Two weeks into the season, and the NFC North has zero undefeated teams left. That didn't take long. A week after defeating the defending champions, the Detroit Lions fell back down to earth against a hungry, desperate Seattle Seahawks team.
Detroit shouldn't feel too bad about this loss, though, especially because it's early in the year.
The rest of the NFC North seems wide open, with plenty of unknowns going forward. That's the good news.
Where do the Lions stand amongst their NFC North peers as Week 2 comes to a close? Let's dig in a little.
4. Chicago Bears
After a pair of games, Chicago Bears fans are wondering how this team could look almost identical to the one they saw in 2022. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Bears offense once again looked inept, outside of their very first drive which ended with a Justin Fields touchdown run.
Following their initial score, it was tough sledding for Chicago. Fields wound up taking six sacks on the day, holding the ball far too long on some occasions. He finished 16-for-29 with 211 passing yards, one touchdown and two late interceptions.
On defense, the Bears had a hard time stopping Baker Mayfield, who threw for 317 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. Chicago was unable to bring Mayfield down at all, either, as they failed to sack him even once on the afternoon.
Although the Bears went out and added some big pieces throughout the offseason, they have looked much like the same team thus far, and that could result with yet another season as the league's worst.
Next week, the Bears get the pleasure of going up against Patrick Mahomes en route to an 0-3 start.
