The four teams of the NFC North, the oldest division in the NFL, have been beating on each other for a long time, ever since the Vikings joined the league in 1961.
This is the famed "black-and-blue" division with some of the oldest and most tradition-soaked teams in the league and, not coincidentally, the winningest.
Then, there are the Lions. the only team in NFL history to go winless in a 16-game season. That was in 2008. Remember quarterbacks Jon Kitna and Dan Orlovsky?
History won't quite repeat itself this year, as the Lions will again be bad, but not that bad.
