How do the Packers compare to their division rivals at each position?
Week 1 of the 2020 regular season is here and the Green Bay Packers are set for a tough defense of their NFC North title.
Today, we’re looking at how each team in the division ranks by position groups.
We’ll start with the quarterbacks and work through each position. How do the Packers compare to the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, and Detroit Lions?
The Packers are still number one at quarterback as long as Aaron Rodgers is throwing passes at Lambeau Field. Rodgers is still the best passer in the division and the Packers also have their deepest quarterback room in recent memory.
Kirk Cousins is coming off an impressive season. He completed just under 70 percent of his passes for 3,603 yards, 26 touchdowns, and only six interceptions. The Vikings will be competitive if Cousins can replicate those numbers.
Matthew Stafford made a fast start to the 2019 season before getting hurt. Playing in only eight games, he was on pace for 4,998 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Injury cost Stafford half the season and the Lions struggled. They need him healthy this year.
If you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks. After trading a fourth-rounder for Nick Foles, he’ll surprisingly start the season as the backup to Mitch Trubisky. The question is how long will that last?
