The NFC North is going to be one of the top divisions in the league heading into 2020. The Green Bay Packers were the division champions in 2019 and made a run to the NFC Championship Game. This season, the competition will be back at a high level with the Chicago Bears, Detriot Lions, and Minnesota Vikings in the mix.
The Packers will be one of the top teams in the league once again with Aaron Rodgers still under center. Coming off an impressive 13-3 record and an appearance in the NFC Championship Game, Green Bay will be heavy in the mix once again to win the NFC North in 2020.
The Vikings are expected to take a step forward and compete for a division title. After a Wild Card win over the New Orleans Saints in 2019, Minnesota believes that they are ready to be a championship contender. These will be the top two teams in the NFC North and they both improved from a season ago.
The Bears enter the 2020 season with a big question mark under center. They acquired Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars to back up Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears will not be contenders until they figure out the quarterback situation. As for the Lions, they had a top three picks in the draft and will have Matthew Stafford back after he missed eight games a season ago.
The NFC North will once again be a powerhouse in the conference. There have been some strong moves made by teams to improve.
With that being said, let’s take a look at the five best offseason moves made in the NFC North. Spoiler alert, the Packers trading up to draft Jordan Love did not make the list.
