Five bold predictions for the NFC North, including the Packers, in 2020.

The Green Bay Packers are the team to beat in the NFC North after winning the division for the first time in three years last season. But the division is set to be more competitive this year as the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions aim to get back into contention. And with just a few months to go until the 2020 season begins, it’s time to make some bold predictions for this division.

It’s been an interesting offseason, and a unique one due to the coronavirus pandemic.

For the Packers, many of their offseason moves were met with confusion from the fanbase, most notably after trading up in the first round to select Aaron Rodgers’ potential replacement Jordan Love.

The NFC North has seen some talented players depart, such as right tackle Bryan Bulaga, wide receiver Stefon Diggs, and cornerback Darius Slay. How these star players are replaced will be important for each team.

The Packers begin their 2020 regular season against the Vikings. It’ll be an interesting matchup to show which of these two teams should be considered the frontrunners in the NFC North.

It should be an interesting playoff race in the NFC North this year. Here are five bold predictions for the division in 2020.
