Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

These FanPulse surveys are really quick to do — a few questions that take like a minute to answer sent right to your email — but they provide some interesting data for us to share. This week, there was a special extra survey question sent to all fans of NFC North teams. SB Nation wanted to know which team we thought was the best team in the division.

Not surprising, most fanbases went with their own team as the best in the NFC North, with the lone exception being fans from the Detroit Lions who believe their team is second best.

The Minnesota Vikings received the most praise by our division’s fans, and the Lions are thought to be the worst team in the NFC North by everyone except those that cheer for Detroit.

Check out the info-graphics with the final tallies.

Chicago Bears

Technically speaking, the 2-1 Bears are the best team in the division, so you can’t falut Bears’ fans for riding that high.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings’ main rival are the Packers, so I wonder how much of them refusing to vote for Green Bay is personal?

Green Bay Packers

Not a single vote for the Lions?

You just know there are some thin-skinned Lions’ fans somewhere scheming up a catchy hashtag to attack Packers’ fans through social media.

Detroit Lions

Even Lions’ fans think their FanPulse voting this week is pathetic.

What are your thoughts on the best team in the division?
