From the division winners to all of the major awards, NewArena shares its predictions for the entire 2021 NFL season:
AFC West Winner — Kansas City Chiefs
Andy Reid and the Chiefs will be gunning for a sixth-straight division title in 2021. Six games separated KC and the second-place Las Vegas Raiders last year — the largest margin of victory for any division winner. The Chiefs are 20-1 in their last 21 regular season games that Patrick Mahomes has started under center. Scoring points will never be a problem for this high-powered group. Especially now that the offensive line has been revamped with the addition of former Baltimore Raven tackle Orlando Brown Jr.
While the gap between KC and the other three teams remains significant, Denver, Vegas, and LA are making strides to compete with the Chiefs. Denver’s defense looks to be one of the most formidable units in the league with an especially stacked secondary. The Raiders have a potential top-10 offense and were the last team to beat Mahomes in the regular season (and nearly did it twice last year). And then there’s the Chargers, who could make some serious noise with the soon-to-be superstar QB Justin Herbert.
