Predicting every game of the 2021 NFL Playoffs, including Super Bowl 55.

Phew. 2020 is in the rearview mirror, and the 2021 NFL Playoffs have arrived. It’s been a crazy last few months as we’ve watched the landscape of the league change and shift, and now 14 teams enter the postseason with the hope of taking home a Lombardi Trophy.

So what should we be expecting between now and Super Bowl 55? It’s anyone’s guess, but I’m going to do my best to predict what the future holds.

As in years passed, my playoff predictions from last year weren’t exactly on the money. And yet, while many of my picks didn’t go as expected, I did ultimately predict that the Kansas City Chiefs would win the Super Bowl. I also predicted that they’d beat the New Orleans Saints when they got there, but whatever. The only thing that matters is the end result, right?

My mishaps aside, anything can happen during the 2021 NFL Playoffs. The 2020 season was already a rollercoaster ride right out of mad man’s mind, with supposed contenders tumbling while projected pushovers turned into legitimate threats. The postseason brings out the best in players, so your ideal approach is to expect the unexpected.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at my predictions for the entire 2021 NFL Playoffs.
