Road to Super Bowl 53: NFC North Preview

Entering July, we are officially in the final month of 2018 without football! As team’s prepare to ramp up their game plans on the ‘Road to Super Bowl 53’ in Atlanta in 2019, will the Minnesota Vikings continue to dominate in 2018 with a new quarterback at the helm?

Minnesota Vikings

2017 Record: 13-3, NFC North Champions

The biggest contract awarded in NFL history, the Minnesota Vikings finally have what they feel to be their franchise-defining quarterback ahead of the 2018 season in former Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins. And despite not returning even one quarterback on the roster from the magical 2017 season that saw them one-game from a home-game Super Bowl appearance, the team seems to feel they’ve found the missing piece to make that final leap.

Aside from renovating the quarterbacks room, the Vikings also brought in other key players, namely defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and wide receiver Kendall Wright, and drafting cornerback Mike Hughes out of Central Florida in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.


Detroit Lions

2017 Record: 9-7

After yet another middle-of-the-road season in 2017, the Detroit Lions have a brand new coaching staff and a revamped roster heading into the 2018 NFL season.

Former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia takes the reins in Detroit, bringing a new smash mouth mindset to the team. And the team’s offseason improvements look to bolster that mentality, bringing in players like linebackers Devon Kennard and Christian Jones, cornerbacks DeShawn Shead and Nevin Lawson, running back LeGarrette Blount and re-signing safety Tavon Wilson.


Green Bay Packers

2017 Record: 7-9

A disappointing season for Green Bay began with a collarbone injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers that would eventually sideline the Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion for the majority of the 2017 season. But in 2018, with a brand new look across the board, the Packers are looking to rebound.

Despite losing wide receiver Jordy Nelson, the Packers have seemingly reloaded on offense, bringing in some size in tight ends Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis. On the defensive side of the ball, the team brought in embattled Jets defensive tackle Mo Wilkerson to bolster the front lines, and bolstered the defensive secondary by drafting Jaire Alexander out of Louisville and signin Tramon Williams.


Chicago Bears

2017 Record: 5-11

Another disappointing campaign, another offseason of change, and another year with a brand new head coach at the helm recaps the Chicago Bears of 2017 and 2018. But this time around, the Bears are confident they’ve found the long-term solutions.

The Bears went on a free-agency spending spree after bringing in new head coach, former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. On the offensive side of the ball, Chicago signed wide receivers Allen Robinson (JAX) and Taylor Gabriel (ATL), tight end Trey Burton (PHI). But it appears to be the defensive side where the Bears were looking to retool the most, drafting Alabama linebacker Roquan Smith in the 1st round of the 2018 NFL Draft, bringing in linebackers Sam Acho and Aaron Lynch, and signing a bevy of defensive backs in Prince Amukamara, Kyle Fuller, Sherrick McManis and Marcus Cooper.

2018 NFL Expert Mock Draft: Picks 16-20

As teams get set for the month of April, the next step on the journey toward Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta involves invigorating the team’s rosters with an infusion of youth; the 2018 NFL Draft. We’re gathering some of the top experts from around the NFL world and taking a look at who they predict will go where, continuing with picks 16-20.


#16: Baltimore Ravens

CBS Sports: Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech | Bleacher Report, NFL.com: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

“The Ravens get a great value here in Edmunds, who doesn’t turn 20 until after the draft and has as much upside as any prospect this year. He’s scheme versatile and should be an interesting chess piece for the Ravens’ defense, someone who can line up next to C.J. Mosley inside or potentially be groomed to take over for Terrell Suggs down the road.” – R.J. White, CBS Sports


#17: Los Angeles Chargers

CBS Sports: Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama | Bleacher Report: Connor Williams, OT, Texas | NFL.com: Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

“The first offensive tackle comes off the board at pick No. 17, and he’s an excellent fit and value for the Los Angeles Chargers. An aggressive 2017 draft and the signing of Mike Pouncey has the line in good shape for this year, but the future needs addressing, and Williams can be that left tackle of the present and long-term plan.” – Matt Miller, Bleacher Report


