Week 4 couldn't have gone much worse for the Green Bay Packers. The Detroit Lions handed them a humiliating loss in their own stadium, a win that already significantly hurts the Packers' hopes of winning the NFC North.

The Minnesota Vikings won their first game of the season to pull within one win of the Packers. The only positive for Green Bay was the Chicago Bears blowing a 28-7 lead at home to the Denver Broncos.

Let's take a closer look at each team in the division. Here are the updated NFC North power rankings after an eventful Week 4.

4. Chicago Bears (0-4)

The Bears lost the game, but their odds of drafting Caleb Williams went up significantly. If the season ended today, Chicago would own the top two picks of the 2024 NFL Draft. The Bears and Carolina Panthers are the only 0-4 teams, and Chicago owns Carolina's first-round pick.

Despite the Bears' fourth-quarter collapse, Justin Fields had his best game of the season, completing 28 of 35 passes for 335 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception, with a passer rating of 132.7.

The problem was that Fields' mistakes came at the worst times. Fields fumbled with the Bears up 28-21, and the Broncos returned it for a touchdown. He then threw an interception on their final possession.

It started so well. Fields completed his first 16 passes, and the Bears looked on course for a blowout win. Then they turned back into the Chicago Bears.
