Chicago Bears
Odds to win the NFC north division: +10000
Two things are certain in the NFC North this season. Chicago will not place a league-high 19 players on injured reserve and the Bears will not win the division in 2017. First, head coach John Fox will have to figure out which quarterback is going to start. The Bears spent $45 million to get free agent Mike Glennon, who hasn’t started a game since 2014, and then drafted Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in this year’s draft. Rookie quarterbacks usually do not fare too well and Trubisky has all of 13 starts to his name since playing high school football.

 

Chicago started last season 0-3 for the second consecutive year. It’s likely that happens again in 2017. The Bears face Atlanta, Tampa Bay on the road, and Pittsburgh in the first three weeks of the season. A .500 season would be a stretch for Chicago and they are presumably going to finish in the division’s basement again.

Detroit Lions
Odds to win the NFC north division: +400
Green Bay’s primary competition is likely to come from the Detroit Lions, a team that made the playoffs last year. Like Green Bay, Detroit will go as far as its quarterback – Matthew Stafford – takes it. Stafford had one of his best seasons throwing for 4,327 yards and 24 touchdowns. A healthy Ameer Abdullah helps the offense which has plenty of weapons. If draft picks Teez Tabor and Jarrad Davis can step in right away and contribute, the defense will be that much better. The Lions were 9-3 at one point last year but finished the season with four straight losses primarily because of a defense that gave up 377.5 yards and 29 points a game.

Green Bay Packers
Odds to win the NFC north division: -250
Green Bay will continue to be the favorite to win the division as long as QB Aaron Rodgers continues to play. No matter the atrocious Packers defense, with Rodgers running the show on offense there is always a chance. The Packers signed Martellus Bennett and drafted three running backs to help the running game. Ty Montgomery, a former receiver, will now become a full-time running back as well, so Green Bay has plenty of offensive weapons.

 

Defensively, the Packers were weak in the secondary last season. Green Bay was 31st in the NFL in pass defense giving up 269.3 yards per game. Only New Orleans was worse. That will have to change if they Packers are to control the division in 2017.

Minnesota Vikings
Odds to win the NFC north division: +500
The Minnesota Vikings could be the surprise team in the division. Last year, the Vikings battled through some serious adversity to start the season 5-0. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with a serious knee injury in camp and then RB Adrian Peterson (now in New Orleans) suffered a torn meniscus in Week 2. After the successful start to the season, the Vikings won just three more games and became just the sixth team in NFL history to win their first five games and then miss the postseason.

 

Sam Bradford will start at quarterback again after setting a career high last year with 3,877 yards. Bradford was the lone bright spot though on an offense that was 28th in the league in total yards. If the Minnesota defense can get back to its 2015 level, the Vikings may have a shot at a playoff berth. The division title? That’s probably Green Bay’s to lose.
