For the first time in his NFL career, Matthew Stafford will be playing for a team other than the Detroit Lions when the 2021 NFL season kicks off as he has been traded to the Los Angeles Rams for Jared Goff and a trio of draft picks.
Stafford will be joining a team that is solid all around and many believe the Rams will at least challenge for a Super Bowl appearance this coming season.
Because of that, it is not a huge surprise that Stafford, according to @Betonline_ag is among the favorites to win the NFL MVP award in 2021.
