Apart from the regular trades and updates, there are predictions about the top NFL Division Champs for the upcoming season. Bettors will soon be able to place their bets on their favorite teams once the odds are available online.
AFC East Division
The AFC East Division has always been entertaining and challenging with some of the top teams in the league. Buffalo Bills topped the AFC East followed by Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and New York Jets in the 2020 season. Based on their performance, the Bills have been one of those favorite teams last year. The AFC North and West Division is coming in behind the AFC East in terms of ranking. The Seattle Seahawks are one of those favorite teams from the NFC West. For the upcoming season, expect the Bills to make a Super Bowl appearance with some of the top players on their squad.
Talking about the top players in the league, a list of top linebackers are on some of the NFC East teams. The Washington Football Team ranked second in 2020, but they lacked powerful linebackers. The good news is that Washington is making some new changes that are to benefit their entire team. Jamin Davis will take to the field this season alongside Jon Bostic and Cole Holcomb. This new addition will make Washington have one of the best defensive units and top linebackers on their squad.
Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants
Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are some of the other teams that are believed to hold some of the top linebackers. The Eagles had trouble with their offensive and defensive end back in 2020, but they have Alex Singleton and T.J. Edwards who are the bright spots. Shaun Bradley and Eric Wilson are also expected to add to their squad. The New York Giants were not too strong with their linebackers last year. However, the Giants will have Reggie Ragland or Tae Crowder alongside Martinez.
Apart from these teams, the Dallas Cowboys are expected to have the best linebacker on their squad. The Cowboys chose Micah Parson as their first-round pick for their upcoming season. Parson is one of those top defensive players that will contribute to the Cowboys squad. With Jamin Davis on the list for Washington, the AFC and NFC East teams are all set to enter this exciting season. The NFL Season Win Totals will soon be up and running as the regular season kicks off in less than two months.
