NFC North roundup: Zero wins


In a seemingly impossible happening, the NFC North came out winless on a week where two of the teams played each other.

Welcome to our weekly roundup of the beloved division Minnesota resides in, this is the space we use to do what we can to keep you up to date on where the Vikings stand and what happened around the region in the NFL.

This week we can safely say, marks a new low for the year.

ST. LOUIS 42, CHICAGO 21: With Jay Cutler still missing, Josh McCown did a solid job filling in at quarterback for the Bears, but the defense failed them, giving up four touchdowns to the Rams offense with their defense adding a fifth late.

McCown threw for 352 yards and two touchdowns but Chicago turned the ball over three times. Combine that with 258 rushing yards for St. Louis, and it equals a fifth Chicago loss.

Luckily for the Bears, Detroit found themselves on upset alert as well.

TAMPA BAY 24, DETROIT 21: The Lions are in danger of pulling the old fall apart late in the season trick.

They've made the playoffs just once this millennium, and Sunday is a prime example of why, with the lowly Bucs ruining Detroit's chance of taking the division lead by themselves.

Matt Stafford had thrown just eight interceptions all year, but threw half that many Sunday, the last of which buried the Lions chances deep in Tampa Bay territory.

The Bucs got two touchdowns from Mike Glennon, both to Tiquan Underwood, and Tampa got their third win of the season.

Here is our game story on the seldom seen, much talked about tie between the other two teams in the North.

Standings look like this after the results Sunday, with the division still anyone's for the taking.



GREEN BAY: 5-5-1


We look forward to better weeks when teams actually, you know, win.
