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. Chicago Bears
Their stout defense will win them a lot of games, but if they want a Super Bowl title the offense will have to be better.
2. Minnesota Vikings
With a bigger emphasis on the running game don’t expect a repeat of last season.
3. Green Bay Packers
If Aaron Rodgers is healthy they will be a playoff contender.
4. Detroit Lions
A lot has to go right for them to clinch a playoff spot, but all the pieces are there for them.
