Week 3 in the NFC North offers some opportunities for teams to make a statement as they near the end of the season’s first quarter. The matchups are headlined by a Monday Night contest in Seattle where the Seahawks (1-1)will host the Green Bay Packers (1-1). The Packers look to make a statement with a tough road win and re-solidify themselves as top contenders for their division and in the NFC. The Seahawks are at home again after a solid win against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.
The Chicago Bears (1-1) will play host to the St. Louis Rams (1-1) and new Head Coach Jeff Fisher. Both teams are dealing with injuries to and may be without their starting running backs. Each looks to get over .500 and build some momentum.
The Detroit Lions (1-1) head to Tennessee (0-2) to take on a struggling Titans team that is 0-2. The Titans are struggling on offense led by star running back Chris Johnson, who averages less than a yard per carry so far in 2012. They are searching for their first win of the season. The Lions are coming off a tough loss at San Francisco this past Sunday night. Lions All-Pro WR Calvin Johnson leads the team in catches but has yet to find the end zone.
