Its been quite a year so far but despite the current pandemic it looks like we will have the NFL to keep us entertained and so as is tradition its time to make those predictions and an interesting one it is set to be.

We have Tom Brady playing for a new team – in a warm stadium and a franchise with no name given that Washington has finally bowed to pressure and removed their old one. There will also be seven teams from each conference in the postseason and only one team in each will now avoid the perils of the Wild Card Round – so those late-season games will have a touch of extra spice for some.

It will also be largely devoid of fans while the COVID epidemic continues and it will be interesting to see how some teams who feed off their rampant fan base adjusts. Lots of imponderables on the road to hoisting this years Lombardi Trophy.

Anyway here is how we see the season panning out including who we think will be this year’s champions.
