It's the first day of 2016 and you have a decision to make: Packers or Vikings? (Open Thread)

Do you want the Vikings to win the NFC North, or the Packers? No, a meteor is not an option...

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to 2016... We hope you arrived safely, and that you're ready to kick off the new year with a tough decision to make:

Who are you rooting for to win the NFC North?

After the Chicago Bears (6-9) and Detroit Lions (6-9) finish playing for last place Sunday afternoon, the Packers (10-5) and Vikings (10-5) will be playing for the divisional crown on Sunday Night Football.

The first time these two teams played, the Packers whipped the Vikings by a score of 30-13.  Each team is 3-2 since that November 22nd match-up, and both have looked pretty good this year. The Packers weren't as dominant as some thought they would be, and the Vikings are a bit better than expected.

So outside of the indications of their first match-up, they seem to be pretty evenly matched.

So for our first Open Thread of 2016, who do you hope wins the North?

Let us know in the comments below.  Have fun!
