2021 NFL Power Rankings on Offense – Counting Down All 32 Teams

| May 21, 2021 5:32 am PDT

Coming off a year in which the NFL shattered the previous record for the most points scored, we can expect even more firepower in 2021.

 On the heels of GMs being reminded that offense reigns supreme, the top six picks in the draft were either QBs or pass-catchers.

Just how important was offensive prowess a season ago?

Each of the nine teams that averaged more than 28 points per game made the playoffs. Kansas City and Tampa Bay finished “1-2” in passing yards; they are the two teams that wound up clashing in the Super Bowl.

Looking ahead toward 2021, changes under center highlight a handful of offenses in transition. Let’s see how they stack up with one another in these NFL power rankings on offense.

*The yards per play and points per game statistics reflect the 2020 regular season.

32 – Houston Texans

  • Yards Per Play: 1st
  • Points Per Game: T-18th

Working under the assumption that Deshaun Watson won’t be available, the Texans offense is an anemic bunch that lacks talent across the depth chart. Without Watson covering up holes and pushing the ball down the field, things could turn ugly quickly for David Culley in year one.

Davis Mills and Ryan Finley are in a battle for the backup job behind Tyrod Taylor – I am reluctant to call any of those options serviceable at this level.

Brandin Cooks is surrounded by a couple of 30-something wideouts in three-WR sets, while the offensive line is going to start three men who are appropriately suited for rotational roles.

And no, signing RBs Mark Ingram and Phillip Lindsay doesn’t move the needle for a rushing attack that ranked 31st in the NFL.

31 – Detroit Lions

  • Yards Per Play: T-14th
  • Points Per Game: 20th

I will start with some good news.

Drafting Penei Sewell 7th overall was smart and helps set a foundation. T.J. Hockenson and D’Andre Swift are pieces you can build around. Other than touting Frank Ragnow for the job he does at center, there is not much else to showcase.

As for the bad news, swapping Matthew Stafford out for Jared Goff is a downgrade of epic proportions. The current wide receiving corps in Detroit is nowhere near up to par – and that’s being polite.

After working with Justin Herbert and dependable wideouts in LA, Anthony Lynn has a difficult assignment in his first season as the Lions new OC. Expect major regression out of Detroit’s offense in 2021.

30 – Denver Broncos

  • Yards Per Play: T-24th
  • Points Per Game: 28th

I love Javonte Williams as a player and think we will see him overtake Melvin Gordon from the get-go as the Broncos top running back.

KJ Hamler is a perfect complement in the slot to Denver’s outside threats, and Noah Fant has flashed his ability to stretch the field in the seams.

Having said all that, we must address the elephant in the room. Not the porous play of the offensive line in 2020 (25th according to PFF), although that’s also an issue, but the gaping hole at the quarterback position.

Inking Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t add competition for Drew Lock or Brett Rypien. What it does is leave Vic Fangio with a trio of less than desirable options.

29 – New England Patriots

  • Yards Per Play: T-21st
  • Points Per Game: 27th

Slotting New England 29th in these power rankings for NFL offenses hinges on the idea that Cam Newton is going to be the team’s starting quarterback.

Bill Belichick’s continued support for Newton has been a little perplexing, but don’t expect Robert Kraft to step in regarding who’s taking first-team reps. When asked about the timeline of integrating Mac Jones into the fray, Kraft was blunt with an honest response.

“I’ll let Bill – I pay Bill a lot of money, let him decide.”

A bevy of newcomers gives Josh McDaniels a lot more to work with than what was at his disposal in 2020, but do not start counting any chickens before they hatch in Foxborough. Newton’s waning mechanics were blatant; this could once again be a one-dimensional offense.

28 – New York Jets

  • Yards Per Play: 32nd
  • Points Per Game: 32nd

Dead last in yards per play and points per game tells part of the story. The Jets also clocked in dead last in yards per game and third-down conversion rate.

Clearing Adam Gase and an undeveloped Sam Darnold out of the way are steps in the right direction, but is Zach Wilson ready to handle the limelight in the Big Apple?

The big-armed BYU quarterback enters a situation that was boosted heavily in the draft, but we may need to temper the expectations in year one.

The Jets failed to eclipse 28 points in any game during a season that five teams averaged at least 30 points per. If there is any hope for Gang Green, it’s that the relationship between Wilson and Mike LaFleur buds quickly.

