When the NFC North showdown between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers ended on Monday night, three teams set tied atop the division with equal 5-3 overall records to go with their 2-1 mark within the division:

NFC NORTH W L T PCT HOME ROAD DIV CONF PF PA DIFF STRK
Detroit 5 3 0 .625 3-1-0 2-2-0 2-1-0 4-2-0 217 197 +20 Won 1
Green Bay 5 3 0 .625 3-1-0 2-2-0 2-1-0 3-2-0 232 185 +47 Lost 1
Chicago 5 3 0 .625 3-1-0 2-2-0 2-1-0 3-3-0 240 226 +14 Won 1
Minnesota 1 7 0 .125 1-3-0 0-4-0 0-3-0 0-6-0 186 252 -66 Lost 4

 

The Bears, Packers and Lions all have a legitimate shot to win the division now, especially with Aaron Rogers, the division’s best player, sidelined for the next month. The three teams have already played each other, and the Lions and Bears will square off in two weeks, followed by a Thanksgiving Day game between Detroit and Green Bay.
