The San Francisco 49ers Signed 5 year pro, and budding star Marcus Williams to a 5 year 82.1 Million dollar contract to play alongside Rayann Duqmaq giving the Niners one of the best safety Duos in the league. There were several players that retired also as DeSean Jackson, Big Ben Roethlisberger, Jason Kelce, & Jimmy Smith all hung up their cleats, and will just await word for the call from the Hall of Fame. Season II blew by, and now Season 3 is upon us. With The NFC winning 2 straight Super Bowls, they will look to make it 3 in a row. With that said, lets preview the NFC for Madden 21, Season III.

However this is a new year, and what have you done for me lately comes into play. The The Panthers made few changes in the off-season, instead opted to go with what got them there a year ago. The Panthers have the Leagues reigning MVP, and Super Bowl MVP with Christian McCafrrey so the Backfield is set for years to come. They did however realise that teams would begin loading up to slow him down, and they drafted several offensive Weapons to help keep the running lanes open. They drafted Wide receiversFrank Ladson Jr., Travell Harris, Elijah Moore, and Tightend James Mitchell to bolster a passing game that features D.J. Moore.

They have let several players leave with the most notable being Stephon Gilmore. The Falcons now have the lowest rated team in the league, even though they still have Julio Jones catching everything thrown his way.

The Buccaneers had a disappointing season going 6-9, after a 10-6 season a year prior with Tom Brady at the Helm. However Brady Skills diminished over time leaving the Buccaneers Feleipe Franks behind center, and the spotligt was too bright for him.

With a the leagues worst defense the Saints will Drafted Kayvon Thibodeaux with their first pick, to play alongside Cameron Jordan, and Marcus Davenport.

NFC North:

 

Green Bay Packers 15-1 Headcoach Deuce4975 (Division Winner)

The Packers have also made a move that was 2 seasons in the making as they give the ball over to Jordan Love out of Utah to take the Packers into the next 10 years of NFL Football. The Packers are absolutely loaded on offense so Love should be okay if he can keep the turnovers down. The Packers drafted the 6'3" Joseph Ngata out of Clemosn giving the Packers the biggest Wide Receiving corp in the league. With Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, Jace Sternberger on offense, Za'Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander, Darnell Savage the Packers will be formidable all season long.

Minnesota Vikings 5-11 Headcoach dhontos

The Minnesota Vikings had a down year going 5-11, a utter dissapointment for a team that made the Playoffs a year prior. With their Quarterback Situation in shambles the answer just may lie in the right arm of Sam Howell out of North Carolina. Howell won't blow anyone off the field in terms of Physical attributes as he is only 6'1" and 225lbs. However he is deadly accurate, and reminds many of who watch hikm of Drew Brees with a slightly stronger arm. With Dalvin Cook in the backfield, and Adam Thielen, and Justin Jefferson receiving balls the Howell should excel as the season progresses. However the North is deadly tough so getting out to a fast start is paramount for this franchise.

Notable Players:

  • Dalvin Cook
  • Danielle Hunter
  • Michael Pierce
  • Adam Thielen
  • Justin Jefferson

They traded for Dak Prescott, and Drafted Shut down corner Patrick Surtain II. adding Surtain to a secondary that includes their #1 Draft Pick from 2 years ago Jeff Okudah, Justin Coleman, and Desmond Trufant the Lions arguably have the best secondary in the game. Teams should expect a lot of Man coverage, and blitzing in front making for a resurgent Lions Team.

Notable Players:

  • Dak Prescott
  • Kenny Golladay
  • Trey Flowers
  • Jeff Okudah
  • Patrick Surtain II

Chicago Bears 8-8 Headcoach Jady_Tru

The Chicago Bears at 2-14 a year ago found themselves with the #1 Pick in the Draft, and used it to select Generational Talent Trevor Lawrence from Clemson. With the QB of the Future in the building many are expecting Coach JD, to get back to his winning ways, however winning is a mindset that can be lost just like your house keys. The Bears did make other notable moves moving on from Bears Staples such as Roquan Smith, Eddie Goldman, and Kyler Fuller Trading them to the Jets. They also acquired JC Jackson, and Joe Thuney from the Patriots, and broke the Bank to Sign Keanu Neal in Free agency.

