It’s hard to believe we’re already talking about week 4 and the NFL season will be a quarter done after this coming Monday Night game. It’s a busy week in the NFC North with some very good matchups to look forward to.
For the Green Bay Packers, week 4 is a very welcome sight. Need I even explain the who, what, when, where and why? They are eager to get that putrid taste out of their mouths after a very controversial loss on the final play in Monday Night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. They return home and host the 0-3 New Orleans Saints led by QB Drew Brees.
The Minnesota Vikings ride high into Detroit to face the Lions after having knocked off the previously undefeated and heavily favored San Francisco 49ers in Minnesota this past weekend. It is the first divisional game for both the Vikes and Lions this season. The Lions come into this game licking the wounds of a brutal overtime loss at Tennessee after scoring twice in the final :18 seconds to force the OT.
The Bears cap off the week with a Monday Night matchup in Dallas against the Cowboys. Both teams are coming off wins and strong performances in week 3. The winner of this one makes a strong statement as to their standing as a contender in the NFC.
