2016 NFL Projections: The NFC North

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers
The Packers were a little disappointing last season, seeing their offensive figures drop into the bottom half of the league in nearly all categories.

Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton broke out in a big way last season, turning in a season where he scored 45 total touchdowns, and did it in a year where he lost his top receiver to a preseason injury.

Arizona Cardinals
Bruce Arians has done marvelous work out in the desert, transforming the Cardinals from one of the league’s worst into a model of consistency. Arians has complied a 35-16 record in three seasons, and overtook the Seahawks for the division crown a year ago.

The first-team defense turned in a great performance during Thursday night’s game against the Steelers.

Jacksonville Jaguars
It’s taken time, but Gus Bradley’s Jaguars may finally be ready to turn the corner.
The Jags have developed a very impressive core of young talent, headed by young quarterback Blake Bortles. Bortles threw for over 4,400 yards and 35 touchdowns, though his interception total was still a little high at 18. Entering his third […]

Ben Roethlisberger, Thomas Welch

Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have endured a transition period, and are ready to assert themselves to the top of the AFC North.
Ben Roethlisberger remains an elite quarterback, though durability has been a bit of a problem. He’ll get a little more protection this season with the return of center Maurkice Pouncey, who missed all of 2015 […]
