Brad’s 2021 NFL Preview: Disappointment Picks

Now that I have thoroughly analyzed the hypothetical college football season, I have decided to engage in a similar analysis for the National Football League. Last season, I published my first set of NFL predictions on my blog, and given the popularity those articles garnered, I thought it would be worth doing them again.. Much like my college preview, I have gone through and analyzed every NFL team’s regular season and postseason, as well as selected my disappointment and surprise teams and upsets to watch out for.

Without further ado, here are the teams I am predicting to disappoint this season. These teams are ordered in the relative disparity between my picks and the experts average while also taking into account the significance of each pick.
