Are you ready for some football?

By the time read this, the 2021 NFL season may have already kicked off – the first game of this year’s slate is scheduled for September 9, when the reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play host to the Dallas Cowboys.

For the second year in a row, the NFL season will play out under the long shadow cast by the pandemic; it remains to be seen how the continuing evolution of that nationwide health concern will impact the schedule. Despite the NFL’s robust demands with regard to vaccination and other safety protocols, it seems likely that the game on the field will be impacted. How often and how thoroughly? Well, that remains to be seen.

With all of this uncertainty, it would seem to be even more foolish than usual to attempt to predict the outcome of the 2021 NFL regular season. And yet … here we are.

I will be making my usual predictions regarding how I believe the season will play out. And as usual, I anticipate being wildly off-base with a significant percentage of these predictions. I have a long and storied history of middling picks, after all – why expect anything different this time around? There’s even an extra regular season game, adding yet another little bit of possible inaccuracy to my personal equation.

And so, here you have it, friends – my monkey-dart-throwing attempt at prognostication. Ladies and gentlemen, your sure-to-be-inaccurate 2021 Maine Edge NFL Season Preview.
