GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A month into the season, few people outside of Green Bay would have given the Packers a shot at the NFC North title.
Heck, even the folks in Green Bay could have been forgiven for feeling a little pessimistic. The injuries were already starting to pile up, and the Packers had been the victims of the Inaccurate Reception.
With a losing record five weeks in and the Chicago Bears off to a blazing start, a wild card seemed about the best the Packers could do.
Now look at them. One of the NFL's hottest teams over the past two months with seven victories in eight games, Green Bay (9-4) can clinch the division title with a win Sunday in Chicago.
