4. Green Bay Packers

The Packers finished a half game above .500, but their season might have played out much differently if they hadn't been ravaged by injuries, most notably losing star quarterback Aaron Rodgers for more than a month. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy brought a much-needed dimension to an already formidable offense and a bunch of young players, especially on defense, got valuable experience last season due to those injuries. With their continued development and another strong draft, the Packers will be legit.
