Super Bowl 56 odds, best bets: Chiefs, Buccaneers clear favorites entering 2021 NFL season

Before the 2020 NFL season, the Chiefs were the favorites to win the Super Bowl. About a year later, Andy Reid's team is once again the favorite to win it all. Although they lost to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl 55, the Chiefs have made some improvements to their team during the 2021 offseason. Plus, they have Patrick Mahomes, and punters are always willing to trust the elite quarterbacks of the NFL. That's part of the reason Tom Brady and the Bucs aren't far behind. Beyond those two, there are plenty of family teams in the top 10. Neither team has made the kind of leap the Buccaneers made last season after they signed Brady. Among the 13 favorites to win the Super Bowl, only the 49ers and Cowboys failed to make the playoffs last year. And both teams dealt with many injuries during ...

Mac Jones vs. Cam Newton: Breaking up the Patriots’ QB battle at the end of the preseason

Mac Jones had a shot in front of him in the final week of preseason. Even Bill Belichick admitted it. After Cam Newton had a "misunderstanding" related to NFL COVID policy that caused him to miss five days of practice, Jones took most of the Patriots' first-team replays. By all accounts, the rookie was good. As New England's third and final preseason game approached, questions were raised about whether he would be able to do enough to unseat Newton as the team's suspected starting quarterback.Jones' play in a 22-20 win over the Giants Sunday, combined with Newton's lackluster exit, may have given the Patriots something to think about.

The Jets, Eagles and 6 other NFL teams with no chance of winning Super Bowl 56

We said it last year, and we'll say it again in 2021: Your favorite NFL team probably sucks. "Sucks" can hit a slightly wide swath. You're probably using words like "rebuild," "re-equip," and "potential" as comforting phrases to help you get through another brutal, ineffective, and wasted season as an NFL fan. "Next year" has been "next year" for the past 10 years. It's okay. Happens. After all, rebellions are built on hope. But bridges, buildings, and other forms of infrastructure are not built on hope. They are built with steel and other tangible things that really matter and can withstand. Things you can touch, feel and shape. So you can wait as long as you want, but these teams have absolutely no chance of winning Super Bowl 56. NFL POWER RATINGS: (Fake images) https:...
