Green Bay Packers Predictions

The NFC North has belonged to the Green Bay Packers for the better part of a decade, but the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings are waiting in the corner trying to dethrone Aaron Rodgers and his teammates.

Last year, the Vikings and Lions looked like they were going to be the top two teams in the division, but the Packers rallied late in the season, winning their last six games and taking the division title for the seventh time in 10 years.

How will the 2018 Packers fare this season? Find out in our NFC North NFL predictions and preview.

Chicago Bears
The Bears didn’t have a good offseason and are likely going to finish at the bottom of the division. Chicago is projected to win 5.5 games this season, but that might be generous considering the team lost its starting quarterback and best wide receiver.

Rookie Mitch Trubisky will take over as the team’s starting quarterback, but Chicago fans should expect some growing pains before the team is ready to compete for the division.

Detroit Lions
The Lions came close to winning the division last year, which was surprising since quarterback Matthew Stafford’s best offensive weapon, Calvin Johnson retired during the previous offseason. The Lions are a good offensive team, but their defense will need to play better if they are to be considered a legitimate contender.

Detroit is projected to win eight games, but I expect them to win more than that.

Green Bay Packers
The Packers know their window to win another Super Bowl is closing, so the team made sure to surround Aaron Rodgers with enough weapons to help him win games. The Packers also spent the offseason trying to fix their defense so it will be interesting to see how good they are this year.

The Packers are projected to win 10 games, and with the firepower they have, I don’t see why they shouldn’t win more.

Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings might be the most difficult team to predict in the division. They had one of the best defenses in the NFL last year, but their offense wasn’t very good or consistent.

Rookie running back Dalvin Cook could be this year’s Ezekiel Elliot, but with Teddy Bridgewater still recovering from last year’s season ending injury, Sam Bradford will once again be thrust into the starting lineup, which didn’t work out very well for the team last year.

The Vikings are projected to win 8.5 games, but I don’t see them winning more than eight games.

Even though they will face some competition from the Lions, the Packers are still going to be the kings of the NFC North.
