NFC North Standings

Packers 3-2

Lions 3-2

Vikings 2-3

Bears 2-3


The Packers simply dominated the Vikings last Thursday night behind 105 yards and two touchdowns from running back Eddie Lacy. The Packers defense racked up an impressive six sacks in the victory, along with two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown by former Bear Julius Peppers. Despite the lackluster opponent, the Packers still appear to have their offense full in sync right now with Lacy and Randall Cobb fully healthy. With the rest of the division suffering from inconsistent play, the Packers have a golden opportunity over the next few games to assert themselves as the clear frontrunners in the NFC North.
