Season II Preview Madden 21 AFC

                  The NFASL is entering it's second season on Madden 21. With the AFC losing Super Bowl XXXVII changes were to be expected, and a change is what we did get. The AFC Representative the Pittsburgh Steelers no longer has Big Ben Roethlisberger throwing passes, but 3rd year player out of Ohio State Dwayne Haskins. Haskins was acquired in a Week 2 trade with The Washington Football Team, so his development should improve behind a dominant O-Line, and several big time pass catchers. The AFC Saw Several players retire most notably being Campbell, Richie Incognito, Philip Rivers, & Cameron Wake. There were also major trades with Stephon Gilmore being shipped to the Falcons, J.C. Jackson, and Joe Tuney taking up residence in the Chicago, Davante Parker Going to the Ravens, Richard Sherman now intercepting passes in Las Vegas Nevada for the Raiders , instead of Santa Clara California for the Niners. In any regard lets preview the AFC .

 

AFC North:

 

Pittsburgh Steelers 11-5 Headcoach Hac_3443 (Division Winner)

The Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC North which propelled this team through the playoffs having one of the best playoff runs in league memory defeating the Baltimore Ravens, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the 16-0 perfect New England Patriots. Unfortunately they came up 2 points shy in the Super Bowl falling 24-22 to the Green Bay Packers. The Steelers then made several changes to their team with the most notable being the change at Quarterback which saw them bring in Dwayne Haskins from the Washington Football Team. Haskins will be tasked with being the Quarterback of the future, however he must win right now.

Notable Players:

  • Minkah Fitzpatrick
  • JuJu Smith-Schuster
  • Cameron Heyward
  • T.J. Watt
  • Stephon Tuitt

Baltimore Ravens 10-6 Headcoach Tommanowns (Wildcard)

As one of the premiere franchises in the NFASL the Ravens were none to pleased to see their Division rival the Steelers win the Division, but took solace in watching them come up Short in Super Bowl XXXVII. With Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown, and J.K. Dobbins the Ravens have one of the Youngest most explosive teams in the League. Not to mention a 6 time Super Bowl winning coach in Tommanowns at the Helm the Ravens should be one of the teams to keep an eye for all season long.

Notable Players:

  • Lamar Jackson
  • Marlon Humphrey
  • Marquise Brown
  • Marcus Peters
  • Justin Tucker  (Best Kicker)

Cincinatti Bengals 9-7 Headcoach Bgreat238 (Wildcard)

The Cincinatti Bengals Joe Burrows #1 overall a year ago, and in that same season made the Playoffs bringing in a wildcard spot. That's a scuccess by any metric, and one that did not go unnoticed by the rest of the league. They also managed in that same year to geta steal in the Draft by the name of Akeem Davis-Gaither who just so happened to win Defensive Rookie of the year. They added Evan Engram in the Off-season, and feel as though their team is ready to compete for the Championship. I cannot disagree.

Notable Players:

  • Joe Mixon
  • Evan Engram
  • Joe Burrow
  • John Ross III
  • Akeem Davis-Gaither (Defensive Rookie of the Year)

Cleveland Browns 5-11 Headcoach ChiefHawker3

 The Browns finished the season 5-11, and with a team that stacks up against some of the leagues best in terms of talent that record should not be duplicated again. With Myles Garrett garnering best defensive lineman, the Browns may lean more heavily on a run game that highlights Nick Chubb, utilizing Playaction to Odell Beckham Jr. With the Loss of Jarvis Landry Teams are more apt to Double Beckham. Expect a surge in wins for the Team from Ohio, they have the talent, they just have to put it together.

Notable Players:

  • Myles Garrett (Best Defensive Lineman)
  • Nick Chubb
  • Odell Beckham Jr
  • Austin Hooper
  • Denzel Ward

 

AFC West:

 

 

Kansas City Chiefs 11-5 Headcoach CapnClutchKC (Division Winner)

 

The Kansas City Chiefs are lead by the Face of the League Patrick Mahomes, and last season was no different. Mahomes put up stellar numbers a year ago, and will look to do the same thing this year. With a team that has speed at every position that features Tyreek Hill, and Mecole hardman the Chiefs are a rare team that you can't get ready for. They added Derrius Guice in the in the Offseason to give them a tough yards back to spell Damian Williamson who was unstoppable at points last season. With Tyrann Mathieu becoming the Premeire Defensive back in the league this could be the season the Chiefs hang a banner.

