2011 NFL Standings: Lions, Packers Lead NFC North

Only three teams in the NFL are still undefeated, and two of them are in the NFC North. The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are both off to a 3-0 start (as are the Buffalo Bills), meaning they not only top the NFC North, but they are at the top of the general NFL standings as well.

Here's the NFC North breakdown:

t-1. Detroit Lions (3-0)

t-1. Green Bay Packers (3-0)

3. Chicago Bears (1-2)

↵

4. Minnesota Vikings (0-3)

The Lions and Packers don't meet until Thanksgiving (Nov. 24). They play again in the regular season finale on Jan. 1 in a game that very well could decide the division title with the way the two teams have played so far. Both teams have looked very good, and it appears they will rule the NFC North this season.

(By the way, in case you somehow forgot, the Lions' first game against the Bears is on Monday, Oct. 10.)