27 – Philadelphia Eagles

  • Yards Per Play: T-28th
  • Points Per Game: T-25th

I want to believe that this offense can thrive behind the dual-threat capabilities of Jalen Hurts. However, the sample size just isn’t there to start hyping up a player who completed 52% of his passes as a rookie.

DeVonta Smith adds a new layer to the Eagles offense that has been missing for several years, and the hope is that Jalen Reagor evolves into a reliable slot receiver.

Between running the RPO and feeding Miles Sanders the rock, establishing the run is the key that’ll enable Hurts to air it out.

The path to success is paved, but Philly must become more efficient on third down (28th in the NFL). Thankfully, moving on from Doug Pederson and into the Nick Sirianni regime should help in that regard.

26 – Chicago Bears

  • Yards Per Play: T-26th
  • Points Per Game: T-22nd
“Andy is the starter. Andy’s going to get the reps.”

After uttering this babble, I am losing faith in Matt Nagy. It will be a shame if the Bears start Andy Dalton in week one on Sunday Night Football rather than hand the keys of the offense to Justin Fields.

The idea that holding a clipboard on the sidelines is better (than being thrown into the fire and gaining game experience) for a QB’s development is a farce.

Here’s another myth floating around Chi-Town.

This talk that the Dalton/Fields situation is like the Alex Smith/Patrick Mahomes deal. That’s straight baloney. Alex Smith was a competent QB who was delivering and winning games. Andy Dalton is a bottom-tier QB who gives Chicago less of a chance than Mitchell Trubisky.

25 – Carolina Panthers

  • Yards Per Play: 17th
  • Points Per Game: 24th

The intent to develop Sam Darnold in Carolina is genuine. After trading for the wobbly Jets QB in the offseason, the Panthers passed on a quarterback during the draft and picked up Darnold’s fifth-year option.

It’s a bold move by the front office, but perhaps there’s some hope.

Sam goes from playing pitch and catch with Jamison Crowder and Braxton Berrios to a set of weaponry that includes CMC, DJ Moore, and Robby Anderson.

Terrace Marshall Jr. reunites with Joe Brady and could be one of the sneaky sleepers who could win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Set to slide in as Carolina’s #3 wideout, Marshall caught 13 TDs under Brady’s guidance in 2019 serving as LSU’s third wide receiver. Surrounded by a slew of flashy toys, there will be no more excuses for the Sam Darnold supporters.

24 – Miami Dolphins

  • Yards Per Play: T-21st
  • Points Per Game: 15th

The Dolphins were on a mission to add speed to their offense. By virtue of luring in Will Fuller and drafting Jaylen Waddle, the Phins are suddenly loaded with a pair of shifty wide receivers who can leak behind a secondary.

There is no question the table is set for Tua to deliver, don’t be so quick to assume that things will improve in year two. Tagovailoa produced 13 turnover-worthy plays and just seven big-time throws in 2020.

He looked flustered when trying to extend plays outside of the pocket and was ultimately yanked for Ryan Fitzpatrick on more than one occasion.

Following the draft, PFF inserted Tagovailoa as the 29th-ranked starting quarterback for the 2021 NFL season. I think that’s a fair assessment.

23 – New York Giants

  • Yards Per Play: T-28th
  • Points Per Game: 31st

Daniel Jones took a major step back as a sophomore after performing favorably as a rookie, but maybe we should cut the former 6th-overall pick some slack.

New York’s offensive line was the 31st-ranked unit according to PFF – in large part due to first-round selection Andrew Thomas being completely overwhelmed.

The Giants left tackled succumbed to 57 pressures in 2020 – 14 more than any other left tackle in football.

Evan Engram and Darius Slayton each finished inside the top-6 in drops. Focal point Saquon Barkley was lost for the year in the second game of the season. To make matters worse, Jones was adjusting to life with Jason Garrett calling the plays. Ouch.

Fast forward to today and Garrett is still there, but at least Daniel is supported by a legitimate supporting cast. Barkley returns healthy as the offense welcomes a trio of newcomers (Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, John Ross) who can all be difference-makers.

The red carpet has been rolled out for Daniel Jones to progress and become a viable starting quarterback.

22 – Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Yards Per Play: T-26th
  • Points Per Game: 12th

I am more down on the Steelers offense than most, but that’s because I don’t believe that Ben Roethlisberger has much of anything left in the tank. Unfortunately, Mike Tomlin doesn’t have much leeway given who’s sitting behind Big Ben on the depth chart.

Please, don’t even get me started on Joshua Dobbs or the corpses of Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins.

