Marquette, MI – The NFC North is turning into a dog fight. The Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are all fighting for the top spot in the north.

The Detroit Lions went to Minnesota on Sunday for a big match-up with the Vikings who came into the game at 5-2 and atop of the division. Detroit’s Matthew Stafford came through completing 23 of 36 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns along with one interception. The main story in the game was in the final minute down by three the Lions used a hurry up offense and crossed midfield with less than 10 seconds left. Kicker Matt Prater came in and booted a 58 yard field goal and send the game into overtime. Matthew Stafford led the Lions in over time completing a pass to Golden Tate who danced into the end zone and the Lions left Minnesota with a victory. The Lions are now at 5-4 on the season and in second place in the NFC North. The Lions are now on a bye week.

The Green Bay Packer fan boos rained down at Lambeau on Sunday as once again they lose to a team with a below 500 record. Aaron Rodgers was 26 of 43 for 297 yards in the loss. Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck passed for 281 yards in the Colts 31-26 victory. The Packers will now get prepared for a trip to Tennessee to take on the Titans on Sunday.
