5 Teams that won’t return to the NFL playoffs in 2021

These teams will not return to the playoffs this year!

1) Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers went from being the undefeated front-runner two/thirds of the way through the season to limping into the playoffs after losing to Bengals and Browns at the end of the season. The loss to the Bengals had to be the most embarrassing because it wasn’t the Joe Burrow-led Bengals it was the Ryan Finley-led Bengals! The offense is the big concern as the offensive line has gone over the last four years from being one of the best to a bottom half of the league unit. The defense will still be good but the offense consists of an Old Quarterback with diminishing arm strength and mobility and a group of inconsistent wide receivers. Najee Harris would have been a great pick if they didn’t need lineman so badly. The coaching and defense will carry them to 6-8 wins but they will not be a factor come playoff time.

2) Chicago Bears

Ok, I really think the bears are making the right moves for the future of the franchise. Justin Fields is not Dwayne Haskins and may end up being the Quarterback the Bears have been looking for since the retirement of Sammy Baugh. The addition of Teven Jenkins will be huge also and the talk has been the Bears have to make the playoffs to save Pace and Nagy’s job, but if Fields starts games this year and does well I think they will get another shot.

3) Washington Football Team

Washington was lucky to be in maybe the worst division in NFL history last season. The East will still suck this year but the Cowboys have potential and the Giants’ offense looks loaded. When you really get right down to it, do you really think Ryan Fitzpatrick will be consistent enough for a whole season and win 9 or 10 games, the easy answer to that is of course not.

4) New Orleans Saints

This is simple, Drew Brees is gone and I think Carolina and Atlanta will improve, and the buccaneers look to be the best team in the NFL. The Saints roster is still good but they do NOT have a quarterback no matter how much Sean Payton thinks they do.

5) Seattle Seahawks

It’s been a while since the Seahawks were a Super Bowl threat. Russell Wilson is why they can be expected to win 9-10 games almost every season, but with what I think will be one of the tougher divisions in the NFL and the rest of the NFC getting stronger I think Seattle misses out with 9-10 wins.
