Do the Lions have a real shot at winning the NFC North after the Aaron Rodgers trade?

With Aaron Rodgers out of the picture. The NFC North just opened up. It’s probably going to come down to the Vikings or the Lions. That means this is the Lions best chance at winning the NFC North since 2014. Back in 2014 the Packers just barely edged out the Lions. But Detroit had an 11-5 record. Ndamukong Suh was terrorizing teams. It was a great year for Lions fans. Which is why it’s exciting that they’ll be back in the hunt. Jared Goff has to build on what he accomplish this past year. He took a big step forward in his second year with the team. If he keeps improving. The Lions might be in the driver seat. Because I do think he’s better than Kirk Cousins. There’s a reason Goff has been to a Super Bowl. With the confidence he has now. The NFC North Championship is within reach for the Lions.
