2008 NFC North Preview

Mike DiMauroSenior Writer IJune 24, 2008

I think since everyone else is predicting on how the NFL teams will do in the 2008 season, I think it's my turn. I will do an article for each division and then an article for the playoffs. Here we go:

This article, I will tell you my predictions for the NFC North.


2008 Final Standings:

Minnesota Vikings: 9-7

Detroit Lions: 8-8

Green Bay Packers: 7-9

Chicago Bears: 6-10


The Vikings will be ready to win the title this year. It will be very close in the NFC North.

Until they can prove to me that they can be a good team, I am not going to give the Lions a winning record.

They were 6-2 before they fell and finished at 7-9. The Lions will be a .500 team this year and expect them to have a chance at the wild card in 2009.

Aaron Rodgers will have shoes too big to fill for the Packers to repeat as NFC North champs.

The Bears will continue the Superbowl hangover that they have from Superbowl XLI. They also have a QB problem that they need to fill.
