NFL News: Detroit Entering Another Rebuild

The Patriots didn’t win, but Brady got another ring, putting the whole conversation about it, Bill or Brady, to bed.

Now, post-Super-Bowl LV, teams are already jockeying to be the next contender. Will the Buccaneers be back in the Super Bowl mix in 2021-2022? Will the Chiefs make an appearance in the big game for the third year straight?

We are not sure. But here’s what we do know.

Chiefs favored by 3 over Bucs in 2021 Super Bowl

NFL fans get a marquee matchup with the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. It’s the best quarterback in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes, against the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady.

The line opened at Kansas City -3.5 and now has settled to Kansas City -3. The over/under is set at 56.5.

This game can go in so many different directions. The Chiefs are a scoring machine, but they’ve stumbled at times early in games. The Bucs are also inconsistent, but Brady has played well in this offense as the year progressed.

That said, Brady had a tough second half versus the Packers last week and it was the defense plus some bad coaching by the Packers that saved the day for the Bucs. Still, it’s always tough to bet against Brady.

I don’t feel strongly about this one at all, but if I had to bet it, or I was in Vegas for some fun, I’d go with the Chiefs -3 and the over.

Tom Brady has challenging first start with Tampa Bay

We’re all excited about watching Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, but we have to keep several things in mind. First, he’s on a new team and he played week one without a preseason to get his timing down. Also, he’s 43 years old. So we all need to expect some drop-off in play. Some argue we’ve already been seeing this with Brady.

The results in week one were not particularly good, but judging Brady, the Bucs or any player or team after one week, particularly this year, is a big mistake.

Let’s see how Brady plays as he gets more comfortable in the offense.

Week 1 NFL Lines

The NFL season kicks off tonight with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs taking on DeShaun Watson and the Houston Texans. It’s a battle of two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league so this one should be fun. Can the defending champs cover a big line tonight?

You can see all the current NFL lines here and also check out the video above. One of many interesting games has Miami getting 6.5 points on the road against New England. The key here is that Miami is an up-and-coming team, while New England starts the post-Tom Brady era. Cam Newton gets the nod, and that would not make me feel comfortable about laying down the points.

R.I.P. Don Shula

One of the greatest coaches in NFL history, Don Shula, passed away at the age of 90. He won two Super Bowls and coached the Miami Dolphins to the only undefeated team in NFL history.

Here’s a great interview with Larry Csonka about Shula:
