We are only a week away from the start of the regular season, and one of the things that cannot be missed are my 100 predictions for the 2021 NFL Season by Ulises Harada. Again I will try to exceed my personal record of 44% in 2018, but more importantly not to repeat the previous year, in which I fell to 34.5% (in a season complicated by COVID).
As always, the best thing is to receive your comments, creative insults and your own predictions at the end of this article and on our social networks. But that yes: do not forget that we are going to return to review them at the end of the campaign, so here we have an appointment to support what is written.
Can you predict the results of the NFL better than anyone?
