NFC North: Who will finish atop the division?
Posted: October 18, 2008 by twinsfan21 in Uncategorized
This season has had its up and downs for these four division teams. It all started in Week 1 when the Packers outlasted the Vikings on Monday Night Football. Aaron Rodgers showed he his capable of leading the Packers, and even though they have lost three straight games, A-Rod has shown that he is tough, and can handle being a starting NFL quarterback.
The Bears, are leading the division at this point in the division at 3-2. Kyle Orton has solidified the starting quarterback position, and their defense has been excellent. Going into the season no one knew what to think about the Bears, two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance.
The Vikings started the season with a loss, but now have gotten within one game of .500. Adrian Peterson has looked pretty good, but the quarterback position has really made their chances at a playoff berth suffer. Their defense has pretty much carried them. Antoine Winfield has established himself has one of the best cornerbacks in the league.
The Detroit Lions are currently win-less, and coming off a big loss to the Bears. Jon Kitna is hurt, and Dan Orlovsky will start for them Sunday. Earlier in the season, the Lions fired Matt Millen, hoping that maybe now they can begin winning.
Now tune into the rest of the season and see how this division turns out.