Notable Players:

  • Pat Mahomes (Best Quarterback)
  • Tyreek Hill
  • Tyrann Mathieu (Defensive Player of the Year) (Best Defensive Back)
  • Chris Jones
  • Mecole Hardman

Los Angeles Chargers 8-8 Headcoach stefmoney08

The Los Angeles Chargers made struggled with the Chiefs Speed, so decided on bringing in Veteran Patrick Peterson to play alongside Derwin James. The Chargers failed to win in week 17 which would have given them a post-season shot, however those Chiefs stood in their way. Austin Ekeler who was the Offensive player of the year could be the Key to it all as his production was unmatched. Expect a heavy dose of Ekeler with timely passes from 2nd year player Justin Herbert who will look to avoid a sophomore slump.

Notable Players:

  • Keenan Allen
  • Derwin James Jr.
  • Joey Bosa
  • Desmond King II
  • Austin Ekeler (Offensive Player of the Year)
  • Patrick Peterson

Oakland Raiders 5-11 Headcoach e30zack

The Las Vegas Raiders were hoping to have a better season in their first in Las Vegas. Instead a 5-11 season turned into a Develop players season with Henry Ruggs III getting most of the attention. They now feel it's time to win as they went out and added some veteran leadership in the form of Richard Sherman, and Earl Thomas III to give this team the added Ooomph to make a long post-season jaunt. The Question ins however are those veterans fast enough to compete in a young mans league. Youth, or experience what will be the victor.

Notable Players:

  • Rodney Hudson
  • Josh Jacobs
  • Richard Sherman
  • Darren Waller
  • Earl Thomas III
  • Henry Ruggs III

Denver Broncos 6-10 Headcoach PhillySunoco

 The Denver Broncos at 6-10 were lead by Rookie Jerry Jeudy who brought in to season awards the Offensive Rookie of the year award, and the Best Wide Receiver. That experience should mean the Broncos offense should kick it up a nothc as Drew Lock showed that he is a Franchise Quarterback a year ago. Von Miller is getting long in tooth, but still showed that he is a force to be reckoned with. However with his best days behind him, Miller would love nothing more than to bring this Proud Franchise another Championship.

Notable Players:

  • Von Miller (Best Linebacker)
  • Ali Marpet
  • Justin Simmons
  • Jerry Jeudy (Offensive Rookie of the Year) (Best Wide Receiver)
  • Phillip Lindsay

 

 

 

 

AFC South:

 

Tennessee Titans 13-3 Headcoach ChocoRainReubz (Division Winner)

The Tennessee Titans dominated the South a year ago finishing with a 13-3 record. They were lead by Battering Ram of a Back Derrick Henry, and a defense that was #1 in take aways. Kevin Ballard, Jadeveon Clowney, and many others were hell on Sundays as teams did not expect team speed and ferociousness that hasn't been seen in the league since the 80's. Expect another repeat of that this season as the Titans stood mostly pat in the off-season instead leaning on a team that was clicking on all cylinders all season long. .

Notable Players:

  • Derrick Henry
  • Kevin Ballard
  • Jadeveon Clowney
  • Adoree' Jackson

Jacksonvile Jaguars 9-7 Headcoach ThePacificiCowboy (Wildcard)

The Jacksonville were one of the Surprise teams in the league a year ago starting 15 rookies throughout the season. They were able to grab a Wildcard spot, and although they did not win in the playoffs just being there was an accomplishment. The Jaguars will need steady Quarterback play out of Gardner Minshew if they want to take that next step. With the big play capabilities of D.J. Chark they have their Michael Irvin, they just are looking for their Aikman, and Emmitt.

