2021 Season Predictions: Same AFC Championship, Different Result

Here we go...

The 2021 NFL season is upon us, and like everyone else, it's time to toss my hat in the ring on this year's predictions.

A new era in New England arises, a last ride in Pittsburgh is underway and the GOAT is looking to win another Super Bowl, all while Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and the rest of the league are trying to put their stamp on the NFL. What a year 2021 has in store.

While Tom Brady and the Buccaneers don't walk away Super Bowl champs this time around, they still get there. The Chiefs do not.
