Maybe one of the easiest division in the NFL... the NFC north consists of Detroit who went 0-16 just a year ago and the Green Bay Packers who also had a bad year after trading Favre to the New York jets. Minnesota and Chicago both battled it out but the vikings came up top do to the inconsistent play of their quarterback.  Adrian Peterson led Minnesota to a 10-6 record and a wild card bid.  With young quarterback Tarvaris Jackson just catching fire the vikings were set to take on a eagles team that just squeezed into the playoffs.  The game was close in tell late in the game a screen pass to Brian Westbrook gave the eagles great field possession. Detroit drafted Matt Stafford with the number one pick in the draft. Green Bay had two first round draft picks which they used to improve their defence.

Minnesota drafted Percy Harvin a speedy receiver from the university of Florida with the twenty second pick.The bears came up with a huge trade in which the brought in pro-bowl quarterback from Denver after he requested a trade.  Lots of people think that Minnesota is just a quarterback away from winning a Superbowl but i think that they need to address the center possession after losing pro-bowl and team captain Matt Birk as he signed with the Ravens.  I think it will come down to Minnesota and Chicago if Minnesota brings in Favre.

But when its all said in done i feel Minnesota's running game will win them the division and they might even get to the conference championship.
