After the Packers suffered a loss at Minnesota the NFC North title became slightly tougher. However, the Packers went on to beat the Rams at home and head into the bye. The Vikings suffered losses to the 49ers and the winless Lions. After all this the Packers can clinch the Division at home against the Bears this weekend if two things occur.
Step One: Vikings Lose on Thursday
The Vikings are coming off an embarassing loss to the winless lions. Meanwhile their opponent, the Steelers, just pulled of an upset versus their rivals, the Ravens. The game is on Thursday night so both teams will have a short week to prepare. The Steelers are bairly winning games and just staying realvent. Meanwhile the Vikings are on a fall from realvence. Since beating the Packers, the Vikings have struggled both offensively and defensively. They may also be without Adam Thielen. They are still favored to win on Thursday, but the Steelers are playing to save their season.
Step Two: Beat the Bears
As much as the Packers have owned the Bears, division games are always tough. The Bears come in after being torn apart by the Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Packers are coming off of the bye and presumably getting healthy. The Packers can clinch the division at home versus their biggest rival, and they know it. The Packers sometimes come out flat offensively after breaks but the Bears are struggling as a whole. Additionally, the Bears may be forced to start Andy Dalton again. In their last matchup 24-14 at Soldier Field.
