Green Bay Packers
The Packers are coming off a 6-9-1 season that saw them finish 3rd overall in the NFC North. Naturally, the organization missed out on the playoffs, marking the second straight season they failed to do so. All in all, anyone who had watched Green Bay over the last couple of years knew something was wrong. From a disgruntled Aaron Rodgers on the field, to the blatant lack of results, this team was simply not living up to expectations. Some offseason stories attempted to dissect what went wrong with the organization. Although there is no nationwide consensus, it’s clear that McCarthy was not living up to his duties which led to Rodgers trying to take more and more control of a flailing offense. Now Matt LaFleur has stepped in and it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing. LaFleur is naturally trying to establish his offense but it seems Rodgers is begrudged to give up his ability to change the play at the line. Heading into the season there’s no telling what to expect out of Green Bay.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (4,442 passing yards, 25 TD, 2 INT), Aaron Jones (728 rushing yards, 8 TD, 1 F), and Davante Adams (1,386 receiving yards, 13 TD, 111 REC).
As aforementioned, the Bears are coming off a highly successful 12-4 record that saw them lay claim to the NFC North. Despite a season long’s worth of success, Chicago was promptly eliminated from the playoffs by the Philadelphia Eagles 16-15. It was a hard fought game but it proved that the Bears have plenty of room to improve. All in all it’s clear the club is happy with the job Matt Nagy is doing and will be looking to build off of last year’s success this time around.
Players to Watch: Mitchell Trubisky (3,223 passing yards, 24 TD, 12 INT), Tarik Cohen (444 rushing yards, 9 TD, 2 F), and Allen Robinson (754 receiving yards, 4 TD, 55 REC).
