As time gets closer and closer for the 2021 NFL season to get going, there’s no better time than right now to start looking into which teams are looking better and better as the top pick to be putting your money on a week in and week out once the action gets going. Either if you’re one of those fans that like having the latest Vegas NFL odds experts’ information before making your picks or one that’s all about starting early and studying your picks from early on, we got you covered.
Now, we could go with the obvious picks of the Chiefs and Buccaneers, for example, but no, no, let’s look into some other teams that could also come in very strong and surprise everyone given their total wins predictions. So, here are our picks for the three teams that all football fans should definitely consider as top picks for the upcoming 2021 NFL season.
What do you get when you mix a young coach who already knows what going all the way in the NFL is like, alongside a top-tier quarterback looking for redemption and two of the best all-around defenders in the league? Yes, you get the Los Angeles Rams. What coach Sean McVay has done after being hired as coach for the Rams has been mind-blowing. He took a lackluster team and turned them into a scary and good squad, a scary good squad. Just after two seasons under his tenure, the Rams made it back to the Super Bowl, yes, in a losing effort to the Patriots but still showing signs of what was to come.
McVay understood that if he wanted to be able to have his offense on par to his defensive unit, arguably one of the best in the NFL with DE Aaron Donald and CB Jalen Ramsey spearheading it, he needed to make some changes, so he shipped QB Jared Goff and a package of draft picks to Detroit in exchange for top tier QB Matthew Stafford. Stafford is looking for a team where he can showcase his true star-caliber qualities, and the Rams are looking for a QB to lead them in a title run, so it was a match made in football heaven.
With a defense that’s going to make all offenses shake in fear and an offense that will see an automatic upgrade, it’s no wonder why odds experts have the Rams sporting a win total of 10.5 and looking like they’ll cruise right by that mark in what could end up being their second Super Bowl run in the last for years. If you’re looking for an exciting pick to roll with, the Rams is a great choice.
Green Bay Packers
If Aaron Rodgers hadn’t decided to return, I think we can all be honest in accepting that they wouldn’t be on anyone’s list for top picks to go within the upcoming season. But now that the reigning league MVP and definite leader of the Packers are back for one more season at least, the Packers once again are looking as good as ever when thinking of teams to pick for the 2021 NFL season.
Having Rodgers, WR Davante Adams, and RB Aaron Jones leading the offense once again will automatically put Green Bay over in many of their matchups, and thinking about them surpassing last season’s 13-3 record might not even be out of the books. With a projected wins total of 10 as of right now, going with the Packers in what could easily be Aaron Rodgers last season in Wisconsin can end up bringing very good results back. If what you like is heroic-style storylines and epic performances, riding with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers might do you best.
If the 2020 season works as a marker for what’s in store for the Buffalo Bills and its oh-so-loyal fan base, then the upcoming 2021 season could perfectly well be the season where the Bills finally make it back to the Super Bowl. Last season the Bills were one touchdown away from making it to the title game in Tampa Bay, so it’s obvious that this season they will want to go for it all without any doubt or hesitation.
Buffalo is a team that is stacked in every single line of the game, from their coaching staff led by Sean McDermott to an offense led by future MVP QB Josh Allen and WR Steffon Diggs and a defense led by star CB Tre’Davious White and LBs Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano. All this, plus the weakened division they play in, the AFC East, of course, makes it understandable that their projected wins total is 11, one of the highest in the league and one that they will definitely surpass.
While before, picking the Bills would have sounded crazy, if there was ever a year to pick the Bills week in and week out, it’s 2021.
