If there was any doubt that the NFC North was the most competitive division in all of the NFL, look no further than the standings. The Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers are all within a half of a game of another for the top spot in the division.
Entering Week 7 of the NFL season, there is no clear decisive leader at the top of the NFC North division. Both the Lions, Bears, and Packers have made their cases at why they should be at the top. But as the case was when the season began, the division still goes through Green Bay. The Lions failed to beat the Packers in the first game between the two teams this season, and the Bears have yet to play the Packers this season.
Until the Bears or Lions can prove that they can defeat the Packers, the NFC North division still runs through Green Bay.
The Packers are at the top of the NFC North power rankings while the page turns to Week 7 of the NFL Season.