NFC West:

 

San Francisco 49ers 12-4 Headcoach Kaliko_420 (Wildcard)

 

The San Francisco 49ers remained one of the top teams a season ago with a defense that was among the leagues top, a Offense that featured Raheem Mostert, and a coach with Super Bowl Pedigree. However they once again succumbed in the post-season as Jimmy Garoppolo struggled. That pretty much sealed the deal for Jimmy G in the Golden state as the Niners cut him immediately, and drafted Kedon Slovis out of USC a player they are very familiar with. The Niners are built to win now, so them giving the ball to a rookie QB has many people scratching their heads, and wondering if they will make a move sooner, rather than later. The Niners bolstered a already stout defense with the Signing of Marcus Williams, however they will have their hands full in the West.

Notable Players:

  • George Kittle
  • Raheem Mostert
  • Nick Bosa
  • Trent Williams
  • Fred Warner
  • Marcus Williams
  • Kwon Alexander

Seattle Seahawks 12-4 Headcoach IcyyCA (Division Winner)

The Seattle Seahawks took a huge step winning what many believe is the toughest Division in sports the NFC West. The only thing left to do is win the Super Bowl, and with Russell Wilson playing at a MVP level they are one of the favorites to come out of the NFC. Wilson has a team around him that features D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Chris Carson house giving them the firepower to go deep into the Postseason. With Jamal Adams anchoring the Defense the Seahawks are able to take chances that most teams simply can't. A 12-4 record a year ago means that Super Bowl or Bust is the mantra for this team, this year.

Notable Players:

  • Russell Wilson
  • D.K. Metcalf
  • Jamal Adams
  • Shaquill Griffin
  • Bobby Wagner

Arizona Cardinals 8-8 Headcoach Papalon24

The Arizona Cardinals were one of the huge let downs on the year a season ago going 8-8 with a team that seemed destined to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. They have now made a move that has left many people scratching their heads as they let Kyler Murray go via a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Cardinals coach never bought into the style of play that that Murray wanted to do, and have instead opted for a more traditional pocket passer in the 6'6" Feleipe Franks. Franks is most compared to Joe Flacco, and will be expected to lead a team that is absolutely loaded to the promised land.

Notable Players:

  • DeAndre Hopkins
  • Chandler Jones
  • Budda Baker
  • Von Miller
  • JuJu Smith-Schuster
  • Isaiah Simmons
  • Chris Godwin

Los Angeles Rams 3-13 Headcoach brazyxai_

 The Los Angeles Rams May find themselves in the middle of a rebuild as they finished the season 3-13 a year ago. There are rumblings that Aaron Donald, and Jalen Ramsey are demanding trades, as the Defensive scheme that the Rams coach has put into place saw Donald get the fewest sacks of his career, and Jalen Ramsey look absolutely ordinary in terms of a corner. The Rams have placd their faith in now second year starter Trey Lance who has all the metrics for a QB, but decision making has been absolutely brutal for the QB out of North Dakota as he threw an all time league leading, history leading 60 ints. For the Rams to become relevant they may need to slow things down, and hand the ball off to the newly acquired Marlon Mack.

Notable Players:

  • Aaron Donald
  • Jalen Ramsey
  • Cooper Kupp
  • John Johnson III
  • Marlon Mack

 

NFC East:

 

New York Giants 11-5 Headcoach THE-Kiid-Kenny (Wildcard)

The New York Giants lost the seat of Power as they give the Division to The Washington Football Team. They however come back this season with a new found optimism. It also helps when you have 2000 yard back Saquon Barkley in the Backfield! The Giants know though they will only go as far as the right arm of Daniel Jones will take them. Jones has the Weapons with Darius Slayton, and Sammy Watkins. However with Barkley in the backfield some believe he has retarded his growth, and could be standing in the way of greatness. Jones played the game of his life in the playoffs, and will look to build on that in the up and coming season.

Notable Players:

  • Saquon Barkley
  • Daniel Jones
  • Darius Slayton
  • Sammy Watkins
  • Carl Lawson
  • Leonard Williams

The WFT however are a Defensive team lead by their front 4 that consists of 4 1st rond draft picks with Montez Sweat, and Chase Young Spear heading the unit.
