It’s 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 the upstart Detroit Lions.

Week 4 will give fans an early chance to see which team has the edge. After three quarters of hopelessness Sunday, Jordan Love and the Packers staged a stunning comeback against the New Orleans Saints. In his first season as the team’s unquestioned starter, Love has thrown 7 touchdowns against 1 interception.

The Lions weren’t nearly as dramatic in Week 3. The team held the Atlanta Falcons to two field goals, easily winning the contest 20–6. It’s a welcome change for the Lions.

Points may be hard to come by against a tough Packers lead in Week 4. Can the Lions do enough to take control of the NFC North? Or will Love and the Packers make a late comeback?
