The Packers are the clear favorites to win the NFC North even after losing top receiver Jordy Nelson, a favorite of Aaron Rodgers, but anything after that is up for grabs. Former rushing champ Adrian Peterson will be expected to take the Vikings' offense to another level after nearly an entire season on the sidelines as a result of a suspension, while the Lions, who could struggle without Ndamukong Suh, still boast an offense led by Calvin Johnson. The Bears still have maddening quarterback Jay Cutler under center, but a new coach and offensive coordinator could change their outlook for this season.
How will each team finish? Greg Bedard has picked every single game of the NFL regular season, and below are his predictions for the NFC North.
