If there was a silver lining in the Green Bay Packers’ 29-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Womens Customized Green Bay Packers Jerseys , it was that they received help from NFC counterparts in keeping the North division wide open.Although the Packers dropped to 3-3-1, they remain very much in the thick of the divisional battle after home losses by both Minnesota and Detroit. Turnovers led to the demise from both teams, while Kirk Cousins caught some flack after the latest loss. Meanwhile, Chicago jumped back to the top of the leaderboard after a win against the Jets despite a couple of concerning injuries.With the trade deadline looming this afternoon, here is a look at the news across the division, including a look back at former deals.Minnesota Vikings (4-3-1)Lost 30-20 vs. New OrleansNOTEBOOK: Zimmer ‘Encouraged’ After Vikings Post 3-1 Record in OctoberWith a record that many Minnesota fans would deem disappointing, Head Coach Mike Zimmer believes the opposite, saying that the team’s play over the past four weeks is encouraging.Kirk Cousins is absolutely not the problem in MinnesotaDespite being labeled a “flop” by Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, Cousins may be receiving some unwarranted blame for the team’s recent struggles.3 best trades ever made by the Minnesota VikingsA notable pass rusher headlines the most shrewd moves made by the Vikings franchise in the organization’s trade history.Chicago Bears (4-3)Won 24-10 vs. New York JetsBrad Biggs’ 10 thoughts on the Bears’ 24-10 win over the JetsKhalil Mack’s lingering injury, a beautiful screen pass , and just 207 yards of total offense allowed highlighted the Bears’ victory weekend.One year later: Bears’ Zach Miller nears recovery milestoneChicago’s tight end has still been contributing to the team behind the scenes as he works to eventually continue his professional career after a gruesome leg injury.Chicago Bears OL depth will be tested without LongThe Bears’ grooming of both James Daniels and Eric Kush at left guard early in the season will pay dividends as right guard Kyle Long misses extended time with a foot injury.Detroit Lions (3-4)Lost 28-14 vs. SeattleLoss to Seattle shows how far Detroit Lions must go to contendTurnovers on both offense and special teams, in addition to allowing a perfect passer rating for Russell Wilson, doomed Detroit on Sunday.Four Downs: The statistical impact of ‘Snacks’ for LionsAs backed by the rushing stats on Sunday, the Lions instantly gained a presence against the run with the trade for Damon Harrison at defensive tackle.Detroit Lions’ Golden Tate: I’m not going anywhere at NFL trade deadlineThe 30-year old receiver’s name has been circulating in rumors, but Tate insists he believes he will remain a Lion this season. Bruce Arians, potentially the Brett Favre of coaches, retired after the 2011 season, before landing with the Colts in 2012. He retired once again after 2017.Now working with CBS, Arians recently said he’d consider emerging from retirement for one and only one job — the one in Cleveland.Regardless of whether Arians will be considered for the position (as noted over the weekend, the biggest question is the threshold matter of who will be making the hiring decision?) Green Bay Packers T-Shirt , his interest underscores the reality that plenty of coaches, fired, retired, and/or currently employed, will want to work for the Browns, so that he can work with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.Over the next two months, plenty of off-the-record, behind-the-scenes discussions will occur, as the Browns reach out to potentially interested candidates, and as potentially interested candidates reach out to the Browns. At some point Green Bay Packers Hats , the Browns will have to say yes to someone, an inherently stressful proposition since this means they’ll have to say no to everyone else.As to Arians, it’s easy to say he’d only be interested in the Browns job, given that it’s the only job currently open. It’s safe to say he’d be interested in other jobs, if they come open. Most notably, the opportunity to work with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay would intrigue any quarterback whisperer, and Arians is one of the best.It’s also safe to say the Cardinals may want compensation from whoever hires Arians, given that he retired with time left on his contract. That’s precisely what happened when Dick Vermeil emerged from retirement with the Rams to coach the Chiefs in the early years of the last decade.
