As the 2020 NFL season continues to draw closer, the NFC North appears to be one of the most competitive divisions in football once again. With the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings being the favorites to win the division title, both the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions improved this offseason.
With the dead period of the NFL offseason upon us, it is time for us to start looking ahead to the season and making some predictions.
Last season, the Packers ended up winning the division with a 13-3 regular season record and a trip to the NFC Championship Game. Minnesota, on the other hand, finished the year with a 10-6 record and upset the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
Many believe the Packers will take a step back this season, which has led many to believe that the NFC North could be wide open. Both the Vikings and Bears are expected to compete. The Lions, while not expected to win the division, are going to be a much tougher team to beat.
All of that being said, let’s make one massive bold prediction for each team in the NFC North division for the 2020 NFL season.
