With the 2021 NFL season almost upon us, it’s time for those all too early postseason predictions. Injuries and below expectations play will no doubt make a mess of these however we can always do a version two halfway through.

In the NFC two of the divisions look quite clear cut, with both Tampa & Green Bay likely winners, however, the NFC West looks really open with four potential playoff teams. Conversely, the NFC East looks to have four fairly equally matched but not very good teams. We think Washington’s defense might just carry them to the NFC East title.

The battle for the three wild cards could be intense though and at least one team will end up disappointed at missing out.

Until then here is how we see the playoffs panning out in the race to reach Super Bowl 56 which will be played at the SoFi Stadium in LA.
