Season summary: A rough season for Noble and his Bears. Their record however is slightly deceiving. Many of the Bears losses were close and they dealt with injuries all year as well. With 2 dominate pass rushers now in their front 7 the Bears well head into the offseason loaded on defense and ready to bounce back from a rough season 3.

Playoff outlook: None.

Season summary:

Really disappointing sums this season up pretty well. When you make the super bowl 2 seasons ago, you carry a certain expectation with you into every season following. Especially when the roster has been drastically improving each year. However, the Lions struggled to live up to any expectations this year and just never found a groove on offense or defense. It’ll be back to the drawing board in the offseason, but you have to think that the Lions will be able to come back next season and contend again. They have superstar playmakers all over the offense and a very solid defense all around, so the lack of success this year is a mystery and they won’t be shedding the early season expectations any time soon.

 

Playoff outlook:

The playoff hopes for the Lions died many weeks ago. The NFC is way too deep across the board to be able to get into the playoffs as a wild card with less than 10 wins. The Lions have so many young players on their roster and they have the coaching staff to compete with anyone. But it’s been a fast fall from grace for a team that made the super bowl 2 seasons ago with a much less talented lineup. You can never count out coach Cook from being able to turn this ship around.

 

Remaining Opponents:

  • Week 14: Cowboys (5-7)
  • Week 15: Bears (3-9)
  • Week 16: Panthers (6-6)
  • Week 17: Cardinals (8-4)

  • Points allowed per game: 5th (24 ppg)

 

Season summary:

The Vikings are just consistent and know how to win. Finishing games is something that coach Zstar just knows how to do. It isn’t flashy, and if you look at the team stats and where they rank in yardage categories, you would probably think they’re a 5-7 football team. But the Vikings prove you don’t need to have a prolific offense or smothering defense to win consistently. The Vikings control the clock, take care of the football, and manage end-of-game scenarios better than anyone. It’ll still have to be proven that they can get to a super bowl and survive the NFC Playoff bracket without a solid passing attack. If they can keep Dalvin Cook and Chris Carson healthy down the final stretch of the season, then they can ride that double headed monster all the way to a super bowl title.

 

Playoff outlook:

The Vikings are in prime position to win their Division and the #2 seed in the NFC. The Vikings are tied with the 2nd best record in the NFC right now with 3 opponents they’ll be heavily favored over leading into the season finale matchup in week 17 with the 9-3 Eagles. It’ll be awesome for everyone in the league watching if both teams head into week 17 at 12-3 to battle for 2nd place. 

 

Remaining Opponents:

  • Week 14: Seahawks (7-5)
  • Week 15: Packers (3-9)
  • Week 16: Bears (3-9)
  • Week 17: Eagles (9-3)
