Green Bay Packers’ fans might try and down play their rivalry with the Chicago Bears, but make no mistake about it, the Bears vs the Packers is the premier rivalry in the NFC North. The Packers have been the class of the division in recent history, so it’s been a one-sided rivalry, but they have also gotten the better of the Vikings and Lions.

When you have back-to-back Hall of Fame quarterbacks your chances to win are drastically increased.

Since 1992 (Brett Favre’s first year as QB) through 2017 (Aaron Rodgers’ most recent season), the Packers have finished either 1st or 2nd in the NFC North* 20 times, with two Super Bowl titles to boot.

(*It was the NFC Central until 2001 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the fifth team.)

In those 26 years, the Vikings have finished 1st or 2nd in the division 17 times.

The Lions and the Bears were either 1st or 2nd in the division 6 different times during the Favre-Rodgers era.

Vikings’ fans will tell you their most hated team is the Packers, and Lions’ fans hate the Bears. but Bears vs Packers is special. It’s a shame that the recent rivalry hasn’t been.
