Three weeks into the season and the NFC North standings are almost in reverse order of what they were when the 2012 season ended.

Alone on top sit the Chicago Bears, who remain undefeated after putting a beating on the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

The Detroit Lions rallied to win in Washington, 27-20. At 2-1 the Lions are off to their best start since beginning the 2011 season with five straight victories.

Green Bay lost a rollercoaster game in Cincinatti, 34-30. The Bengals jumped out to a 14-0 lead before the Packers scored 30 unanswered points in the second and third quarters, only to blow the game over the final 18 minutes.


  1. Chicago: 3-0
  2. Detroit: 2-1
  3. Green Bay: 1-2
  4. Minnesota: 0-3

Next week the Packers have a bye, the Lions host the Bears, and the Vikings host the Steelers in London. It'll be a battle of 0-and-3 ballclubs. We're pretty sure the NFL International Series was hoping for just that!
