Notes from the North: Week 5


A look at how the rest of the NFC North fared in Week 5 action:

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay 24, St. Louis 10
Record: 5-0

Aaron Rodgers went 586 passes without throwing an interception at Lambeau Field. On Sunday, the Packers quarterback threw two interceptions in an eight-throw span. Even with the turnover problems, Rodgers still was able to lead Green Bay to the victory, throwing for 241 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Despite Rodgers' pick problem, the Packers still won the turnover battle, as the Green Bay defense turned up the pressure. Rams quarterback Nick Foles threw four interceptions, including one taken away by rookie Quinten Collins, which was returned 45 yards for a touchdown. Foles was also sacked three times in the Green Bay victory.

Minnesota Vikings
Record: 2-2

The Vikings had a bye in Week 5.

Up next: October 18 vs. Kansas City

Detroit Lions
Arizona 42, Detroit 17
Record: 0-5

The Lions scored first and held a 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. Arizona then piled up the next 35 points, blowing Detroit out at Ford Field as the NFL's only winless team dropped its fifth straight to open the 2015 season.

Matthew Stafford threw three interceptions before being benched for Dan Orlovsky in the second half. The turnover problems didn't help Detroit's defense, which was without its top two defensive tackles. The Lions had major problems stopping Arizona's rushing attack, as the Cardinals ran for 187 yards and three touchdowns. Detroit, meanwhile, had just 57 rushing yards, with only one run of more than 10 yards.

Up next: October 18 vs. Chicago
