2018 NFL predictions: Who will win the NFC North? The NFL is already underway Trey Flowers Jersey , but the NFC North games don’t begin until Sunday, and you can already tell the league knows it’s going to be a hell of a division. Three teams from the Black and Blue division will be playing in primetime in Week 1, and, oddly, the one team that isn’t—the Minnesota Vikings—are the ones that are defending champions. So who will come out of this competitive division come January? Who will be hosting a home game in the postseason and who will be left at home to watch? Here are our staff’s predictions for the NFC North champion in 2018. Justin SimonMinnesota. Their roster is stacked and Kirk Cousins is good enough to carry them to ten or more wins. The Packers are always a threat with Aaron Rodgers, but their overall roster is nowhere close to the Vikings. Levi BlueIn my opinion, this is one of the most, if not the most competitive divisions in the NFL. If the Lions were playing in another division, I’d say the division title is within reach. Unfortunately that’s not the case. The Packers are going to win... again. People are going to discount the Lions... again. But for crying out loud, I hope I’m wrong and we can retake the division crown for the first time since ‘93!Kellie RoweWhile I’d love to believe the Lions have a chance at winning the NFC North, realistically I think it’s going to be an adjustment year for Detroit that concludes with a slightly above-mediocre record. Captain Kirk Cousins has arrived in Minnesota*, and coupled with the dangerous secondary duo Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, they have a good shot of taking the stacked NFC North. Coming off a 13-3 season and retaining a top-five NFL defense Levine Toilolo Jersey White , the Vikings have a loaded roster with the newly acquired cornerback Mike Hughes and offensive tackle in Brian O’Neill.*For those of you who don’t know, I’m a Kirk person. (Though Vikes pick has nothing to do with that.) The robot nerd from Michigan who bleeds green is just so dorky dad at a BBQ and awkward he’s hard not to love. So as you can understand, his transfer to an enemy team was nothing less than devastating. I’ve yet to take a purple sharpie to my Washington jersey but a lil too much whiskey one Sunday... Yeah, yeah I’ll be sure an adult’s there with a camera. #contentChris PerfettGreen Bay Packers. YOU THOUGHT WHAT.Mike PaytonSadly at this point I don’t believe it be the Lions. But if you hate the Bears and the Packers, you’ll be happy to know it wound be them either. The division belongs to the Vikings right now. They have a questionable quarterback, in my opinion, but they’re stacked everywhere else. Especially that defense. They’re going to be a tough out for everyone in 2018. Ryan MathewsMinnesota Vikings.They’re the best team on both sides of the ball. Green Bay has the best quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, and Detroit’s boasts a better offensive line, but the Vikings are set up for success through the air and on the ground should Dalvin Cook manage to stay healthy for the season. After the Khalil Mack trade, the Chicago Bears’ defense has been the talk of the Twittersphere, but make no mistake, the Vikings’ defense is the toast of not only the NFC North, but they stack up with the best units in football.Mansur ShaheenThe Vikings. Kirk Cousins is better than you think he is. That defense has a star player in all 11 positions. An elite receiving duo and a great RB returns to action this season. The Vikings are legitimate Super Bowl contenders this year and it will be a disappointment for them if they cannot handily win the NFC North this year. John WhiticarMinnesota Vikings.Whether or not you believe that the Vikings improved with the signing of Kirk Cousins http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-devon-kennard-jersey , it is hard to deny that they are the frontrunners for the division title. Between Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and a healthy Dalvin Cook, they aren’t lacking skilled weapons. The key to their success will be the defense. They have an incredible front seven and a talented secondary to match.Hamza BaccoucheGreen Bay PackersI’m not sold on Kirk Cousins to the Minnesota Vikings; I think Cousins was a great fit in Jay Gruden’s offense and Case Keenum was a product of Pat Shurmur’s brain. On top of that, the Vikings defense was immune to the injury bug last year and that doesn’t happen twice in this league. That isn’t to say they’ll be bad, but I don’t think they will be anywhere near as dominant as they were last year. Kyle YostGreen Bay. Minnesota is a scary team, but they overperformed a bit last season and still have questions along the offensive line. Meanwhile, the Packers’ 2017 season was basically meaningless without Aaron Rodgers, and his return should raise the production of the whole offensive. The Vikings’ defense is better on paper, but the Packers D is competent enough to give Rodgers the help he needs.Kent Lee PlatteNot quite in the mood to write about one of the Lions foes so I’ll keep it short. Hot take: Minnesota did NOT get better repacking Case Keenum with Kirk Cousins. Unfortunately though they get big upgrade in the return of the electric Dalvin Cook and have a scary defense. The division still probably resides in the Land of Prince.Jeremy ReismanI’ve been trying to tell y’all about the Vikings for the past three years, and now finally every seems to understand just how good that defense is. Throw in an offense that promises to be much more balanced this year, and you’ve got one of the most well-rounded teams in the NFL. Yes, there are offensive line concerns http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-calvin-johnson-jersey , but we’ve seen Minny overperform there with limited talent—they are the opposite of the Lions in that regard.Film Room: How Kerryon Johnson, the Lions offensive line, reached the century mark vs. Patriots It took 70 games, but the Detroit Lions finally had a player run for 100 yards in a single game last Sunday. Rookie Kerryon Johnson ran for 101 yards on 16 carries and was crucial in the Lions upset win. The Auburn product showed off his amazing vision and open-field running abilities on Sunday night. He took advantage of any opportunity the Patriots gave him. His excellent patience, vision and football IQ were on full display. Johnson did a great job reading his blocks and knew when he needed to cut back. He was fully aware of where his running lanes were and did a great job reading his blocks.The running back’s vision and patience were his most heralded skills coming out of college. Detroit has made a huge investment into their offensive line and needed a great running back with the skill to take advantage of the space that the run blocking could create for him.Detroit’s run blocking isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t need to be with the rookie in the backfield. Even when the run blocking failed him, Johnson still managed to make plays. His smart, shifty running makes him incredibly slippery in the backfield.As great as the running back was on Sunday night, his success would have been impossible without the play of the offensive line. The Lions run blocking was near impenetrable and New England’s defensive front stood no chance. Detroit’s offensive line mauled them up front and were able to open gaping holes for the running back to waltz through. The Lions running game had a rough start to the season but it seems that they have finally gotten going. While we still need more time to tell whether the Lions’ investment upfront will truly pay off, games like last Sunday should give Detroit more confident in their run game—and give opposing defenses another thing to think about in their weekly game planning.To fans, though, the best take away from Sunday’s game may be that they won’t have to hear about that streak 100 times on every broadcast anymore.