Notable Players:

  • D.J. Chark Jr
  • Myles Jack
  • Josh Allen
  • Jacquiski Tartt

Indianapolis Colts 7-9 Headcoach Gaberooni54

The Team that no one wanted to face late in the season are the Indianapolis Colts. After a slow start they turned it on down the stretch, and almost got into the Post-season. They will look to carry that over into this season, as the Colts are one of the more balanced teams in the league. With a dominant Offensive line, and a incredible front 7 the Colts just may take the south this season. There big Acquisition in the Off-season was Jason McCourty which should help them immensely in the Secondary

Notable Players:

  • Quenton Nelson
  • DeFerest Buckner
  • Darius Leonard
  • Chris Harris Jr
  • T.Y. Hilton
  • Jason McCourty

Houston Texans 4-12 Headcoach Jace_Curry25

 The Texans were set up for failure at the start of the year when the Real life Texans traded their best player Deshaun Watson right before the Season for what amounted to a hill of beans. The Texans in Madden had to deal with tht loss, and finished the season with a 4-12 record. The Texans Made a splash trading for Tight End Mark Andrews giving Super Star Deshaun Watson another weapon that should balance out the Texans offense. Look for the Texans to get into the swing of things as the Season progresses.

Notable Players:

  • J.J. Watt
  • DeShaun Watson
  • Mark Andrews
  • Brandin Cooks
  • Will Fuller V

 

 

 

AFC East:

 

New England Patriots 16-0 Headcoach SleepingKnapp (Division Winner)

The New England Patriots were top dog in the Conference, and League finishing with a 16-0 record, however they were unable to go down in the Annals of history as they came up short falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Post-Season. The Patriots made some major moves to get younger as they saw their Super Bowl Window closing. They Traded the Games Best Corner Back Stephon Gilmore who single handed locked down the opposing teams best receiver. They also let Jason McCourty, and  J.C. Jackson go from there secondary which was a strength, but now is one of the games worst. Expect the Patriots to take a step back this season, however perfection was going to be impossible to duplicate.

Notable Players:

  • Devin McCourty
  • Sony Michel  (Best Running Back)
  • Jonathan Jones
  • Calvin Ridley
  • Cam Newton
  • Shaq Mason (Best Offensive Lineman)

Buffalo Bills 8-8 Headcoach OffensiveDom

The Buffalo Bills came up just short of the playoffs a year ago, and have made a move to put major pressure in the middle of the Defense with the arrival of Matthew Ioannidis, and Ryan Kerrigan in a trade with the Washington Football Team. With those moves Bills Front 7 has become one of the leagues best, and could result in them taking down the New England Patriots. Josh Allens strong arm allows him to make throws many quarterbacks can only dream of, and with another season of familiarity with Stefon Diggs the look for the Bills to put up a fight, and break through to the post season this season.

Notable Players:

  • Josh Allen
  • Stefon Diggs
  • Tre'Davious White
  • Matthew Ioannidis
  • Micah Hyde
  • Ed Oliver

New York Jets 5-11 Headcoach Traylonakanana

The New York Jets unhappy with the way their Defense played made a major move bringing in pretty much the entire Bears defense as they have Roquan Smith, Eddie Goldman, and Kyle Fuller. They also made another win now move as they paid big money for A.J. Green which should help out Sam Darnold as he continues to lead a franchise who has struggled in recent memory. The Defensive addition should bode well for this team in the Division, and could make it a 3 way race.

Notable Players:

  • Avery Williamson
  • C.J. Mosley
  • Eddie Goldman
  • Roquan Smith
  • Kyle Fuller
  • A.J. Green
  • Quinnen Williams

Miami Dolphins 5-11 Headcoach I757IMonster

 The Miami Dolphins Have their Quarterback of the Future in Tua Tagovaiola, then went out and acquired the Offensive line of the Future to protect him drafting 3 offnsive linemen in the first round. With Matt Breida running behind what many think could be the best offensive line in football in a few years, the Dolphins are planning to run teams into the ground. This season however should still be a rebuild, but expect Tua to take another step in terms of development, and finish around .500 on the season.

Notable Players:

  • Tua Tagovaiola
  • Byron Jones
  • Jarvis Landry
  • Xavien Howard
  • Matt Breida
