NFC North Standings From the Last Decade Highlight Packers' Dominance
The Green Bay Packers have utterly dominated the NFC North over the past decade. With Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the Packers won a Super Bowl in 2010-11 and have remained dominant since.

A recent graphic showed that, between 2010-2019, the Packers went 102-56-2 overall. The next closest team in the division, the Minnesota Vikings, went just 81-77-2. The Chicago Bears are even further behind at 76-84. The gap of 21 games between the Packers and Vikings is the second-largest gap at the top of any division over the last decade, behind only the New England Patriots and the AFC East. They also have the second-best overall record in the NFL over the last decade, just pipping the Pittsburgh Steelers by one tie.
The Packers only missed the playoffs twice in the last decade, although some would argue even that is a disappointment given the dominance of Aaron Rodgers over that time. Most of these wins were racked up by former head coach Mike McCarthy, who didn't depart until 2018. Despite their successes, the Packers have also not been able to return to the Super Bowl since that victoryat the start of the decade, leaving them with a number of what-ifs.
Still, their dominance over the last 10 years is quite remarkable. Even as the Packers seem to be making plans for the future by drafting a new quarterback and running back, they are still projected to win nine games next season. Considering they just made the NFC Championship Game after going 13-3, there's probably a few more years left for Rodgers and the Packers to extend their success into the 2020s.