There is no doubt there are some exciting pass-catchers in place, and Najee Harris appears locked and loaded for a three-down role. The combo of Eric Ebron and Pat Freiermuth is formidable, but that’s where the praise comes to an end.

Pittsburgh failed to address the shortcomings on their offensive line despite needing to replace Matt Feiler, Maurkice Pouncey, and Alejandro Villanueva.

Even with Harris in the fold, the worst rushing offense in 2020 is unlikely to see much improvement.

21 – Washington Football Team

  • Yards Per Play: 31st
  • Points Per Game: T-25th

The Washington Football Team will be among the most popular stacks in DFS throughout 2021. Leaning on heavy concentration toward Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel, Ryan Fitzpatrick has everything he needs to shine in DC.

In fact, one of my bold NFL predictions is that Fitzy ends the year as one of the top-12 fantasy quarterbacks.

Most anticipate major contributions from Logan Thomas and Antonio Gibson. Look for Dyami Brown to overtake Kelvin Harmon as he gets incorporated into the game plan.

Brown’s a sincere downfield threat who averaged more than 20 yards/reception in each of his final two seasons in Chapel Hill. If the protection scheme holds up, Washington can start beelining toward an NFC East title.

20 – Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Yards Per Play: T-24th
  • Points Per Game: 30th

As stated in my AFC South Preview, just throw everything about last year’s depressing Jaguars offense right out the window.

Urban Meyer arrives with a completely revamped coaching staff and an invigorating roster chock-full of budding talent.

Trevor Lawrence is armed with capable wideouts and can continue crafting his rapport with Travis Etienne. There is not a whole lot in the tight end room to be excited about, which is why Darrell Bevell is likely to utilize lots of 4-WR sets.

We may even see Etienne line up in the slot to help accommodate the plan of attack. In any case, this will be a much-improved offense in 2021.

19 – Cincinnati Bengals

  • Yards Per Play: 30th
  • Points Per Game: 29th

With Joe Burrow on track to be ready for week 1, an explosive offense is set to be unleashed in Cincy. Joe Mixon is reportedly healthy, Tyler Boyd holds the fort down in the slot, and Tee Higgins is looking to build off a stellar rookie campaign.

I was among the population who thought the Bengals should have drafted Penei Sewell at #5, but it is difficult to argue against the Ja’Marr Chase selection.

The former Bayou Bengal popped off at his pro day and emerged as the clear-cut #1 wide receiver in the 2021 class. And we all remember Ja’Marr’s video-game-like production during his lone season with Burrow in Baton Rouge.

Ja’Marr Chase Stats in 2019
Games Receptions Receiving Yards Yards/Reception Touchdowns
14 84 1,780 21.2 20

All of this is exciting, but we’d be naïve to assume that the offensive line will automatically take a jump.

Before you conclude that Riley Reiff coming over from Minnesota represents a major upgrade, know that Reiff was the 24th-rated left tackle a season ago.

18 – Las Vegas Raiders

  • Yards Per Play: T-8th
  • Points Per Game: 10th

The Raiders moved the ball down the field nicely in 2020. They were 6th in the NFL in third-down conversion rate (46.0%) and 8th in yards per game (383.3).

The glaring stat that set this offense back was their league-leading 16 lost fumbles. That includes eight lost fumbles by Derek Carr alone – no other player in football lost more than six.

As for Mike Mayock’s offseason plan, plenty of eyebrows were raised.

Vegas ripped apart their offensive line and spent $14.5 million on a backup running back. They didn’t spend any draft capital on skill-position players emphasizing the need for Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards to take big leaps.

Darren Waller caught 107 balls and went out over 1,100 yards for the second straight year – the 6’6” tight end will continue to put up big numbers.

17 – San Francisco 49ers

  • Yards Per Play: T-14th
  • Points Per Game: 21st

Once Kyle Shanahan stops messing around and officially names Trey Lance as his starter, the 49ers should vault into the top 10 of NFL offensive power rankings.

Retaining Trent Williams and getting Mike McGlinchey back healthy ensure the edges are walled-off, while the stable of running backs is brimming with aptitude.

Trey Sermon is in line for a big role after San Francisco traded up to acquire his services. 6th-round selection Elijah Mitchell is a burner who Shanny noted “can do the three football Rs of rushing, receiving, and returning.”

And don’t forget Wayne Gallman was signed to initially add depth behind Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson.

