Bucs Chiefs Or Will Someone Else Sit Atop Our NFL Power Rankings?

Things are starting to heat up in the NFL now as we head towards those first pre-season games in August. With that in mind, we are going to take you through our current NFL Power Rankings based on the teams performances last season, their moves in the draft and Free Agency, together with their schedule for the season ahead.

Odds shown are for the team to win the Super Bowl and are provided by BetRivers PA.

NFL Power Rankings – June 2021

  1. Kansas City Chiefs – +500

A reworking of their offensive line seems to offer Patrick Mahomes even more protection. That’s not what teams chasing the Chiefs and their power offense wanted to hear.

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – +650

Re-signing all their key players from last season and adding Joe Tryon to rest their linebackers when required was a very smart move. They’ll be in the mix once again.

  1. Los Angeles Rams – +1300

Matt Stafford gives the Rams an opportunity to win now. Aaron Donald will lead the defense and this looks like being one of the best balanced Rams team in many a year.

  1. Buffalo Bills – +1200

The Bills were very strong last season but surprisingly didn’t draft a corner until the sixth round. That could be an error, but the Bills will still be a major factor in the AFC.

  1. Cleveland Browns – +1600

With Myles Garrett fully fit and some fantastic draft picks this summer, the Browns are going to be a real contender in a tough AFC North this season. Expect them to improve again this year, especially if OBJ can stay healthy.

  1. Baltimore Ravens – +1400

The run-heavy Ravens have improved their passing options, but it will likely me Lamar Jackson’s legs and the protection he receives from their new draft picks that will determine the Raven’s success or failure this season.

  1. Tennessee Titans – +2800

A busted first round pick last year didn’t help the Titans any, but a much smarter draft this year teamed with a trade for Julio Jones offers the Titans real hope they can be in the mix late in the playoffs.

  1. Green Bay Packers – +1600

One player, Aaron Rodgers, will define the Packers future. With Rodgers still at Lambeau, the Packers will be a threat. However if he sits out the season, or moves on, then the Packers drop like a stone in these rankings.

  1. Seattle Seahawks – +2500

Russell Wilson seems to have made his peace in Seattle and that’s good news for Seahawks fans as that means they will likely be the Rams closest competitors in their division once again.

  1. San Francisco 49ers – +1400

The ‘Niners had a solid draft but I am not convinced that they have made the big steps that most experts tend to feel they have. In a tough division, I think the 49ers, while talented, could struggle.

  1. Indianapolis Colts – +2500

Despite couple of key losses the Colts should be very competitive again with that solid defense. Jared Goff will need to shine though if they are to challenge the revamped Titans in the AFC South.

  1. Arizona Cardinals – +4000

Signing JJ Watt gives the Cardinals arguably the best DE pairing in the league, add to that a solid offense and the Cardinals should be in the mix for the playoffs again this season.

  1. Miami Dolphins – +3000

The Dolphins upward trajectory in recent seasons should continue again this year. Jaylen Waddle gives Tua Tagovailoa a real offensive weapon. This team is going to improve again this year.

  1. Los Angeles Chargers – +3300

Justin Herbert needed protection and the Chargers got him it in the draft and free agency. Add to that Jared Cook as a tight end, and Herbert now has the tools he needs to move the Chargers into contention for the playoffs.

  1. Dallas Cowboys – +2500

Getting Dak Prescott signed back up was the Cowboys main aim and they achieved that this off-season. Adding three safeties in free agency also helps with an area of the team that has needed support.

  1. Minnesota Vikings – +4000

Signing Christian Darrisaw protects Kirk Cousins blind side, while Wyatt Davis should offer him pass protection. If Cousins can get hot, then the Vikings could be a real prospect for the playoffs once again.

  1. New England Patriots – +3300

It’s been a big rebuild for the Patriots in the off season but the fact remains that they don’t have Tom Brady under center and without him, the Patriots are putting sticking plasters over a gaping wound.

  1. Washington Football Team – +5000

Chase Young and the Washington defense will be one of the best in football again, it’s up to Ryan Fitzpatrick to have another season of FitzMagic to push Washington into the post-season.

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers – +4000

An ageing team that made an upgrade at running back, but in a pass heavy offense. Too many things don’t stack up for the Steelers and key departures have impacted key areas of the team.

  1. New York Giants – +6600

Daniel Jones now has plenty of talent around him on the offense to step up and Saquon Barkley coming back offers the Giants a chance to improve a lot on last season’s poor showing.

  1. Las Vegas Raiders – +7000

The Raiders hierarchy kept faith with Derek Carr and worked hard to revamp a defense that failed to shine last season. They are in a tough division but John Gruden’s team will be tough to beat.

  1. New Orleans Saints – +2800

The post-Drew Brees era begins in New Orleans but I think this is going to be a very difficult season for Saints fans, despite their very talented offense. Brees’ absence will be keenly felt.

  1. Atlanta Falcons – +6000

With a new head coach, but missing WR ace Julio Jones, the Falcons could find things tougher this season. However, Kyle Pitts should prove to be a stellar option at Tight End.

  1. Chicago Bears – +5000

Allen Robinson II will be thrilled if Justin Fields can become the Bears starter quickly. If he does then the Bears could well move further up the rankings as Fields is a big QB upgrade.

  1. Denver Broncos – +2500

The Bronco’s defense will be even better this season, but they still do not have a QB of note and without that, this offense is going to struggle to move the ball.

  1. Carolina Panthers – +7000

The Panthers entire offense has been built around new QB Sam Darnold. Can he succeed in Carolina with the faith shown in him? It will be interesting to find out.

  1. New York Jets – +10000

Snagging Zach Wilson after trading Sam Darnold was a smart move and the Jets have made some clever moves in free agency. They’ll be a better, but Wilson will need a year or two to settle in fully.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles – +7000

The Eagles gave a big vote of confidence to QB Jalen Hurts, reuniting him with two former Alabama stars in DeVonta Smith and Landon Dickerson, but there were bigger issues to address in Philly.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals – +10000

Burrows to Chase offers Bengals fans some hope for better things, but there are still to many weaknesses in this team, in a very tough division, for them to improve a great deal.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars – +8000

The Jags will improve this season, but Urban Meyer has his work cut out. Trevor Lawrence will make this team better, but it is going to take a lot longer than one year to address all the issues.

  1. Detroit Lions – +15000

The Lions traded away Matt Stafford to the Rams to herald the start of a new era in Detroit, but so far the moves they’ve made suggest they are a long way off being a contender.

  1. Houston Texans – +17500

The car crash from the Bill O’Brien era continues and with questions over DeShaun Watson’s future and a team weakening by the day. It’s going to be a long season for Texans fans.
