since the Vikings joined the league in 1961 The Bears Lions and Packers have been in the same division or conference since the NFL began a conference format in 1933 Largely because the four teams have played each other at least twice a year with the exception of the strikeshortened 1982 season for more than half a century more than 80 years in the case of the Bears Lions and Packers the entire