The loss of Mike LaFleur is a blow to the passing game, however, having George Kittle at 100% is a noteworthy consolation.

16 – Arizona Cardinals

  • Yards Per Play: T-14th
  • Points Per Game: 13th

The second-fastest team in the league last year in terms of offensive pace should play even faster in 2021. With as many speedsters as there are surrounding Kyler Murray, it makes little sense to try and pound the football with Chase Edmonds or James Conner.

Instead, Kliff Kingsbury can dream up a playbook with a spread-out attack and let Murray go to work. That means quick-hitting throws to Rondale Moore and letting A.J. Green operate on the sidelines.

DeAndre Hopkins has the best hands of any receiver in the NFL and is among the best route runners, too.

Missing a total of two games in eight seasons, Nuk must be considered one of the two or three best wideouts in the sport.

15 – New Orleans Saints

  • Yards Per Play: T-11th
  • Points Per Game: 5th

Here is what we know about the Saints offense in 2021. Sean Payton is a creative genius when it comes to game-planning on offense. The offense line is among the sturdiest in the league, and the football will be force-fed into the hands of Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas.

What we don’t know is if it’ll be Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill under center. And who is going to step up and contribute outside of Kamara and Thomas?

Hill is the much more dynamic option and the guy I believe gives New Orleans the better chance to win.

Tre’Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway should eat up the bulk of the targets that were commanded by Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Cook.

Taking a step back seems imminent, but Payton is too resourceful for me to drop the Saints offense outside of the top-15.

14 – Atlanta Falcons

  • Yards Per Play: T-18th
  • Points Per Game: 16th

I am interested to see how Arthur Smith handles the roster he has inherited. After leaning heavily on the run in Tennessee with Derrick Henry as the focal point, the first-year HC will need to adapt to his new surroundings.

This won’t be the Mike Davis show in Atlanta. Expect to see a high-flying air assault peppering targets to three big-time playmakers.

We know about Julio Jones, and drafting Kyle “The Unicorn” Pitts at #4 captivates our attention. What takes this passing offense over the top is the emergence of Calvin Ridley.

Ridley is no longer just the sidekick to Julio – he’s evolved into a top-10 WR in his own right.

13 – Dallas Cowboys

  • Yards Per Play: T-21st
  • Points Per Game: 17th

Rather than overpromise and underdeliver, I’m slotting Cowboys at #13 in my post-draft NFL power rankings on offense.

Keep in mind, this group has the potential to be a top-5 unit. The problem is there are no guarantees that the offensive line will return to being a strength. In turn, we don’t know which version of Ezekiel Elliott will show up.

Will it be the first-class RB who averaged 125.4 yards from scrimmage from 2016-2019? Or will it be the 2020 iteration who came in overweight and provided just 87.8 yards from scrimmage per contest?

In case you are concerned about the lack of talent in the tight end room, know that Dak Prescott is blessed with arguably the top WR trio in the league.

Don’t you remember Dak’s silly numbers before he got hurt in 2020 (371.2 passing yards/game)?

12 – Los Angeles Chargers

  • Yards Per Play: 20th
  • Points Per Game: T-18th

It is easy to be enthusiastic about the Chargers offense in 2021. Justin Herbert is coming off a sensational rookie campaign in which he set a new bar moving forward for first-year signal-callers.

The vulnerability of the offensive line deterred LA a season ago; it was no surprise to see Tom Telesco make beefing up the protection scheme item #1 on the offseason agenda.

Corey Linsley and Matt Feiler are major FA acquisitions that bolster the interior. Rashawn Slater immediately plugs in at LT and is set to protect Herbert’s blind side for years to come.

The Bolts are a little thin at RB behind Austin Ekeler, but a well-rounded collection of pass-catchers gives Herbert plenty of ammunition.

11 – Tennessee Titans

  • Yards Per Play: T-4th
  • Points Per Game: 4th

One of three teams to run the football more than they threw it in 2020 (Ravens, Patriots), the Titans offense might be even more run-heavy in 2021.

A.J. Brown is in the discussion to be the first WR taken in fantasy drafts, but there’s a significant drop-off behind Brown on the depth chart.

Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith each bolted in free agency; it’s hard to imagine Josh Reynolds and Anthony Firkser adequately filling the voids.

With opposing defenses being able to stack the box more often, Derrick Henry is going to have a tough time getting loose – let alone toppling 2,000 yards. Then again, every time I’ve doubted Ryan Tannehill since he arrived in Nashville, I’ve been proven wrong.

