NFC North, Week 2: Bears alone on top, Packers bounce back

  • Author:

Two weeks of NFC North football are in the books and the Bears sit alone in first place with a 2-0 record.

As impressive as Jay Cutler was on the final drive against the Vikings, he wasn't nearly as impressive as that QB in Wisconsin.

Aaron Rodgers tied a Green Bay franchise record with 480 passing yards to lead the Packers over the Redskins, 38-20.

Rodgers tossed four touchdowns in the game -- three of which he fired in the first half.

The Lions captured the attention of the NFL after beating the Vikings in week 1, but they took a heavy dose of reality with a loss at Arizona, 25-21. Reggie Bush took a helmet to his knee in the second quarter and played very little rest of the game.

And in last place it's your Minnesota Vikings.


  • Packers (1-1) at Bengals (0-1)
  • Bears (2-0) at Steelers (0-1)
  • Lions (1-1) at Redskins (0-2)
  • Vikings (0-2) vs. Browns (0-2)
