Even though the 2021 NFL season is several months away, a bundle of offseason content has been getting fans excited about the next campaign. NFL.com published an article on Wednesday that projects the top 10 offenses in the league next season.

To not many people's surprise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have coming in at No. 1. After all, they're coming off of a Super Bowl victory and were able to bring back a majority of their roster. That includes the likes of Tom Brady and the NFL's best trio of wide receivers in Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Antonio Browns. Considering that core helped the Buccaneers average the 2nd-most points per game in the league last season (30.8), fans should expect more of the same in 2021.

Another two more highly-ranked teams that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone are the Kansas City Chiefs (No. 2) and Green Bay Packers (No. 3). When you have quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers, respectively, on your roster, the offense comes easily. Both signal-callers toppled 4,000 passing yards last season, with Rodgers recording an NFL-leading 48 touchdowns.

The Dallas Cowboys come in at No. 4, which could surprise a few people because of the team's 6-10-0 finish last season. Nevertheless, when Dak Prescott was healthy, the Cowboys looked like one of the NFL's top offenses. The Buffalo Bills complete to top 5 after a season where they averaged 29.9 points per game (3rd).

Another team that might surprise some is the Atlanta Falcons at No. 6. However, it might not be that shocking after all. Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones are one of the top wideout duos in the league as they'll continue to catch passes from QB Matt Ryan. The Falcons even bolstered their offense over the offseason, selecting former Florida Gators tight end Kyle Pitts at No. 5, and also bringing in running back Mike Davis.

The Cleveland Browns (No. 7) will have WR Odell Beckham Jr. back on the field this season after he missed nine games in 2020 due to an ACL tear. Considering how the team had a deep playoff run without him, it's not crazy to think that the Browns will have an even better offense next season.

The Minnesota Vikings (No. 8), Arizona Cardinals (No. 9) and Tennessee Titans (No. 10) round out NFL.com's top 10 projected offenses in 2021. With a handful of months left in the offseason, there's more time for teams to improve their offenses which could lead to a reordering of these projections.
