Goody's 2013 NFL Predictions: NFC North

1. Green Bay Packers (11-5): It looks as though the Packers are ready to run the ball more than they have in recent years which should help an offensive line that has a lot of question marks going into the season. The Packers also look to get a little more heat of the QB themselves after drafting Jones in the 1st round.

2. Minnesota Vikings (8-8): The only thing that will hold this team back in 2013 is Christian Ponder. Peterson is Peterson, and drafting Patterson and signing Jennings are huge additions to this offense. This defense will need to generate more turnovers if they want to emulate the success that they had last year.

3. Chicago Bears (7-9): The Bears, as usual, will sink or swim with Jay Cutler and I think his track record speaks for itself. If the Bears do get over that 7 win mark that will mean that they magically figured out how to protect their QB.

4. Detroit Lions (6-10): We all know the Lions have an high powered offense, the addition of Reggie Bush should only make them stronger. Stafford will have to limit his mistakes to make sure the offense operates smoothly which I don't know he's capable of. Losing Fairly on the defensive front loses depth in the only admirable part of this defense.
