NFC North Team Previews and Predictions

The NFC North was one of the strongest divisions in the league last season. The Packers ran away with the division with a league-best record of 15-1. One of the biggest stories of the year was the resurgence of the Detroit Lions. Jim Schwartz's club went 10-6 and clinched the team's first playoff berth since 1999. The Chicago Bears had one of the toughest defenses in the league but derailed after Jay Cutler and Matt Forte were lost for the season. The Vikings lost their franchise player, Adrian Peterson, on Christmas Eve when he tore his ACL.

Can the Packers make enough improvements on defense to get back to the Super Bowl? Will the addition of Brandon Marshall give the Bears the weapon they need to make a playoff run? How will Detroit respond to the success of last season? Will Christian Ponder be good enough to lead the Vikings offense as Peterson recovers? My NFC North preview will answer these questions and more.
