BACK TO PACK

 

Green Bay used a deadly offensive attack and opportunistic defense to win the NFC North again. The Bears found life at the end of the year to sneak into the Playoffs, while the Vikings came up short and Detroit was bad again.

NFC NORTH 
GREEN BAY PACKERS

All world Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a career year and regained his MVP form to spear head a potent offense that scored enough points to cover for a defense that had trouble playing consistently at a high level.

CHICAGO BEARS

The Bears had an interesting season and made the Playoffs but mediocrity is the word that comes to mind. On offense David Montgomery & Allen Robinson stepped their games up but the Quarterback carousel and defensive inconsistency can't be ignored

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

Minnesota lost alot of talent this off-season, severing ties with many long time Vikings who were largely responsible for the teams 2017 NFC Championship game appearance. On top of that, two of their top defensive players missed most of the season, leaving the Vikings too short handed for Quarterback Kirk Cousins to overcome.

DETROIT LIONS 

In Detroit, things went on as usual and that's not a compliment. An inconsistent running game and bad defense have haunted the Lions for far too long and it plagued them again year, which led to Matt Patricia being relieved of his Head Coaching duties.
