One thought to belong to the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers, respectively, the NFC East and NFC North are pretty tight right now. The Philadelphia Eagles took the outright lead in the former, albeit by just a half-game as the 5-5 Cowboys remained idle. Right behind Dallas are the New York Giants, who won their fourth straight after that 0-6 start.

Among the Great Lakes teams, the first-place Detroit Lions lost at the Pittsburgh Steelers, dropping them into a tie with the Chicago Bears (victorious over the Baltimore Ravens). Those Packers, meanwhile, dropped their third in a row, continuing to struggle in the absence of Aaron Rodgers. What does the future hold for these divisions?

Out of the North?

If Aaron Rodgers can come back healthy, and if the Packers somehow get into the playoffs, would that make them a sleeper?
