The NFC North is not as clear-cut as other divisions and will require some homework down the stretch to make bets that may pay off. 

NFC North Game Schedule 2016

It’s been a while — 1993 to be exact — since the Detroit Lions were able to top the NFC North Division. There’s still a lot of football left to play, but as it stands, the Lions could very well snap the skid that’s spanned more than 20 years.

Having only made the post-season twice in the last 15 years, the first-place Lions can very well secure first place with wins against divisional opponents down the stretch. Nov. 24 is a date to mark on your calendar when the Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings, who have faltered after many football experts considered them to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders earlier in the year. It’s the second of two meetings between the rivals and it could also be a determining factor in who takes the division.

The free-falling Vikings dropped four straight contests after opening the season 5-0. Much of that can be pinned to the loss of superstar running back Adrian Peterson, who has been sidelined with a knee injury. Minnesota also has three crucial division games, including a match against the struggling Green Bay Packers on Dec. 24.

You can make the argument that the Vikes have a lighter path to the playoffs, with games against Jacksonville, Indianapolis and the Chicago Bears. While the Lions also have some very winnable contests, they must get through the Saints, Giants and Cowboys — all on the road — in order to win the division.

Green Bay’s final three games of the season will come against division opponents, including a Jan. 1 date with the Lions. If Green Bay can win five of its next six games — and that is certainly a lot to ask — leading up to the game against the Lions, there may be a chance Aaron Rodgers and the Packers can challenge for the division win.

Who Will Win Super Bowl LI

When breaking down the NFC, the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks are the teams to beat.

The Cowboys are running away with the NFC East while the Seattle Seahawks are starting to show shades of the same team that captured the 2014 Super Bowl. In the NFC South, the Atlanta Falcons have powered their way to the top of the division with their potent offense. 

Dallas may have the best record in the conference, but it’s the Seahawks that are favored to come out of the NFC at +550 to win the championship outright. Bet365 is also offering an intriguing +600 line the Cowboys can win their first Super Bowl title since 1996. 

Looking at other NFC possibilities, the Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers — both early season title contenders — haven’t lived up to expectations, but could turn things around with late-season surges.

A NFC dark horse to keep an eye on is the New York Giants, who have quietly pieced together a championship-caliber campaign. Eli Manning and the Giants have a playoff-friendly schedule that still includes games against the Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns. Manning has taken a wild-card Giants team and turned them into Super Bowl champs in the past. The future Hall of Famer is more than capable of repeating history.

Of course, your wagering decisions can be clearer down the stretch just by using the NFC North calendar.
