NFC North Preview

The Green Bay Packers are the favorites, again, and should reach the NFC Championship Game.  The Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions should fight for a wild card spot in the NFC while the Chicago Bears will have a weekly debate on if it is time to turn the team over to Mitchell Trubisky .

In The Division

The Packers are 4-2 against the Vikings & Lions in their last 6 meetings.  They average 36 points per game in their 5 wins against the Bears since 2014.

Detroit heads to New York (Giants), New Orleans, Baltimore, Tampa Bay and Cincinnati this year.

The Bears only back-to-back road games are in weeks 14-15.

At Home

The Packers week 1 matchup with the Seahawks will be their toughest home game, outside of the division, but they also host the Bengals, Saints and Bucs.  Three of their first 4 games are at Lambeau Field.

Minnesota also gets three of their first four games at home and like Green Bay, will host New Orleans, Tampa Bay and Cincinnati.
