Who Will Win the NFC North?
The NFC North certainly hasn’t turned out the way people expected it to when the season began. Injuries to key players such as Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley have hindered the Green Bay Packers. The Chicago Bears looked decent, but Mike Martz seems unconcerned about the wellbeing of Jay Cutler. The Detroit Lions still aren’t good, but they can hold their own against any team in the league. Then, there is the Minnesota Vikings, perhaps the most disappointing team in the league. So, which team ends up winning this division?
Well, the Lions can be ruled out, even though they do look like a team on the rise. The Bears got off to a pretty good start, but have faltered recently. Their offense does not look good at all. The Vikings also appear to be a mess. Brett Favre is all banged up, and they traded for Randy Moss before releasing him shortly afterward. Their defensive line isn’t what it used to be. They don’t look like a team able to come back from their poor start.
That leaves the Green Bay Packers, who Sportsbook has as the clear favorite to win the division. That certainly looks like a wise choice. They may have injury issues on offense, but they still have Aaron Rodgers under center. Plus, their defense is looking really good. The NFC North hasn’t been as competitive as many thought heading into the season, but the Packers will take their division title crown regardless.
