    The state of other NFC North teams after week 10

    Vikings.com:
    [size=14pt]NFC North Notebook - 11/12/2008[/size]

    Link: http://www.vikings.com/NewsArticle_N...th_111208.aspx

    Vikings.com takes a look around the rest of the NFC North to see what the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Green Bay Packers have going on…

    Which team do YOU think presents the most challenge to the Minnesota Vikings?

    I would say bears, they've really shown that when healthy they can put points on the board, they're not as good on defense anymore, but then again, we can't seem to play consistantly well on both sides of the ball either.
    Packers could be a threat, but right now the records speak for themselves.
    I expect it will be a race to the finish.

    Bears are the biggest threat

    I went with the bears.





















    Vikings




    Packers



    Bears
    record
















    5-4






    4-5






    5-4
    Remain opponents W/L




    34-29





    27-36





    25-38
    Remain opp under .500





    2








    4








    6

    The vikings have a very tough road ahead. The only teams we face under .500 are Jacksonville and Detroit. The bears have a much easier schedule with the only team above .500 that they will have to play being the Vikings at 5-4. The packers and Bears play each other twice.
    The vikings are gonna need to beat the Bears in the Dome I think to win. Looking at their schedule I would guess the bears win 10 games(losing 1 to the packers and 1 to the vikings).

    Bears are heavily overrated, still they are 'the best of the rest'
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    The Bears that is why we have to hope the Packers can beat them at least once.

    I am so confident in the Vikings taking the NFC North that I refuse to vote.
    OK, I voted for the Lions.
    Because I can't bring myself to vote Chicago or Pack...

    I'll say the Lions for the sake of being a wise-ass.... realistically though the Bears for leading at present in the division and having a reasonable defence and the ability to put points up. I'd say that they are more balanced than the Packers at the moment.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
