Five Great Players To Watch In The NFC North

Steve Shoup

If you want to see some NFC North rivalries live and in the flesh by saving big on every ticket, every day via ScoreBig.com, here are five awesome players you’ll get to see in person as a reward.

There are a ton of reasons to buy Chicago Bears tickets, but chief among them is their almost-supernaturally talented receiving tandem, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey. These guys are an unstoppable duo for any opposing defense, having combined for a ridiculous 3,400+ yards since the start of the 2013 season.

Meanwhile, up north in Wisconsin, Green Bay Packer ticket buyers have a stud receiver of their own to brag about: Jordy Nelson. Nelson makes getting open look like child’s play. Just ask the New York Jets, who watched in awe as Nelson torched them for over 200 yards in Week 2.

You think that’s it? Detroit Lion receiver Calvin Johnson might be the best pass-catcher of the bunch! Sure, injuries have slowed Megatron down in the middle of this 2014 season, but when he’s on the field he’s as close to perfection down-field as this league has ever known.

The fifth spot in this list would usually go to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, a former MVP and all-around dominant running back. However, well-known off-field problems have kept AP sidelined for most of the season, and any return of his remains in doubt. Instead, we’ll give the fifth spot to his replacements, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon, who have combined to put up a solid 700+ yards and 6 rushing touchdowns in his absence.
