FINALLY, the end of my daily (well, ALMOST daily) 2021 NFL previews by division. It’s only fitting that this end with arguably the NFL’s strongest division — I still am biased towards the AFC North, though. I’m freaking exhausted.
At any rate…
Predicted order of finish
- Los Angeles Rams (11-6)
- Seattle Seahawks (11-6)
- San Francisco 49ers (9-8)
- Arizona Cardinals (8-9)
I wouldn’t be shocked if three teams from this division make the playoffs. The Rams, Seahawks and 49ers are good enough — especially if the 49ers are healthy.
If the Cardinals were in another division, especially in the NFC East, they would be a playoff team as well. Sucks for Arizona fans, especially head coach Kliff Kingsbury. If the Cardinals fall below .500, he may not have a job after — or may be during — the season.