#18: Seattle Seahawks

CBS Sports, NFL.com: Will Hernandez, G, UTEP | Bleacher Report: Derwin James, S, Florida State

“With the loss of DT Sheldon Richardson in free agency, and an obvious rebuild needed on that side of the ball, a pick to help the D makes sense. But, it also makes sense to do more to take care of the team’s No. 1 asset, QB Russell Wilson.” – Charles Davis, NFL.com


#19: Dallas Cowboys

CBS Sports: Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State | Bleacher Report: Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama | NFL.com: Mike Hughes, DB, UCF

“Defense, defense, defense. That’s how the Cowboys’ draft board should read with a wide receiver and offensive guard sprinkled in along the way. Rashaan Evans can do it all—NFL clubs have asked him to play outside linebacker or edge-rusher. In Dallas, he’s a natural to replace departed free agent Anthony Hitchens and adds youth and speed to a defense that’s being rebuilt well through the draft.” –  Matt Miller, Bleacher Report


#20: Detroit Lions

CBS Sports: Josh Jackson, DB, Iowa | Bleacher Report: Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College | NFL.com: Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

“The Lions re-signed Nevin Lawson and brought in Deshawn Shead, but neither should prevent them from selecting a potential starter at the position across from Darius Slay should the right opportunity present itself. Matt Patricia gets a ballhawk with this pick who led the nation in interceptions last year.” – R.J. White, CBS Sports

Indianapolis Colts Update: Preseason, Week 1

The Indianapolis Colts officially kicked off their 2017 NFL campaign on Sunday, in a preseason matchup against the new-look Detroit Lions. A look at what fans can take away from the team’s first on-field action.

In Need of Luck

One thing that was apparent for all fans is the team’s desperate need for quarterback Andrew Luck to take the field. The Colts used three quarterbacks in the game against the Lions, starting with Scott Tolzien before handing the reins to rookie Phillip Walker for the majority of the game, and closing with Stephen Morris. All three quarterbacks combined for a 53.3 percent completion percentage, 178 yards and zero touchdowns.

Despite a “ho hum” performance, coaches gave the majority of the team’s snaps to Walker, hoping to get a good look at a player that players, coaches and reporters have been high on throughout training camp.

Glimmers of Hope

There were several bright spots for the team in Sunday’s game, including a first look for fan’s at a portion of the team’s new-look defensive front seven.

Despite limited action, newcomers Barkevious Mingo and Sean Spence, along with rookies Malik Hooker, Quincy Wilson and Tarell Basham, combined for 17 tackles, one tackle for loss and one turnover, an interception from new outside linebacker John Simon.

An undrafted free-agent out of Akron, wide receiver Bruce “JoJo” Natson was a bright spot for the team on offense, nabbing five of his seven targets for 51 yards. Second-year running back Troymaine Pope was far and above the best running back of the day for the Colts, carrying the ball seven times for 31 yards and the team’s only touchdown of the day.

Post-Game Comments

With the team taking the field for the first time, a lot of potential storylines are bound to develop. However, it was after the game that made the biggest headlines.

Team owner Jim Irsay spoke to the media about quarterback Andrew Luck’s health and rehabilitation from offseason shoulder surgery, giving fans an update they’ve been waiting to hear; he’s throwing a football.

2017 NFL Offseason Headlines: Week of June 12

The “Road to the Super Bowl” begins behind the scenes through the months of June and July for all NFL teams. However, “behind the scenes” can make for quite a boring offseason for football fans everywhere. We’re taking a look at the biggest stories from the week of June 12, 2017, in the league that never sleeps.

Former No. 2 Overall Pick Traded

With the 2nd overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the St. Louis (now Los Angeles) Rams select offensive tackle Greg Robinson out of Auburn. And after just three seasons with the team, Rams general manager Les Snead traded Robinson to the Detroit Lions on Thursday in exchange for a 2018 6th-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Robinson’s arrival in Detroit comes on the heels of an announcement that Detroit’s starting left tackle, Taylor Decker, could miss four to six months with a torn labrum.

