The NFC North division comes down to one game. This Sunday, the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions square off with the division and the right to host a playoff game on the line.

Only two teams have longer winning streaks, with both Pittsburgh and New England having won six games in a row. The Lions, on the other hand, have lost their last two contests, dropping them back into the tie with the Packers with the final game remaining.
