NFC North Battleground: Week 1 Results and Standings

If you are a fan of NFC North football, then you were thoroughly satisfied with the division on Sunday.

All four NFC teams played on Sunday, and for the most part, all four teams looked impressive at different points in their respective games.

At least the NFC North is not the AFC North, where no team in that division won a game in week 1.

Here is a look at how NFC North teams fared on Sunday.


San Francisco 49ers 34, Green Bay Packers 28

  • Despite the loss, the Green Bay Packers proved that they still are the right up there with the San Francisco 49ers at the top of the NFC Conference. Jordy Nelson had a strong day for the Packers compiling 130 yard on 7 receptions to go along with 1 touchdown. Packers fans can expect to see the 49ers again, perhaps in the NFC championship game.

Detroit Lions 34, Minnesota Vikings 24

  • The Detroit Lions’ offense was very impressive with newest addition Reggie Bush. Bush had a total of 191 yards from scrimmage to go along with 1 receiving touchdown. For the Vikings, Adrian Peterson scored a total of three touchdowns, however, three interceptions by quarterback Christian Ponder thwarted any opportunity for the team to stay on pace with the Lions.

Chicago Bears 24, Cincinnati Bengals 21

  • The Chicago Bears were impressive during their second half comeback against the Bengals, but make no mistake about it, it was an ugly win for the Bears. The game could have gone either way, and if it wasn’t for undisciplined Bengals’ penalty late in the fourth quarter, the Bears could have easily lost this game.


  1. Detroit Lions (1-0)
  2. Chicago Bears (1-0)
  3. Green Bay Packers (0-1)
  4. Minnesota Vikings (0-1)
