We have arrived at the halfway point of the NFL season. Here’s a brief rundown of who are contenders, outsiders and are planning for next season.
1. Green Bay Packers
Yes, they were 13-3 last year, but they overachieved. As long as QB Aaron Rodgers stays healthy they will remain contenders.
2. Minnesota Vikings
The defense has been overhauled with many departures, but head coach Mike Zimmer has a good scheme that has stood the test of time.
3. Chicago Bears
Even if they decide at some point to make a change at QB they won’t be any better than a .500 team.
4. Detroit Lions
Head coach Matt Patricia hasn’t improved this team since being hired 3 seasons ago and GM Bob Quinn won’t survive either with another losing season.
