List of All the Players Selected to ESPN’s NFC North All-Decade Team
ESPN NFL NFC North reporters pulled together to vote on the top players from the last decade.
From 2010-2019, the NFC North combined for six NFC Championship game appearances and a Super Bowl victory. The Packers had the most success during the decade winning six division titles, appearing in four of those NFC Championship games, and the Super Bowl win during the 2010 season. Seeing the nine names from the Packers on this All-Decade team, it's no surprise that they were as successful as they were. Aaron Rodgers was selected as the best Packers player during that timeframe.
Minnesota also had a great decade that featured seven players selected to the team. Adrian Peterson was picked as the best player of the decade for the Vikings. As a franchise, Minnesota won two division titles (2015/2017) and appeared in one NFC Championship game. Two active players in Harrison Smith and Kyle Rudolph are on the list.
Matt Forte was voted as the Bears' player of the decade after rushing for over 8,600 yards and 64 touchdowns during his Chicago career. He was left off the All-Decade team, however, due to Adrian Peterson taking that spot. Chicago's lone offensive player on the list is left guard Kyle Long who played with the Bears from 2013-2019. Defensively, the Bears have four players on the All-Decade team.
Detroit's Calvin Johnson was picked as the franchise's best player over the last decade, and to no surprise, he was also selected as one of the best wide receivers on the All-Decade team. The Lions made two playoff appearances between 2010-2019, losing both wild card round games. A total of five players, Johnson on offense, three on defense, and one special team's player were listed on the all-decade team put together by ESPN.
