Last but not least are the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.
The Packers won only 10 regular season games last year before setting off on a playoff journey where they looked unbeatable. This year, if the Packers find themselves battling for the Wild Card spot, something will have gone seriously awry during the regular season.
The Packers offense, led by Aaron Rodgers, has become the best in the NFC, and if you wanted to call them the best in the whole NFL, there would not be much argument outside of New England. What has the rest of the league shaking is the fact that the Packers have actually improved their offense during the offseason.
Aaron Rodgers has pushed himself into consideration for best quarterback in the league. Jermichael Finley, a wide receiver in a tight end's body, is back from injury, and Jordy Nelson emerged as a slot threat in the postseason.
Rodgers has amazing chemistry with All-Pro Greg Jennings. The offensive line gelled during the playoff run. Rogers will not be scraping himself up off the frozen tundra very often this season.
The defense will miss Cullen Jenkins, a space-eater at defensive tackle, but that is hardly a concern for a unit that finished one behind the Steelers in the NFL sack race last season. Clay Matthews is an absolute beast of a pass rusher and A.J. Hawk is a very capable linebacker.
If there is a secondary that could challenge the Eagles, it would be the Packers.
Charles Woodson is still one of the best playmakers in the game. He is a threat to take an interception back for six at any moment. On the other side, Tramon Williams is as good if not better than Woodson.
Outside of New England, no team has a better chance to win 13 games than the Green Bay Packers.
