What are the biggest issues still facing the four teams in the NFC North?
In a 2020 NFL offseason that has been unlike any other, the 32 teams around the league are perhaps facing more uncertainty than in a normal year. With no offseason workouts and, thus, limited time to prepare for the season, there is more left to the imagination. But while that may be true for all teams, the four teams in the NFC North may be the most intriguing of the bunch.
After looking at the questions for the teams in the AFC East, NFC East and AFC North, the always-interesting NFC North is on tap in a series identifying the big questions that every NFL team needs to answer for the 2020 season.
A year ago, the division was won by the Green Bay Packers, who under first-time NFL head coach Matt LaFleur finished 13-3 and reached the NFC title game. Mike Zimmer returns for his seventh season as leader of the Minnesota Vikings.
Meanwhile, both Matt Nagy and Matt Patricia begin their third years with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions, respectively. The latter was the only team in the division to finish with a losing record this past season.
So what are the biggest issues for each of the four clubs in the NFC North? There’s now less than three months before the start of NFL 2020 and lots of work to be done by each organization.
NOTE: Teams are listed in order of finish in 2019.
