NFL 2020/21 Season
When it comes to American Football, every one wants to play in the National Football League (NFL). This is the top American Football League in the world and all roads lead to the Super Bowl, one of the most watched sporting events in the world.
The NFL is split into two conferences, namely the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). Each conference has 16 teams and they play in four divisions - North, South, East and West). Teams battle it out to qualify for the play-offs with the eventual winner of each conference facing each other in the Super Bowl.
Each of the teams play 16 divisional matches. They will play the other three teams in their division twice (home and away) and also have ten matches against other conference sides. The 2020/21 season begins on September 10 when the reigning champions, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans. Usually there are 12 teams that take part in the play-offs, this season it will be 14 with a third wild card qualifier added in each conference. The Super Bowl is scheduled to take place on February 7, 2021 in Tampa, Florida.
As mentioned, it is the Kansas City Chiefs who are the defending champions. They won the Super Bowl this year, beating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. That was their first Super Bowl victory since 1970. Recent years have been dominated by the New England Patriots who won three times in five years before the Chiefs took their crown.
If Kansas are the team that wins the Super Bowl in February 2021, they will become only the eighth franchise to win two consecutive Super Bowl matches. The last time this feat was achieved was in 205 when the New England Patriots retained their title. The other sides to have won two in a row are: Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers (the only team to have done it twice), San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos.
The Baltimore Ravens had the best regular season record last year winning 14 out of 16 matches. Despite that dominance, the Ravens lost to the Tennessee Titans in their first play-off match, ending their title hopes.
Last season was not a good one for Washington. They lost more regular season games than any other side, being beaten in 13 out of their 16 matches. It was also the last season in which they will use the Redskins name.
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers were the only two teams that won all the six matches played against other sides in their division.
Only the Detroit Lions lost all six of their matches against the other teams in their division.
NFL 2020-2021 favorites
The Baltimore Ravens went into the play-offs last season as the favourites to win the Super Bowl. However, it was not to be and they lost to the Tennessee Titans in a massive shock. They will look to not make that mistake again this season and are the current favourites to make amends. Patrick Mahomes will hope for another stellar season and lead the Chiefs to a second straight win. A lot of interest will be shown on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have signed Tom Brady, could the legendary quarterback make it to another Super Bowl, one that would be held at his new home ground.
