NFL Preview Through Uniforms: NFC North

AFC East NFC East AFC West NFC West AFC South NFC South AFC North

Here we are ladies and gentlemen, We have made it all the way through the league and stand at the door of the Black and Blue Division: the NFC North. The beginnings of professional football were made here.

Tough defensive football when you think of these teams – Bears, Lions, Packers, and Vikings. Also something in common is the timelessness of all the uniforms. Obviously, if you know me, the bottom and top spots are locked in and pre-determined. This is a race for second and third honest.

4. Green Bay Packers

I’m not wasting your time, nor am I wasting mine. Terrible.

3. Detroit Lions

I chose to put the Lions in the three spot because they have made a couple changes lately. I don’t want to say they are bad changes because they aren’t bad. The color is unique and blends well. The all grey alternate really isn’t bad either. I just miss the old school lion logo. The one without the flow in the lion. That logo I have an affinity for because it actually took me longer than I would like to admit to figure out the two paws up were not the lions mouth. This one makes it easier to make out the details of the lion and I just liked the challenge and knowing I was an idiot.

2. Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings look is so awesome to me. I love the colors and I love the horns on the helmets. They resemble actual Viking helmets, which helps sell the point. They have unique numbers. I don’t hate the all purple alternate. Also, their stadium on the outside actually resembles a Viking ship. I don’t know if that factors into the uniforms, but I just would like to point that out.

1. Chicago Bears

Of course I saved the best for last. If I need to explain any further, you need to read more of these blogs and listen to the podcast. You need to know me.

Actual Prediction:

I think we all know what’s going to happen here… I will say the Bears and Vikings COULD compete in the wild card race, but it would take a lot of impressive wins to do so. The Lions, I hope, will have a fun season too.
