Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are teams on the rise. The latter battled against all odds to win the Super Bowl LV title against the Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium in February.

It’s no secret that Tom Brady is the driving force behind the Patriots and the Buccaneers. But one team who is finding it hard to maintain its relevance in recent years is the Jerry Jones-owned Dallas Cowboys.

The NFC East franchise last won the Super Bowl in 1996. Fondly known as America’s Team, the Cowboys will be in the mix to make the Playoffs in 2021. But whether they manage to achieve that remains to be seen.
