Top 10 Teams Most Likely to Win the NFC Championship in 2020-21The NFC unlike the AFC is a bit more stacked with talent. Several teams have a shot while there’s a few with almost no chance. I expect this conference to be a fistfight throughout the season. It’ll be fun to watch for sure. Here’s who’s most likely to win the NFC.
The Top Ten
This is my pick to repeat as NFC Champions
San Francisco has everything to win the Super Bowl last year they came up just short but with an efficient run game like that and a dangerous defense they should be a strong force again. Just don’t do what the Rams did and you’ll be fine. This division should be fun to watch but I expect a division title for the Niners. With that core it’s almost certain they’ll win a Super Bowl at some point
The Saints are in a critical year. Drew Brees is elite but can’t bail them out forever. The Saints have the talent to win the Super Bowl but they keep self destructing at the worst times possible. They will have some competition in their division now but with guys like Michael Thomas they will be dangerous yet again.
They’ll be fine that is until they inevitably lose to the Vikings in the playoffs again.
The Cowboys are in a nice spot right now. They had a great draft and got everyone back Dak Zeke Amari Cooper and now CeeDee Lamb. This is a team that can make some noise. Jason Garrett was finally axed for Mike McCarthy we’ll see how that goes. This will be an interesting year for them. Failure to make the playoffs this time is inexcusable especially with a cakewalk division
The best team in the NFL
Watch them go 8-8
They would need Dalvin Cook Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson to all step up big time
The Vikings have had a really nice offseason I think they could definitely make some noise this season as a team that wins the division. If they compete with everyone there’s potential here. Kirk Cousins is a solid QB and Dalvin Cook is an electrifying weapon on offense. Don’t take them lightly
I can see where everyone is coming from with the "they didn't get better" thing, however, I still think they got better on certain parts of the roster. They have a top ten running back group in the NFL and Christian Kirksey as an upgrade over Blake Martinez when healthy. There are definitely questions around this team, like the lack of depth at defensive line and wide receiver. I personally think they're about the same as last season, with minor changes at right tackle and top inside linebacker, and considering they went 13-3 with a roster that hasn't had much turnover during the offseason, I think they are still contenders. Now obviously I'm biased because I'm a fan of the Packers, but I have confidence that they can finally break their NFC Championship Game losing streak, though the NFC as a whole looks difficult.
That draft does not convince me they will make the Super Bowl
Green Bay to me is a team that has a lot to prove especially after a questionable draft at best. Yeah they went 13-3 last year but couldn’t close anyone out. I think the Packers could still be good especially with Aaron Rodgers but they kinda gave him the short end of the stick in the draft giving him no real help and getting his potential replacement. They didn’t really get better at all. But they should still make the playoffs since they can win division games
Watch them go 8-8
Normally I’d say no chance they make it but now things are interesting Tom Brady and Gronk are in town and Bruce Arians is a good coach who knows how to use talent. Tampa has some nice pieces on offense like Mike Evans OJ Howard and Chris Goodwin they’re lining up with a shot to win the division I mean this could be the most relevant they’ve been since 2002. Potential and expectations are sky high
Russell Wilson will have to bail them out even though Jamal Adams will help
Seattle is a team you can’t count out however after awhile you reach a point where Russell Wilson can’t bail you out forever. They have some potential but they also have a stacked division to go up against. Their defense is going to only get weaker. Let me guess that Russell Wilson makes things interesting as a mediocre squad somehow has a fighting chance in the postseason
Yeah, keep sleeping on us. In 2019, this team somehow managed to finish with a winning record with a good portion of practice squad guys getting valuable playing time. Now everyone is healthy, they picked up some real WRs in the draft and in free agency, they have a legitimate #1 corner now in Big Play Slay, and they still have the best coach in the division. The Cowboys might have talent but they lack the mental toughness to go deep in the playoffs and Mike "Carried My Whole Mediocre Coaching Career By Aaron Rodgers' Greatness" McCarthy isn't going to change that. The sheer gall to rank the Cardinals and their Pac-12 level defense and their non-existent O-Line ahead of an experienced champion/annual playoff contender Eagles team is unbelievably laughable. I shouldn't be surprised. In fact, I'm glad that you are so dismissive. We always do our best work when people overlook us.
To me the Eagles are a team with potential as long as they stay healthy. Last year proved that even with injuries piling up they still managed to limp into the playoffs. Now they might not be as lucky. Here’s the thing about this season it all comes down to Carson Wentz. If he stays healthy they’re fine otherwise he’ll become a large liability almost the next Sam Bradford. They had a questionable draft with Jalen Hurts and Jalen Reagor as a receiver to answer the Cowboys getting their hands on CeeDee Lamb. We’ll see how that goes but if this team has told me anything over the past few years don’t ever count them out
Oh my Cowboys and Eagles fan getting into heated discussion get the popcorn out.
The Cardinals maybe got the steal of the century in Deandre Hopkins. They gave up next to nothing for him. He will pair nicely with Larry Fitzgerald and Kyler Murray. I mean I don’t think it’s enough to go anywhere yet but it’s a start. They’re going in the right direction at least so maybe there’s a chance here?
This is an odd long shot pick especially with the loaded NFC South. Atlanta might not do enough to stand out from the rest of the division. Matt Ryan is still a top 10 quarterback in the NFL so the Falcons have that going for them. Maybe if Julio Jones has a career year and Todd Gurley can use some type of sorcery to revive himself back to like 2017/18 form then there’s a chance but that’s a tall order and will be an uphill battle for the Falcons
Nope not with Trubisky
Jared Goff is to inconsistent
You mean the “Football Team” will be as uninspiring and dull as the name is
