59. . . . Miami Dolphins. 3. team

Expect the Saints to win a close one over the Fins.

The Dolphins are a solid team with a great coach. They have one of the game’s good young signal-callers, but they figure to still be looking up at a Buffalo Bills team and a New England Patriots team that will be better in 2021 than it was in 2020.

You can argue that as good as they figure to be (they’ve got some nice weapons on both sides of the ball), the Dolphins might have the third-best roster in the AFC East. Still, the Saints are better than Miami is at most of the important positions including quarterback.

Jameis Winston may never be Drew Brees, but he’s still better than Tua Tagovailoa at this point. Brian Flores is great, but you have to give the edge in coaching to the Saints as well. The game will also be played in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Dolphins aren’t going to be an easy out for anyone, but this should still be one to place in the win column for New Orleans. Expect a close one, but expect the good guys to pull it out in the end.
