NFL analytics-crunching site Pro Football Focus doesn’t like the Las Vegas Raiders’ chances of winning the Super Bowl this season.

The site has given the Raiders a three percent chance of winning the Lombardi Trophy to close out the 2021 season. PFF has the Raiders ranked No. 21 overall ... but the good news is, the site likes Las Vegas’ chances of winning it all better than the two teams ranked just above them.

The Chicago Bears, ranked No. 19 by PFF, are given a one percent chance of winning the Super Bowl. The Washington Football Team, ranked No. 20, have a two percent chance of winning it all. So take it for what it is worth.

More good news: AFC West foes, the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers, are ranked No. 22 and No. 23, respectively. The bad news: The Kansas City Chiefs are ranked No. 1.

Let’s just get to the season, already, please.
