NFC North Watch: How do Bears, Packers, Lions sit?


Unless you're a Packers fan, it was a brutal day for the NFC North.

Packers? First place, tied with the Bears at 8-4 thanks to that 23-14 win over the Vikings.

In Chicago, the Bears had a golden opportunity to retain their one-game lead over Green Bay, but fell in overtime -- at home -- to the Seattle Seahawks, 23-17. Ex-Viking Sidney Rice had the game-winning grab in a violent collision. The win gives also gives Seattle a one-game lead over the Vikings in the NFC Wild Card race.

In Detroit, die-hard Lions fans are beside themselves after a brutal loss to Indianapolis. Andrew Luck tossed a TD pass with no time left to give Indy a 35-33 win. Detroit falls to 4-8, losing their fourth straight.

So, after Week 13, it looks like this: Bears and Packers tied at the top with an 8-4 mark, Vikes in third at 6-6 and Detroit in the cellar at 4-8.
