After four weeks (minus one game) of the 2017 NFL regular season, no undefeated teams remain in the NFC and as of Monday afternoon there is just one in the entire NFL. The 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs host Washington on Monday night looking to stay undefeated, but the NFC picture looks solid for the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay sits in a six-way tie for the top spot in the NFC at 3-1, and they are matched in the NFC North by the Detroit Lions, who would be 4-0 if not for an overturned touchdown late against the Atlanta Falcons in week three.
However, the Packers’ schedule shows a tough road from here on out, with just two games remaining against teams that currently sit under .500.
Outside of that, though, the Packers face a slate of opponents the rest of the way that looks to be a challenge. Green Bay gets the NFC South division on the schedule this year, a division which has three teams with just one loss and one at .500. This coming week, the Packers play a 2-2 Cowboys team that was the class of the NFC East a year ago. Then there are two more games to play each against 3-1 Detroit and 2-2 Minnesota, plus a road game against a 3-1 Steelers squad.
Only the 2-2 Baltimore Ravens truly look like a paper tiger, as their two wins came against the Bengals and Browns before getting demolished in two straight games by the Jacksonville Jaguars (in London) and the Steelers.
Here’s a look at the NFC standings for the time being.
T-1: Green Bay Packers (3-1)
T-1: Detroit Lions (3-1)
3: Minnesota Vikings (2-2)
4: Chicago Bears (1-3)
