Green Bay Packers
The division showdowns were won by the Packers, Panthers and Steelers. On to the playoffs. Also qualifying for the Super Bowl chase were the Ravens, who got the final AFC wild card.
The NFC and AFC North titles will be fought for by iconic franchises, in sacred arenas; just 60 minutes of mayhem in old, cold NFL towns.
Meanwhile, the Bengals (9-4-1) host the Broncos (11-3) on Monday night. Denver already owns a playoff spot, but trails New England for the AFC’s top slot.
So another week of football is in the books, and there is still so much to determine over the final two weeks of the season. Division titles, playoff berths, draft order!
Let’s take a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of Week 15. Here are the four takeaways you need to know from Sunday.
He is not better than Joe Montana or Johnny Unitas, and he hasn’t had the longevity to his career that allows him to go by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or even Brett Favre. But soon Aaron Rodgers will probably be ahead of them all.

The 2014 NFL regular season is rounding a curve toward its end, and some teams are beginning to distance themselves from the pack. Now, there is going to be a potential Super Bowl match-up between the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots. CBS Sports Tracy Wolfson talks how this weekend’s game pitting Tom Brady against Aaron Rodgers may go.
It’s heating up in Green Bay. Say what? Yep, the Packers couldn’t be hotter.
Both teams are suffering through hard times right now, but at least the Giants are playing the game with effort and a desire to win. The Bears play as if pride doesn’t exist.
Considered the NFL’s best division heading into the season, the NFC West is not disappointing. The top three contenders from the sector, Arizona, Seattle and San Fran, all were winners Sunday.
It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
The Minnesota Vikings are set to take on the Green Bay Packers on “Thursday Night Football,” and these are both two teams that are starting to turn their season around. Former NFL quarterback Steve Beuerlein of CBS Sports took a few moments to speak about the NFC North contest this Thursday.
