ESPN asked its own panel of experts to project the next three years and determine the best NFL teams over that timeframe. Jeremy Fowler, Louis Riddick, Seth Walder, and Field Yates rated each franchise's roster, draft, front office, and coaching staff to determine their ranking. They weighted each category using a standard grading system (100 is an A+, 90 is an A, 80 is a B, etc.) and averaged them. The San Francisco 49ers came in third with an overall score of 86.4.

The union feels that the risks of COVID-19 outweigh any benefits of playing those games. The two sides may meet somewhere in the middle. Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio is reporting that the league is now proposing a one-week preseason for each team as a lead-up to the regular season. "I was told last week that, very likely, the end result will be one preseason game (per team) featuring teams that are in some geographic proximity," Florio said on Monday.
