There are many different divisions in the NFL, and all of them have at least one good team. But which one is the strongest? In my opinion, it is the NFC North.
If you take a look at the NFC North division, there isn't one weak spot to be found. Although the last place Lions had a dismal season finishing 4-12, they could contend for the division title any given year. 2 years ago, they found themselves a playoff spot.
In third place, you have the Chicago Bears at 10-6. I can't imagine how a 10-6 team could possibly come in third, but that's what makes this division so good. In any other division, a 10-6 team would most likely make the playoffs, but because of the strength of the NFC North, the Bears just missed it.
Coming in second place are the 10-6 Minnesota Vikings. Just beating out the Bears by a slim margin last season, the Vikings proved that they were not just a team built upon Adrian Peterson. Great players such as wide receiver Percy Harvin and quarterback Christian Ponder played key roles in the Vikings’ run to the playoffs.
Finally, the best team in this division is the Green Bay Packers. Led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers have always been known as one of the strongest teams in the NFL. The Packers won the Super Bowl just 3 years ago, and 2 years ago, they went 15-1. This team is all about winning and they are always strong contenders for the Lombardi Trophy.
