Way Too Early NFL Predictions: NFC North

Carter Gauthier

NFC North

The Packers lost Davante Adams in a trade with the Raiders. This team is in all sorts of places. They decided to resign Rodgers to keep him locked up for a couple more years, and shortly after, they traded the best receiver in the league, Adams. The team chemistry won’t be there this year in Green Bay as the Packers are imminent to have a down year. Considering the Packers have a terribly inexperienced wide receiver room, they picked up Sammy Watkins and drafted another one too.

The Vikings are sticking to Kirk. This is interesting considering this might be Thielins last productive season as he approaches age 32. Kirk needs to have his best season this year because if not, he could be out the door with little to no hesitation next year. Justin Jefferson can prove he is undoubtedly a top 3 wider receiver. Their secondary is questionable, but can possibly produce highly.

The Bears are a team that could either make a surprise playoff push or be one of the worst teams in the league. We will see how the firing of Nagy will change the atmosphere in Chicago. Fields can possibly prove that he is the best quarterback in last year’s draft, and produce at a high level. Expect Jaylon Johnson to have a breakout season in Chicago.

The Lions can prove that Dan Cambell is a top-tier head coach in the league as last year he really coached them well considering their roster. Jared Goff has to get back on track as he can soon possibly see his way out of the NFL as he continues to degrees. Tracy Walker III will break out heavily this year as he plays for a bigger contract.
