The inter-division games between NFC North teams are usually wild and offer the chance of a great pay day. Even a big dog can produce the goods at a huge price on game day.

The Chicago Bears are far and away the NFC North’s weakes link. The Bears finished with an abysmal 3-13 record in 2016-17. While that record should improve in coming seasons, they remain favorites to finish at the bottom of the division.
The Minnesota Vikings, after an injury-plagued season, will look to rebound in coming seasons. And they should do exactly that. While they won’t pip Green Bay for the division crown, expect the Vikings to return to the playoffs after last season’s disappointin finish.
Detroit has improved significantly over recent seasons, but we expect the Lions to start regressing. Matthew Stafford is a reliable professional but we cannot see the Lions’ pivot leading his team to Super Bowl glory any time soon.
