NFC North Update

December 18, 2013

When the Baltimore Ravens beat the Detroit Lions on Justin Tucker’s heroics (6 field goals including a game winning one from 61 yards) the result also affected the NFC North playoff situation.

Big cheers went up from Chicago and Green Bay as now both the Bears and Packers control their playoff fate. Chicago leads both Green Bay and Detroit by a fraction of a game.

The Bears host the Packers in the season finale on December 29th. This week the Bears visit the Philadelphia Eagles while the “Pack” host the Steelers in a 2010 season Super Bowl redux.

If both teams win, the NFC North title will go to the winner of the Packers at Bears regular season finale.

The Detroit Lions, who unless things change have really blown a divisional title, still have a chance. First they must win at home vs the Giants and at Minnesota. In addition the Lions need at least one loss by both the Packers and Bears.
