Bears have better shot than Vikings to top Packers in NFC North

As the countdown to the NFL season continues the Green Bay Packers are still favored to win the NFC North division.

But which team has the best chance to unseat the defending division champs?

NFL.com's Elliot Harrison believes the Chicago Bears have a better chance than the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions.

"The Bears and Minnesota Vikings are pretty tight. Chicago's defense is stronger, as is its receiving corps (for now). Going further, the Vikes just can't expect Adrian Peterson to rack up 2K again, and Christian Ponder certainly is no Jay Cutler -- at least not yet. So Chicago gets the vote here as Green Bay's toughest challenger. Of course, the Bears' offensive line is still a work in progress. And the defense lost its sideline leader (former defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli) and on-field general (retired linebacker Brian Urlacher)."

Tell us what you think. Are the Vikings, who went 10-6 and made the playoffs last season, going to finish behind the Bears and Packers?
