NFL football is back folks. Following an exciting 2018/19 campaign and a dreary offseason fans couldn’t wait to see the back of, the league will be back in full swing starting this week, presenting a great many questions that will be answered by the time the last ball is thrown in February.
So before things get too serious, we’re here with a few predictions for the 2019/20 season.
We’re heading into the most important prediction right away: who wins Super Bowl 54. The New England Patriots are the current champions and are among the favorites to do so again next year. The seemingly indestructible Tom Brady will still be co-ordinating things at quarterback and there’s always a shot when he’s around. But the NFL looks to be Patrick Mahomes’ for the taking and the Kansas City Chiefs might just win it all. In fact, we say they will.
The Chiefs ran the Pats pretty close for the AFC Championship last season and they probably could have gone through had it not been for a controversial rule that did not allow Mahomes to get the ball in overtime. They’re very likely to go all the way this time around but there’s a lot of football to be played, so we’ll see how right this is by the end.
Mahomes is also a great shout for MVP after winning the accolade last season. The talented QB became only the second player to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in a single season. Peyton Manning was the only player to do so before the Chiefs star came around and he’s projected to have yet another successful season for the team.
Mahomes is looking like the sure pick for both MVP and offensive player of the year and could snatch both awards even if his numbers dip.
Meanwhile, Myles Garret looks like a solid prediction for Defensive Player of the Year. The Cleveland Browns star has built a reputation as the most dangerous 4-3 end in the league and is likely to show even more this season. Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams is also in the conversation here and should be in the running for the accolade as long as he remains healthy.
So who’s going to be the Coach of the Year? There are plenty of names worthy of the honor. Cleveland’s Freddie kitchens, Green Bay’s Matt LaFleur and the Chiefs’ Andy Reid are all among the favorite. Of course, Patriots coach Bill Belichick should never be counted out.
Kitchens, though, seems like the one who will steal ahead in the race as there’s plenty of talent on Cleveland and he’s one of the best motivators around.
According to the Bookies, though, the Pats are the outright favorites for the Super Bowl and you find information and tips regarding NFL odds at CanadianSportsBetting.
