NFC North


Chicago Bears – Fields was healthy enough to play and whenever he can play, you start him. He minimized the incompletions to just five, but he also threw for two interceptions. Fields made up for it with his legs, adding 71 rushing yards, including a 55-yard touchdown run through the Packers’ defense.

Detroit Lions – In case you haven’t noticed, the Lions have won four of their last five games. The only loss in the stretch was a nail biter on Thanksgiving to the Bills. Everybody contributed to this win, starting with Jared Goff, who had a remarkable game, throwing for 340 yards and two touchdowns. D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams each rushed for a touchdown and Amon-Ra St. Brown had a huge game with 11 receptions for 114 yards and two scores. There has been a host of receivers who have posed as the No. 2 receiver since T.J. Hockenson was traded, but this week, it was D.J. Chark. By the way, Jameson Williams did not catch his only target of the game.

Green Bay Packers – The Bears put forth a good effort but ultimately fell short because of Christian Watson scoring two more touchdowns (that’s eight in four games for those of you keeping track at home). A.J. Dillon was the high man in the backfield with 18 rush attempts for 93 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Jones added 74 total yards but was held scoreless. Aaron Rodgers missed some easy passes to Randall Cobb but you knew he wasn’t losing to the Bears.

Minnesota Vikings – Kirk Cousins had one of his worst games of the season but he played with a lead for most of the game. He only threw for one touchdown and the run game save the day with two scores and 100 yards (Dalvin Cook 86 yards, Alexander Mattison 14). Sauce Gardner kept Justin Jefferson under wraps for most of the game until his fourth quarter touchdown sealed the deal.
