NFC North: the roundup

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

It was a good week 3 for the NFC North.  Everybody won, and you can’t get too much better than that.

Though to be fair, I’m sure fans of each team wanted the others in the division to lose, but that didn’t happen.

They all got the win and just about solidifying that the division is going to live up to its nickname of the Black and Blue division this year.  Which is always fun.

Let’s head around and check in on the teams!

Preseason may shed some light on a Bears Super Bowl run

The Chicago Bears have a lot to celebrate this season. As one of the oldest franchises in the NFL, the Bears celebrate 100 years of electrifying, heart-stopping plays, both good and bad.

But this year seems different. The Bears won the NFC North division in 2018, after a lack-luster 2017 season. The defense topped the league in an unexpected fashion. But like every off-season, players come and go, whether it be via free agency or trade.

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears meet for the 197th time Sunday night, more than any two teams in NFL history. I’m always surprised at how close these two teams are – the Packers lead this rivalry 96-94-6.

It’s going to be an incredibly exciting game, no matter which team you root for. (#GoPackGo) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is finally back and healthy, and for Bears fans, having linebacker Khalil Mack on the team is the equivalent of Christmas in September.

Here is just a bit of what to watch Sunday night:

Green Bay Packers close out the preseason in Kansas City

It’s been quite the week for Packers fans! Green Bay traded back up quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle on Wednesday, meaning DeShone Kizer will be the No. 2 quarterback this season. In the trade, the Packers received a sixth-round draft pick for 2019.

If you’ve been reading my articles the past few seasons, you know how happy this makes me! I have never had much confidence in Hundley. His lack of consistency has always frustrated me. Perhaps he can perform better for the Seahawks. 

Packers fans hoped he’d learn from QB Aaron Rodgers, but maybe he will work more effectively under QB Russell Wilson. They are a bit more similar in their game-play. Though Kizer went 0-15 last season as a starter in Cleveland, I’ve always wanted him to win the No. 2 QB job in Green Bay. I feel like once Kizer was added, the writing was on the wall for Hundley.

Did you find this trade surprising?