10 – Seattle Seahawks

  • Yards Per Play: T-11th
  • Points Per Game: 8th

Re-signing Chris Carson was smart, but it looks like Russell Wilson will get his wish and start airing the ball out more often.

Seattle hired Shane Waldron as their offensive coordinator to generate a scheme that takes advantage of the Seahawks deep threats.

Pete Carroll quickly became enamored with the former Rams passing game coordinator and looks forward to the mindset that Waldron brings to the table.

“It’s very intricate and very precise. It’s beautifully thought out. It’s got such a complementary makeup to it, that’s why I fell in love with what he was bringing. It really makes sense. It’s really smart.”

With D’Wayne Eskridge ready to link up with D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, there’s merit in betting on Wilson winning the MVP. Especially at the top NFL sportsbooks where Russell’s price tag lurks at +1800.

9 – Indianapolis Colts

  • Yards Per Play: T-8th
  • Points Per Game: 9th

Before you get all hot and bothered about the Colts landing in the top 10 of these NFL offense power rankings, remember this was a top-10 offense in 2020. That was with a decrepit Philip Rivers at the helm – I see strides being taken now that Frank Reich is reunited with Carson Wentz.

Wentz’s trials and tribulations in Philly are not to be forgotten, but the probability of success in his new situation is way, way higher. Indy’s offensive line is on par with the best in the league, as is their reserve of running backs.

Perhaps most attractive is having “real” wide receivers to work with instead of QB-turned WRs and practice squad players.

Wentz can now grow under the direction of Chris Ballard, as opposed to being driven into the ground by the baseless decisions being made by Howie Roseman.

8 – Cleveland Browns

  • Yards Per Play: T-11th
  • Points Per Game: 14th

Baker Mayfield is in an envious position. It is one thing to be equipped with a top-tier offensive line and one of the most potent rushing attacks in the league.

It’s another when you consider that Cleveland has three pass-catching tight ends and a couple of wide receivers who have combined to make eight Pro Bowls.

Those wondering who is going to step in as the third WR behind OBJ and “Juice” Landry, look no further than the 91st pick in the 2021 Draft.

Posting the lowest 40 time (4.26 second) of any 2021 prospect, the Browns GM locked eyes on Anthony Schwartz early in the draft process.

“What I can tell you is what attracted us to Anthony is his ability to stretch the field.”

7 – Minnesota Vikings

  • Yards Per Play: T-4th
  • Points Per Game: 11th

Kirk Cousins has caught a lot of grief for not getting Minnesota over the hump, but disastrous play from the interior of the offensive line has played a big part in this team’s struggles. As was a porous defense in 2020 that Mike Zimmer called “the worst he’s ever coached.”

Christian Darrisaw comes in as a highly touted left tackle prospect; Wyatt Davis will immediately compete for playing time at left guard. Giving Cousins a little more time and giving Dalvin Cook a few more holes will go a long way for this offense.

Plus, “Captain Kirk” and the offensive line don’t have to be special for the Vikings O to stand out. Cook was one of PFF’s top-three graded RBs in 2020. Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson were each top-5 WRs.

6 – Los Angeles Rams

  • Yards Per Play: T-18th
  • Points Per Game: T-22nd

Elevating the Rams from a below-average offense to #6 in the power rankings is a direct reflection of Sean McVay getting to open things up with Matthew Stafford.

LA’s somewhat unstable protection scheme will be covered up by Stafford’s ability to extend plays when the pocket collapses. Matthew is a sneaky good runner and is incredibly adept at changing his arm angle to deliver the ball into tight windows.

While McVay gets matched with the most gifted quarterback he’s ever been able to coach, Stafford walks into the most appealing situation he’s ever been a part of.

Throw in Tyler Higbee, Cam Akers, and a developing Van Jefferson. This supporting cast is so robust I barely have time to squeeze in a mention for DeSean Jackson and Tutu Atwell. Forget about Atwell’s size (or lack thereof). This front office didn’t draft Tutu 57th overall without a sincere plan in place.

5 – Green Bay Packers

  • Yards Per Play: T-2nd
  • Points Per Game: 1st

I’ll have some major editing to do if the Packers pull the trigger on an Aaron Rodgers deal and head into 2021 with Jordan Love as their QB1. Everything Green Bay has accomplished on offense is because of A-Rod’s excellence.

The idea of moving on after the way Rodgers performed in 2020 seems unthinkable, but it’s being widely reported that the relationship could be beyond repair.

