NFL reporter picks Bears to win NFC North

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears could be the team to beat in the NFL North this season.

On ESPN's Get Up! on Wednesday, NFL reporter Sal Paolantonio picked the Bears to win the division.

"I am going with the Chicago Bears because I like what their new general manager has done in terms of the front seven," Paolantonio said. "I like the way Justin Fields has developed into a dual-threat quarterback who can win from the pocket... I think he is in the MVP conversation."

The veteran reporter thinks that the Packers will have some difficulty in the transfer of power from Aaron Rodgers to Jordan Love at the quarterback position this upcoming season.

"For Jordan Love, it's going to be difficult a transition. But I think the Bears have a good foundation in place," Paolantonio said.

We should be able to see how things unfold fairly early as the Bears and Packers play their rivalry game in only 18 days.
