It’s officially game week in the NFL.
The 2021 National Football League regular season is scheduled to begin in a couple of days. The 2021 season will kick off on Thursday night, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys. The game pits the reigning Super Bowl champions against America’s Team.
Both the Buccaneers and the Cowboys enter the 2021 season with Super Bowl hopes. However, according to longtime NFL insider Peter King, neither team will be making it to the final game of the season.
King released his official Super Bowl prediction in his Football Morning In America column on Monday morning.
I’m picking a Rams-Bills Super Bowl. Obvious rejoinder: What’s wrong with Kansas City and Tampa Bay? You had them ranked 1-2 in the spring. The answer is, Nothing. I really liked the Bills and Rams when I went to their camps. I think it’s Buffalo’s breakthrough year, and I think Matthew Stafford gives the Rams the kind of offensive confidence and explosiveness they haven’t had since we all thought Jared Goff was The Answer, in early 2018.
Rams vs. Bills would be pretty fun.
Los Angeles heads into the 2021 season with sky-high expectations following the trade for Matthew Stafford. Buffalo, meanwhile, continues to build on its strong foundation, led by quarterback Josh Allen.
Thursday night can’t get here soon enough.
