Regardless of what you think of their 5-1 record, they still won five games. And in the NFL, that’s a really difficult thing to do regardless of how their victories are coming.

Chicago jumped from No. 11 to No. 7, which puts them in serious contender standing, even if there are still questions about the offense:

The Bears’ defense is starting to look like 2018 again, but two years later, the offense is still holding this team back from being a real Super Bowl contender.

The Packers dropped from No. 5 to No. 9.

Davante Adams came back and the Packers’ offense got worse? Aaron Rodgers nearly threw two pick-6s in a surprising blowout loss.

As for the Vikings and Lions, they remain near the bottom of the NFL. The Lions jumped four spots from No. 26 to No. 22 while the Vikings fell from No. 22 to No. 27 after their embarrassing loss to the Falcons.

It’s beginning to feel safe to say the NFC North will come down to the Bears and Packers, who face off in Weeks 12 and 17.
