2021 SI Fan Nation Team Publisher Predictions

The Bills and the Bays (Tampa and Green) are heavy favorites along with the Kansas City Chiefs to reach and win the Super Bowl.

Publish date:

Even after making the playoffs in two of the previous three years, the Buffalo Bills caught just about everyone by surprise in 2020, winning 13 regular-season games behind breakout seasons from quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

They followed that up with two home playoff wins before their season ended in the AFC Championship Game at Kansas City.

Obviously the Bills won't be sneaking up on anyone anymore, which is why a survey of 28 SI Fan Nation team publishers reveals them to be a popular choice to at least advance to the Super Bowl.

Also no surprise: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers, who met in last season's NFC Championship Game, are heavy favorites to make it that far again.

So without further ado, here are the Bills Central predictions, followed by the SI Fan Nation consensus and each of the 27 other individual predictions, courtesy of an ambitious compilation provided by Alain Poupart of All Dolphins.
