NFC North History

Did You Know?

-- Chicago was the only NFC team to not win a road game last season, as the Bears covered only twice away from Soldier Field in losses to the Giants and Lions.

-- The Packers lost all three home games to division opponents in 2015, but rebounded last season by winning and covering at Lambeau Field against Chicago, Detroit, and Minnesota.

-- Detroit closed last season an 0-5 ATS stretch, capped off by a 20-point loss at Seattle in the NFC Wild Card round. Prior to that five-game ATS skid, the Lions covered their previous four contests in November.

-- Minnesota began last season at 5-0 SU/ATS, but slumped to 3-8 SU and 4-7 ATS record over the final 11 games.
