NFL Week 11 Sunday Schedule: Vikings & Bears battle for NFC North lead in prime time

New, comments

Tune in tonight for a big NFC North battle that could very well shape the chase for the division title.

The Green Bay Packers are now 4-5-1 after losing in Seattle on Thursday night, and they face an uphill climb to reach the top of the NFC North. The good news for the Packers is that tonight, at least one of the two teams above them in the division standings will lose barring a tie game.

That’s because the 6-3 Chicago Bears host the 5-3-1 Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. On paper, the Bears look like the better team; believe it or not, they are actually in the top five in the NFL both in total points scored and allowed. The Bears also feature the tenth-ranked offense and top ranked defense by DVOA, while Minnesota sits at 17th and 7th respectively.

The two teams will meet again later this season, however, as they close out the regular season in week 17 in Minnesota.
