Week 7 certainly was a season-altering week for the NFC North division.
After losses by the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers returned to first place in the NFC North division. The Packers are sitting in a comfortable position as the team already has a victory over the Lions this season and faces a Bears team in two weeks that has been crippled with injuries.
As for the Minnesota Vikings, like Josh Freeman and his passes against the New York Giants on Monday, it is impossible to complete a rational thought on their relevancy this season.
Entering week 8 of the regular season, the Green Bay Packers return to the top spot of the NFC North power rankings.
