With the New England Patriots looking to bounce back from a difficult 2020 season, one former member is making a prediction as to how the team will do this year.

Former Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich offered up his prediction on Get Up! Thursday. He believes that because of all the new offseason additions, New England will have a greater chance of success for 2021. With a retooled offensive line and a complete overhaul of the tight end position, things could indeed look different for New England in 2021.

In the meantime, Ninkovich is going with a high win total for the Patriots, in a complete turnaround from last year.

“Well, with them spending about $200 million in free agency, I think that they’re going to have a successful year,” Ninkovich said. “I’m going with 11 wins. They’re going to be 11-6. They’re going to be right back in the mix for the division. I think they might split between Miami and Buffalo. They’re going to have a couple rough games on the road, going out to LA. So, I’m going 11-6 for the Patriots.”

With a tight AFC East division very much apparent, New England will certainly have its work cut out for them. After a subpar 2020 season, it’s refreshing to some to hear optimism.
