Who wins the division? Team records? Anybody getting a wildcard from this division?
The Packers should take this one. All I can say for certain is that the Vikings will finish last.
GB first, Det. &Chi. fighting for wild cards.
Packers win the division. Lions will battle for a wild card spot. Chicago has a shot to be a decent team as well.
My thoughts are the same, second place is up in the air between Detroit and Chicago.

I'll take the Bears to surprise...
I thought they were playing the best football in the NFC prior to the Forte and Cutler injuries ruining their season. They were 7-3 and riding a 5-game win streak at that point. I like the moves they made in the off-season, adding Marshall to give them a stud on the outside and Bush to provide some big time quality behind Forte (especially crucial for a team that wants to run the ball). The defense is always solid, if not one of the best in the league. And, they have a game-changer in the return game.
Detroit is not to be overlooked as well. If they find a respectable running game, it changes everything for them, IMO. Opens up the offense a little more and would benefit the defense as well.
As somebody already said, I think Minnesota will finish last. I'm most confident in that guess.
I agree on Chicago. Though I guess you could argue the Packers were playing the best ball at the time of Forte and Cutler's injuries. You could definitely say they were the 2nd best NFC team at that point. Many keep forgetting they were rolling. Cutler appeared to have figured it out. And do not forget they were in the NFC title game just the season before.

With that said I think Chicago will have a shot at being a good team this year. I like the addition of Marshall as long as he keeps his head on straight.
Don't get too far out on the limb there...
