It’s still early, but it certainly looks like the NFC North will be a two-team race. With the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings sitting at 0-3, the division could come down to the Green Bay Packers and upstart Detroit Lions.

Week 4 will give fans an early opportunity to see which team has the advantage. After looking hopeless for three quarters on Sunday, Jordan Love and the Packers pulled off a miracle comeback against the New Orleans Saints. In his first season as the team’s undisputed starter, Love threw 7 touchdowns to 1 interception.

The Lions didn’t make things nearly as dramatic in Week 3. The team successfully nailed two field goals for the Atlanta Falcons, handily winning the contest 20-6. It was a welcome change for the Lions, who have mostly relied on their potent offense to overcome opponents.

Points may be tough to come by against a tough Packers front in Week 4. Can the Lions do enough to take control of the NFC North? Or will Love and the Packers pull off another late win?
