The Detroit Lions official website ran a poll asking fans to vote on which NFC North team they consider to be the Lions top rival. The only conclusion that the poll reached is that it isn’t the Minnesota Vikings.
The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers each finished voting (the poll is closed) with 48% of the vote. The poll has been run so I won’t put up another here. Rather, I ask you to explain the team you see as the Lions biggest rival.
I’ll pick the Green Bay Packers from the standpoint of their history of excellence. I have always disliked the Packers more than the Bears and consider Green Bay the bigger roadblock the Lions will need to clear to gain NFC North supremacy.
Who do you say is the Lions biggest rival and more importantly, why?
