Green Bay Packers , NFC North Rundown: the division remains undefeated against northern enemies who are not NFC

A team-wide effort, which included an improved offensive line game, kept Detroit in touch with Green Bay at the top of the division.

A 27-16 win over Denver left the Green Bay Packers at the top of the NFC’s North standings on Sunday. But after three games, the Packers are far from comfortable in this position.

The division is 7-0-1 against non-NFC opponents for three weeks, and both defeats were against the Packers. Green Bay remains at home with little rest this week to face an enemy of the NFC East in Philadelphia, which was shot last week by a Detroit team that feels confident at first.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings were victorious behind their continued presence on the field against Oakland. The Chicago Bears will face the difficult task of facing this rushed attack this week in another divisional clash. Here are the headlines of the week for what is becoming a competitive division race in 2019.