2017 No. 1 Pick Myles Garret Sidelined

On Wednesday during the Cleveland Browns’ team minicamp drills, the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Myles Garrett, went down on the field with what would later be revealed as a foot injury, leaving Browns fans to worry about the severity of the injury.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, despite sitting out Thursday’s activities, Garrett is “fine,” and the injury to the linebacker is just a minor setback.


Odell Beckham Jr. Makes Statement with Cleats

After it was reported last week that New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was unhappy with his current contract situation, and the media frenzy surrounding his choice to not attend voluntary offseason organized team activities, Beckham was in attendance for the team’s mandatory minicamps on Tuesday. But per usual with Beckham, it wasn’t without a catch.

The 24-year-old All-Pro wide receiver donned cleats during the practice that seemed to make a nice gesture toward the media, choosing to “let his cleats do the talking.”

2017 Expert NFL Mock Draft (#21-25)

Officially under one week until the 2017 NFL Draft from Philadelphia, we’re taking a look at what experts around the league predict will happen in the first round. Next up: the teams selecting #21-25 next Thursday.

#21: Detroit Lions

CBS Sports: Haason Reddick, LB, Temple | Bleacher Report: David Njoku, TE, Miami (FL) | MMQB: Teez Tabor, DB, Florida

“Lions fans may not want another first-round tight end after the mistake that was Eric Ebron, but it’s hard to look past David Njoku if he’s on the board. It’ll be especially hard for a general manager like Bob Quinn that grew up in the New England system and knows how valuable a game-changing tight end is.” – Matt Miller, Bleacher Report

#22: Miami Dolphins

CBS Sports, MMQB: Takkarist McKinley, OLB/DE, UCLA | Bleacher Report: Haason Reddick, LB, Temple |

“An exceptional athlete who is still rough around the edges, McKinley registered nine sacks last season and for a Dolphins team that ranked 31st in pass rush a year ago, McKinley fills an obvious need. Offseason surgery will keep McKinley sidelines until late summer, but he’ll be worth the wait.” – Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports

#23: New York Giants

CBS Sports, MMQB O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama | Bleacher Report: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan | 

“I get the feeling the Giants would like to draft a quarterback to eventually replace Eli Manning, but this is not the year—or rather, this is not the round. Instead, New York’s front office will decide to maximize the last of the Manning years by giving him a go-to tight end. Howard is every bit as polished and impressive as advertised.” – Emily Kaplan, MMQB

#24: Oakland Raiders

CBS Sports: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama | Bleacher Report: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington | MMQB: Haason Reddick, LB, Temple

“The Raiders ranked 25th in pass defense last season and Humphrey is considered one of the most physical cornerbacks in the draft. His father, Bobby Humphrey, was a first-round draft pick of the Broncos in 1989.” – Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports

#25: Houston Texans

CBS Sports: Cam Robinson, OL, Alabama | Bleacher Report: DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame | MMQB: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

“He’s a total gunslinger with some mechanical and footwork issues to sort out. He’s also the best arm in this draft, no doubt, with some of the special playmaking and leadership qualities scouts gush about when talking about Deshaun Watson. The Texans are a quarterback away from being legit contenders.” – Emily Kaplan, MMQB

Road to Super Bowl LI: Wild Card Weekend

The 2016 NFL Playoffs are finally here! Twelve teams have punched their tickets into the postseason, but only two can make the journey to Houston for Super Bowl LI. Never count out the wild cards, as sometimes, they’re the hottest teams in the league. A preview of what’s to come this weekend during Wild Card Weekend in the NFL.

Oakland Raiders @ Houston Texans (Saturday, 4:35 p.m. ET on ESPN)

Once the trendy pick to reach Super Bowl LI for the AFC, the Oakland Raiders have gone from a potential Super Bowl contender to a struggling wild card team with just one moment: the injury of quarterback Derek Carr. Now, with backup QB Matt McGloin nursing an injured shoulder, the team looks to third-string QB Connor Cook Saturday against the Houston Texans.

