NFC North Standings

Packers 5-2

Lions 5-2

Bears 3-4

Vikings 2-5


The Packers continued their hot streak last Sunday, dominating the Panthers 38-17 en route to their fourth straight victory. Aaron Rodgers turned in yet another MVP-caliber performance with 255 passing yards and three touchdowns with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb combining for 201 of those yards and two touchdowns. The Packers defense has also stepped up as of late and remains an opportunistic unit, able to force turnovers when the team needs them most. Though the Packers remain head-to-head with the Lions for the division lead, they appear to have the upper hand with no major injuries to any of their star players. Up next for the Packers will be a road trip to face the struggling Saints.