I will brush all rumors aside for now as Aaron is currently part of the team. Therefore, the Pack must be touted as one of the top-5 offenses in football.

Davante Adams is coming off a banner year (115-1,374-18), and there’s “another Rodgers” worth keeping an eye on. Amari Rodgers should slide into a starting slot role put up consistent numbers right away.

Locking Aaron Jones in long term doesn’t fit the typical roster construction we see flourishing in today’s NFL, but it’s hard to contend against the idea when you study Jones’ production.

Aaron Jones Is a Beast – By the Numbers in 2019 and 2020
Rushing Receiving
Year Games Yards TD Yards/Rush Receptions Yards TD
2019 16 1,084 16 4.6 49 474 3
2020 14 1,104 9 5.5 47 355 2

4 – Baltimore Ravens

  • Yards Per Play: T-8th
  • Points Per Game: 7th

Examining the Ravens offense, no wonder the production dipped dramatically from 2019 to 2020. This was an ugly WR core a season ago that couldn’t create separation or win one-on-one battles.

In comes a healthy Sammy Watkins and rookies Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace. Credit to Eric DeCosta for supplying Lamar Jackson crisp route runners to work worth.

It’s ambitious to say that going from Orlando Brown to Alejandro Villanueva (at right tackle) is a lateral move, but the return of Ronnie Stanley means this offensive line will be much improved.

Still, the ceiling of this offense comes down to how well Lamar Jackson plays. After balling out and winning the MVP in 2020, Jackson finished 2021 with a lower passer rating than Derek Carr.

3 – Buffalo Bills

  • Yards Per Play: 6th
  • Points Per Game: 2nd

I can’t say enough good things about Josh Allen. Finishing runner-up in the MVP Award voting sums up how well he played, but it’s the belief he instills in his teammates that takes this offense over the top.

As Cole Beasley stated, Allen isn’t just the type of guy you want leading your huddle in crunch time.

“He’s a guy you’d bring to a bar fight. And there’s not many quarterbacks you can say that about.”

An offense that was on the rise during Allen’s first two seasons erupted in 2020 thanks to a career year from Stefon Diggs.

There’s now some insurance behind Zack Moss and Devin Singletary in the form of Matt Breida but expect Allen to be featured as the team’s primary option near the goal line.

2 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Yards Per Play: 7th
  • Points Per Game: 3rd

Imagine winning the Super Bowl and returning the entire offense that got you there. That’s one of the many luxuries being enjoyed by Bruce Arians.

We can dismiss any theories of Tom Brady slowing down or not being able to throw the deep ball, and we can do so using numbers rather than hearsay.

On throws of 20+ yards in 2020, Brady registered 45 completions, 1,515 yards, and 15 touchdowns. How did that stack up when compared to other NFL quarterbacks?

1st, 1st, and 1st.

Jaelon Darden is an intriguing draft pick who’s got “sleeper” written all over him, although getting onto the field as a rookie will be easier said than done. Tampa Bay’s WR depth chart is so deep it’s almost laughable.

  • Mike Evans
  • Chris Godwin
  • Antonio Brown
  • Scotty Miller
  • Tyler Johnson
  • Jaelon Dardon
  • Justin Watson

1 – Kansas City Chiefs

  • Yards Per Play: T-2nd
  • Points Per Game: 6th

You can argue that the Bucs offense should be ranked #1, but the Andy Reid-led bunch makes a compelling case.

Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback on the planet, period, end of story. Travis Kelce is head and shoulders above all other tight ends, and Tyreek Hill is the most electrifying WR in the game.

The major concern heading into the offseason was a battered offensive line that got bullied in the Super Bowl. Rest assured that won’t happen again.

The revamping of the O-Line process started with signing Joe Thuney and Austin Blythe. It then transitioned into convincing Kyle Long to come out of retirement. The culmination was when KC traded for Orlando Brown and drafted Creed Humphrey.

All signs are pointing toward the Chiefs offense being scary good in 2021.

Power Ranking Every Offense in the NFL in 2021

A lot of these NFL offensive power rankings are chalky. Slotting the Chiefs and Buccaneers out in front with the Texans and Lions bringing up the rear is common and difficult to dispute.

Inserting the Jaguars ahead of the Steelers and the Chargers ahead of the Cowboys – those are a little more obscure.

Of course, evaluating NFL offenses only accounts for what happens on one side of the ball.

Here is a deep dive into what my defensive power rankings look like leading into the summer.