Not to be outdone, Houston comes into the playoffs with a quarterbacking controversy of their own, choosing to start the $72 million man Brock Osweiler after benching him in favor of Tom Savage for two games.

Detroit Lions @ Seattle Seahawks (Saturday, 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC)

Two of the hottest teams in the NFC face off on Saturday night, with the Detroit Lions, fresh off a heartbreaking division-loss to the Packers in Week 17, facing the Seattle Seahawks, a team playing well at the right time.

While the Seahawks are no strangers to playoff contention, the Detroit Lions will not only be facing unfamiliar territory in their postseason birth, but also a difficult task in taking on the Seahawks at home in front of thousands at Century Link Field. The Road to Super Bowl LI for the NFC more than likely goes through either Dallas or Atlanta, so the Seahawks will look to take advantage of their home field advantage while they can.

Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS)

The Miami Dolphins, sans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, will head to Pittsburgh on Sunday to face the AFC North champion Steelers. Pittsburgh rested starters Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown Le’Veon Bell in Week 17’s victory over the Cleveland Browns, giving the three-headed monster fresh legs heading into a wild card showdown.

With potential matchups against the Patriots and/or Chiefs looming, the Steelers and Dolphins look to take that first step on the Road to Super Bowl LI.

New York Giants @ Green Bay Packers (Sunday, 4:40 p.m. ET on FOX)

In what is most likely the most-anticipated matchup of the NFL’s Wild Card Weekend, the red-hot Green Bay Packers will match up against the New York Giants, in a matchup of high-flying offenses.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Giants QB Eli Manning will bring their high-powered offenses, featuring the likes of wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Odell Beckham Jr., respectively, to Lambeau Field on Sunday. With frigid temps and a chance of snow, this game has all the makings of an instant Lambeau classic.


Want to check the Super Bowl off your bucket list? Travel packages to Super Bowl LI in Houston are available now! Including some of the most luxurious hotels in Houston, a ticket to the 2017 Players Tailgate featuring America’s favorite chef, Guy Fieri, and a ticket to the big game!

NFL Division Preview: NFC North

The NFC North is in the midst of experiencing a turnover. Let’s take a look at the four teams’ road to Super Bowl LI in Houston.

DivisionPreview (5)

Last Year (2015): Minnesota Vikings (11-5), Green Bay Packers (10-6), Detroit Lions (7-9), Chicago Bears (6-10)

The Minnesota Vikings have experienced exponential growth under head coach Mike Zimmer, and with the offensive core of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and running back Adrain Peterson returning, a strong 2016 NFL Draft class and the momentum of opening a gorgeous new stadium, the Vikings appear to be on par to challenge the Green Bay Packers once again for the division.

The Green Bay Packers were plagued by injuries in 2015, most notably losing wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a knee injury before the season even started. How Nelson looks in his return to action remains to be seen, but with a slimmed down Eddie Lacy returning in the backfield, and with Aaron Rodgers under center, never count the Packers out.

The Detroit Lions suffered their biggest loss of the 2015-16 season in the offseason, losing surefire hall-of-fame wide receiver Calvin Johnson to an early retirement, by NFL standards. The receiver called it quits, leaving QB Matt Stafford with no real threat to target in the red zone.

The Chicago Bears hope that the team can experience a much improved record in head coach John Fox’s second year at the helm. The team will finally welcome 2015 rookie Kevin White at WR after missing the entire season with an injury, and the team has worked to bolster the defense in the offseason.

Prediction; it’s a two-horse race, with the Packers taking the division from the Vikings in 2016.

Excited for the 2016 NFL Regular Season? Us too. That’s why we’ve made all of our tickets for the Colts VIP Tailgates and the 2017 Players Tailgate at Super Bowl LI in Houston available NOW!
