill for a full season. Hill missed four games, but TE Travis Kelce more than made up for his absence leading the team with 97 receptions for 1,229 yards and five touchdowns.
Kansas City drafted RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire with their first pick. The former LSU star will fit nicely into the offense as the Chiefs picked him because of his abilities as a pass catcher. The Chiefs shouldn’t have much trouble winning a fifth straight AFC West title.
Super Bowl 2021 – The Competition
In the AFC, the one team that could thwart the Chiefs consecutive Super Bowl bid is Baltimore. Fans could see a preview of the AFC championship in Week 3 when Kansas City travels to Baltimore on a Monday night.
The Ravens return the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in QB Lamar Jackson, who established a new league record for rushing yards in a season with 1,206. Jackson also proved to be a capable passer completing over 66 percent of his passes for 3,127 yards and 36 touchdowns.
Remember, it was the Ravens offense that led the league in scoring averaging 33 points per game. Jackson and RB Mark Ingram II (1,018) each rushed for over 1,000 yards and the Baltimore offense adds former Ohio State star J.K. Dobbins to the mix. Dobbins was the Ravens second-round draft pick.
With a top-10 defense, Baltimore won an NFL-high 14 games in 2019. With that unit largely intact and future starter Patrick Queen – the team’s first-round draft pick – at linebacker, there is reason to believe the Ravens could not only win a third straight AFC North title, but they could win a Super Bowl title.
Don’t You Forget About Me
Simple minds might forget the Super Bowl runner-up, San Francisco. That would be a mistake. The 49ers have built one of the league’s best defenses. San Francisco ranked first against the pass, second in total defense and eighth in total defense giving up just 19.4 points per game.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan returns one of the more formidable pass rushes in the league with defensive ends Nick Bosa (9.0) and Arik Armstead (10.0), who combined for 19 sacks. Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner added 7.5 and DE Dee Ford had 6.5 for a 49ers defense that was fifth in the league with 48 sacks.
Shanahan and GM John Lynch added DT Javon Kinlaw in the first round of the draft. The offense gets a boost from former Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk. The 49ers will be right in the thick of the Super Bowl race again in 2020.
The same can be said for New Orleans, which lost a heartbreaker to Minnesota 26-20 in overtime in the Wild Card playoffs. The Saints won the NFC South for the third consecutive season and are poised for a fourth title in 2020.
Returning for his 20th NFL season is QB Drew Brees. The veteran missed five games last season with a thumb injury. It was the first time he missed games since he was not a starter in his rookie season in San Diego. Brees holds a number of NFL records including career passing yards (77,416) and career touchdown passes (547).
With the competition in the division – including Tom Brady in Tampa Bay – it’s hard to see somebody beating out New Orleans. Brees is nearing the end of his career and desperately wants to win one more Super Bowl. This could be the year.
Super Bowl 2021 – The Longshots
The defense should still be outstanding and the schedule is perfect for another playoff run. The Patriots crossover with the AFC West and the NFC South plus New England will play the Jets and Dolphins twice each.
In the NFC, the team that will get overlooked is Green Bay. The Packers won 13 games last year. Aaron Rodgers is still at quarterback and the Green Bay defense gets better every season. The Packers got Rodgers some weapons in RB A.J. Dillon and TE Josiah Deguara in the draft.
Green Bay also received a gift from the schedule gods with a crossover with that same NFC South and the AFC South, two of the league’s weaker divisions.
